Date:4/17/2008

WASHINGTON, April 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Larry Minnix, President & CEO, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) on the Senate Special Committee on Aging hearing, 'Caring for Our Seniors: How Can We Support the Frontlines?'

"We commend the Special Committee on Aging for examining the workforce issues that our nation must address to meet the needs of aging society.

"It's no secret that caregiving is at the heart of quality. As we enter the 'Era of the Caregivers,' it is time that legislators take on the challenges, as well as the opportunities, we encounter in caring for our country's must vulnerable citizens. Investing in workforce education and development programs, providing incentives for those who pursue careers in geriatrics, offering more competitive wages and benefits to direct caregivers and encouraging technology applications in caregiving are all ways to move forward the vision of quality in aging services as an automatic public expectation.

"We urge the Committee members to create legislation that will advance solutions to the issues raised at the hearing. Working together, we can support caregivers at all levels as they provide the services people need, when they need them, in place they call home."
