Finding the Right Person to Care for Your Loved One
The New Trend of Aging at Home
While long-term care facilities like nursing homes have typically been a staple for aging adults, that trend is starting to change. This can be attributed to many factors, but for most families, it is all about what is going to provide the most comfort for their loved one. This trend is also fueled by the fact that we’re simply living longer here in the United States. The U.S. Census Bureau states that the 65 and older population in the U.S. in 2019 was 54 million. The Bureau expects that number to swell to nearly 95 million by 2060.
Home Care Workers
The growth in number of seniors living longer and happier lives at home, with assistance, has led to many options when it comes to in home caregivers. Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute in New York estimates the number of workers providing in-home care to be around 2.4 million. That 2.4 million represents more than a 50% increase since 2010. When deciding on on which type of in-home caregiver to choose, you’ve got many options. The AARP has a list outlining the various types of home care workers. General aides, licensed nursing assistants, skilled nursing providers, and registered nurses are just a few routes to go. Ultimately it is a family decision that should be based upon the needs of your loved one. At Arosa we’re proud to offer skilled caregivers for all sorts of needs.
