Connecticut is old and getting older. One in seven residents is 75 or older, and the 65-plus population is projected to grow by 64 percent by 2030. Caring for an aging population was the topic Thursday of a Google Hangout, a conversation with Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, Sen. Joe Markley and Elaine Ryan of AARP.
The Connecticut Mirror hosted a special Google Hangout with House Speaker J. Brendan Sharkey, D-Hamden, and House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, R-Derby, in advance of the 2015 legislative session. See a replay of the video.
