In today's society, it is important for researchers and practitioners to note that the generation known as the Baby Boomers is more than a socio-demographic clump; it represents a significant part of the population. This paper will be reviewing the issues facing the deaf baby boomer’s population and how they are contrasted to their hearing counterparts. The areas examined include social/political, technological, physical health care, and mental healthcare. In each area, this paper aims to illustrate that it can sometimes be difficult for deaf individuals in the baby boomer generation to find and utilize any number of societal resources.
