Home Care Services

Home care services are one of the fastest growing needs in the United States right now.  Post WWII so-called "baby-boomers" are fast approaching retirement age and according to the latest United States census figures, the over-65 population will be growing dramatically in the next 10-30 years.

Why Home Care?

Ask almost any senior citizen and they will tell you that they have no desire to move into an assisted living center or "retirement home".  

This is certainly understandable.  Though most assisted living centers are very nice places and do a fantastic job at making people feel comfortable, it still just isn't "home".  It's not the place that holds the memories, the place they raised the kids, and it cannot possible hold even a small percentage of the mementos and belongings of a lifetime.

Naturally, there are also costs associated with assisted living centers and these costs are always more than living at home. 

Home care is a great alternative to an assisted living center and in this section, we concentrate on providing information about the kinds of home care services that are available in most communities.

Factoid

The Caregiver occupation is the 8th fastest growing occupation in the US with a slated growth of over 62% between 2000 and 2010 alone with the year 2004 expected to be the biggest year of all.  The first 7 and the 9th are computer related.

If you are interested in owning your own Caregiver company, for more information on the ins and outs.
