Although long life can be a benefit, it may also bring a complex mix of multiple chronic conditions, disability, and frailty. Our U.S. health care system, which helps many people to live to a ripe old age, does not necessarily serve well those elders with complex health situations. However, promising new approaches to chronic disease treatment and management—and to geriatric care in general—are being developed and implemented across the nation.
