His Home Instead Senior Care office is part of an international franchise company whose professional CAREGivers go into the homes of seniors to help them with their non-medical needs such as companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, errands and shopping.

"To keep pace with this projected demand for caregivers, our company would need to double its care force in just three years, according to our research," Bidwell explained. "On a positive note, these projections will mean job opportunities for Florida workers hit hard by the economy, providing a flexible part-time option for additional income or a new career in a fulfilling job field - caring for older adults.
