The bill introduced by Klobuchar and Coons is one example; there’s also movement in states like California, where the governor recently committed to developing a new masterplan for aging for the state. “People are really starting to see it. And so that gives me hope that we can do something about it.”

As far as brands are concerned, that’s a lot of potential sales.
