Los Angeles Times Editorial Features The SCAN Foundation/UCLA Poll on California Voters' Lack of Preparedness for Health and Long-Term Care Needs

August 16, 2011

On August 15, 2011, the Los Angeles Times published an editorial titled, "Boomer Time Bomb," discussing how Californians are unprepared for their future long-term care needs. The article featured findings from an August 2011 poll commissioned by The SCAN Foundation/UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, which sought to better understand health and long-term care issues facing middle-aged voters given the state’s current economic crisis and the rising number of Californians older than 60. This population is projected to nearly double to 12 million people in the next 25 years. The poll found that Californians, regardless of political party or income level, were worried about the costs of growing older and looking to their elected officials for support. The poll also received pickup in several other publications throughout the state, including Spanish language media.
