Millions of Americans today depend on some form of long-term care, ranging from nursing homes to assisted living. As more and more baby boomers cross the threshold into old age, the demand for long-term care in the U.S. is expected to outpace supply and funding in the coming decades. There is no panacea, but states are looking at a patchwork of solutions. One approach that is currently used in dozens of states is "adult foster care." NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Joanne Elgart Jennings reports from Oregon. This story is part of our ongoing Chasing the Dream series, in partnership with Next Avenue.
