Home Care Association of America: Caring for America’s Seniors: The Value of Home Care
Caring for America’s Seniors: The Value of Home Care provides information on the growing and critical role of professional home care in the United States in response to the millions of aging Americans who will need care. The report shines a spotlight on home care as a valuable and vital part of the solution to the challenges that accompany population aging. The report carefully incorporates industry facts, existing data from credible and trusted sources, and stories directly from caregivers and the families they serve to clearly articulate who we are and the benefits we provide – benefits to seniors, their families, the health care system, and the U.S. economy.
Excerpt: “Home care is a relatively young industry – not even a half century old. It was created as an innovative solution to fast-growing care needs of an increasingly elderly population. It provides seniors a choice about how and where they age and delivers peace of mind to family members who are unable, for a variety of reasons, to provide all the care their elderly loved ones need.”
