In this game, "money” is used to pay for services that are needed from providers. While there are obstacles, referrals and even disabilities occur along the way. Your current age will change. You suddenly experience what it is like to be older and face unexpected health care challenges. As a game, it provides a unique view of many issues surrounding aging and health care.
