Home-Care Patients Who are Aging Solo: Are you Prepared?
Home health care professionals often count on interacting and making care decisions with the patient’s family member. This often includes a caring son or daughter, or a spouse. But according to demographic research and the aging professionals, that is not necessarily going to be the home-care environment situation going forward.
One-in-three Baby Boomers falls under the category of separated, divorced, widowed, or never married. This means that millions of people are aging solo in their own homes, without the presence of family caregivers. This home-care environment will have a significant impact on the home-health care industry. When there are no family members to supply you with answers, when there are no family members to offer you direction and support, you will soon find out that it is no longer business as usual.
