If you are 43 or Older, You Are Part of the Gray Tsunami!

The gray tsunami, also known as the silver tsunami, gray wave, or grey wave, is a demographic phenomenon that refers to the aging of the baby boomer and Generation X populations and the resulting increase in the number of senior citizens in society [1][2]. By 2030, all baby boomers will be age 65 or older, and the 65 and older population is growing rapidly as baby boomers age [1][2]. This demographic shift is changing the face of the U.S. population and has significant implications for society, including a growing need for long-term care and healthcare services [3]. The term “gray tsunami” is often used to describe this phenomenon because of the potentially overwhelming impact that the aging population could have on healthcare systems and the workforce [2][3].
