Aging In Place

Older adults with the means prefer to remain in their own home and maintain as much of their independence as possible for as long as possible.

A World of Opportunity

  • Meeting the Desires of Seniors

    Nine out of ten Americans 65 and older want to stay at home for as long as possible, and 80 percent think their current home is where they will always live.

  • Filling Gaps in Existing Care

    Home care complements existing health care services, alleviating pressure on the overall system, allowing more traditional models of care to work and do what they do best.

  • Reducing Health Care Costs

    Elderly Americans receiving home care generally need fewer trips to doctors and hospitals. As a result, home care reduces overall health care costs, while also creating jobs in a new and growing sector. The US saved as much as $25 billion in hospital costs in 2008 alone due to the growth of home care services over the previous decade
