Did you know that by 2030, the U.S. government projects our population of people over the age of 65 to be 72 million, double the number that it was in 2000? Today 1/3 of Americans spend 20 hours a week or more in direct care for their parents. Stresses of everyday life, family obligations, and work requirements can make caring for senior loved ones seem almost impossible. Many Americans are turning to home care as a viable option to allow mom and dad to age in place safely and comfortably for as long as possible. How do you find an agency to care for them as if they were their own family member?
