Housing Crisis Leads Seniors to In-Home Care

By 10  pm on

It used to be seniors in declining health and unable to care for themselves and their house had to decide whether to sell their home or seek home health care, but now, the economy is making the decision them.

Due to the housing crisis, fewer seniors have found success in selling their homes and have turned to home health care, resulting in a boom in the industry.
In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates caregiving will become the second fastest-growing occupation in the country, with more than 50% growth by 2016.

Susan Reinhard, senior vice president of the AARP, said the organization’s research shows the elderly often prefer to stay in their homes and have a caretaker work with them there rather than entering a facility—a recent shift in thinking.
