Aging Behind Bars
How do we care for elderly prisoners? A Human Rights Watch report shows the number of prisoners older than 55 is growing at a rate six times that of the rest of the prison population. As  prisoners age and need costly medical care, Massachusetts is scrambling to put plans in place to handle the strain on the system. Bay State policymakers have recommended the creation new assisted living facilities for up to 900 inmates- but is this the best way to handle the problem? What other solutions are out there?

GUESTS:
  Jamie Fellner, author of a Human Rights Watch report, Old Behind Bars
  Beth Schwartzapfel, Boston-based freelance journalist who covers the criminal justice system
  Kathleen Dennehy,  former commissioner for the Massachusetts Department of Corrections.
