From a Global Perspective, Americans More Optimistic About Old Age

We have the opportunity at Ecumen to serve many optimistic people.  But a new report by the Pew Research Center shows the United States is generally in a better place attitudinally about old age than the rest of the world.

The reason why may surprise you.  The United States is aging more slowly than Europe or Asia largely because of its high rate of immigration. And the study shows that younger countries like America tend to be more optimistic.
