Personal and Home-Care Aides
Let’s say your mom, now 82 years old, is showing signs of physical impairment. You weigh the options. Mom could move to an expensive nursing home, she could share a common roof with you for the first time in 40 years, or you could hire a home-care aid. The rising popularity of seeking in-home care for those you love helps explain why the personal and home-care aide industry is expected to double in size by 2016.
Home-care aides typically work with elderly, disabled, or ill people to help them stay in their homes rather than having to move to a health facility.
