Poll Shows America's Elders Aging Well

Life After 80 May Be Better Than You Think, Survey Suggests WebMD 12/1/06 "half (47%) of those elders were in excellent or good physical and mental healthmental health...The poll comes when America's life expectancy is at an all-time high: nearly 78 years, according to the CDC...The 85-and-older group is expected to double from nearly 5 million in 2003 to almost 10 million in 2030 as baby boomers age, states a 2005 U.S. Census Bureau report"

Just a Gallop poll, but it is encouraging. Although the 90 and older quality of life numbers are fairly depressing. After 90 it appears that most people fall off a health cliff.
