People also are living a lot longer which complicates things, I would think. My dad is 77 and his mother is 96 and they both have health issues. There is a lot of extended family around to help but if I was obligated to take both of them in to my home it would be very difficult, in terms of living space just for starters. But to Matt's point, if we didn't know they were going to be getting SS and medicare we'd have planned for them differently long ago.
