At this point in time, it’s not much surprise to those within the home care industry that a shortage is looming. The Baby Boomer generation is now retiring and that means the percentage of the U.S. population considered ‘elderly’ will be growing. By 2050, the number of seniors in the country will be doubled what it is now, and if home care support is not available to those who need it, something will have to give.Read More
