Kettering, OH (PRWEB) July 24, 2006
The U.S. Census in 2000 was a wake-up call for the long term care industry: Get ready for skyrocketing numbers of senior citizens, living longer and looking for services to help them during their later years.
As life expectancy for the average American continues to climb, the challenge of finding affordable, high-quality long term care faces more seniors and their families every day. With government shifting the expense of long term care to aging Americans and their families, finding the right caregiver is more of a concern than ever before. The problem is nationwide, and many are turning to the Internet to find solutions.
A wide array of long term care services is available, from in-home care to assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. Many in need of these services are trying to find the right balance of care and cost, and need guidance on how to look for it. In addition, professionals in the field want to offer their services to good employers, and agencies and facilities are looking for good employees. Experienced nurses and nursing assistants are seeking not only private duty assignments, but also opportunities with agencies that offer services to aging seniors in their communities.
