SYNERGY Home Care Offers Help to Assist the Elderly with Caregiver Shortage
Baby boomers are at retirement age and may require medical support devices and home caregivers.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) October 18, 2013
More and more baby boomers are retiring every day. As they age, many need at home care and help around the house. There is a shortage in medical staffing and in-home caregivers. According to a recent Public Policy Institute study, in 2010, the caregiver support ratio was more than seven potential caregivers for every person in the high-risk years of 80-plus. In 2030, that ratio is expected to fall to four-to-one, and to less than three-to-one in 2050. Rising demand and shrinking families to provide care call for new solutions to the financing and delivery of care and family support.
