By 2030, approximately 20% of the United State's population will be over age 65. For most, these years are a time of good health, independence. Eventually, some adults will develop one or more chronic illnesses with which they will live for years before death. These years are characterized by physical and psychological symptom distress; progressive functional dependence and frailty; and high family support needs. Recent studies suggest that medical care for patients with advance illness is characterized by inadequately treated physical distress; fragmented care systems, poor communication between doctors, patients, and families; and enormous strains on family care givers and support systems.
