Home Care matters to our community in so many ways – now more than ever. A quick look at demographics and the constant changes in the health care delivery system point to an expanding and necessary role for home health care.
With the right services in place, regardless if it’s full-time care or companionship for those that want to stay in their own homes longer, data shows that people stay healthier, enjoy life, and recover faster from hospitalizations in their own home.
“Home is where the heart is.”
Home is where people want to grow old in a safe and gracious way. Regardless of your age, it is the preferred place when anyone faces an illness or difficult medical challenges.
Home care matters because Massachusetts is growing older at a pace faster than the national average. According to the Boston Globe (12/2015), Massachusetts is the nation’s 15th most populous state with nearly 6.8 million people.
The aging demographics, according to the census bureau includes:
|45 to 54 years||873,353||13.8|
|55 to 59 years||310,002||4.9|
|60 to 64 years||236,405||3.7|
|65 to 74 years||427,830||6.7|
|75 to 84 years||315,640||5.0|
|85 years and over||116,692||1.8|
Those demographics, coupled with the fact that the aging population is experiencing longer life, is challenged because the longer lives are often with multiple chronic illnesses.
The demand for quality at-home personal care services is growing. We’ve said it for years: The “baby-boomer” generation finds itself attending to aging parents just as their own health care needs are changing. Caring family members need a break, too!
