Care of elderly should be priority for nation's policymakers – Desert News (Salt Lake City, UT)

My friend Maggie will turn 104 next month and she'll likely throw herself a little birthday party and invite a 100 or so of her closest friends.
She sparkles — intelligent, good-humored, caring, funny. We've never had a conversation where she didn't ask first about my husband or how my daughter did on a particular test. She pays attention to the details and remembers from visit to visit, however infrequent. She can tell you what happened in her life yesterday or back in 1932. But she pays attention to your life, too.
