MONDAY at noon on "The Source" — An aging generation of baby boomers, longer life expectancies and a lack of available resources are contributing to what's being called an impending "senior-care crisis."

In 2060, the number of Americans age 65 and older is expected to reach 95 million -- 23 percent of the country's population.

Baby boomers are the largest living adult generation and average life expectancy is up to 79 years. By 2030, the Population Reference Bureau anticipates the number of seniors to surpass the number of children for the first time in U.S. history.
