Abstract/Summary Background: The ageing of baby boomers may create significant financial strain upon aged and community care in the future. Topic and Objectives: In this literature review, we examine why concern has been expressed about Australia’s ability to cope with the “baby boomer bubble”. We discuss differences between baby boomers and their parents and within the baby boomer cohort, and suggest that these differences may result in problems in provision of aged care to baby boomers should current trends continue. Implications: There must be a fit between future models of aged care and the needs and expectations of baby boomers. The views of baby boomers on these issues must be gathered to maximise the likelihood that this fit will occur.
