While there is a market for rapid expansion, by taking a measured growth approach, we can maintain our commitment to quality at every level and to every family
Atlanta (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
In only five short years, AmeriCare (http://www.americarealliance.com), a national home-based caregiving company, surpassed one million hours of caregiving, a major milestone in the service-based industry. Founded in 2003, the company is experiencing record growth as demand for its quality, flexible, caregiving services is expanding from America's aging population and the emerging "Sandwich Generation" - those adults that must care for aging parents and children of their own.
"We believe that this milestone is a clear reflection of our dedication to building a caregiving - not a caretaking - company that reflects an unparalleled commitment to quality, flexible caregiving services," said Debra Reis, president of AmeriCare. "While we are proud of reaching one million hours of caregiving service, what's important is that every one of those hours was in support and care of an individual, a family in need." AmeriCare currently provides caregiving services in California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. It recently opened new franchises in Maryland, New Jersey and Tennessee.
Nationwide more than 34 million Americans personally care for a family member and with the population aging the number of families in need of caregiving services is expected to continue its rapid rise. Within this group, a new definition has emerged defining the people who must care for an aging loved one while raising their own children. The 'Sandwich Generation' includes the estimated 16 million Americans. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number in this new generation is about to explode: In 25 years, there will be 60 million Americans between the ages of 66 and 84, many of them needing full- or part-time care.
AmeriCare provides families the option to keep loved ones in the comfort of their home while providing quality caregiving to seniors, new parents and those recovering from surgery. Families can create customized care plans and choose from a selection of quality, licensed, pre-screened caregivers to create the best match to meet their needs. "While there is a market for rapid expansion, by taking a measured growth approach, we can maintain our commitment to quality at every level and to every family," said Reis.
