U.S. Celebrates National Home Care and Hospice Month in November
Date:10/22/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Val J.

"Seventy-eight million Baby Boomers will soon hit retirement age, and a large percentage of them will begin to need help to remain independent in their own homes," said Halamandaris. "At this point, there is no Federal program that helps much with these needs, which also affect as many as eight million more persons with disabilities who are younger than age 65. The needs are vast, and we don't have anywhere near the number of people providing home care services that we need."
