A large number of seniors in the baby boomer generation are aging in place rather than move to a nursing home or assisted living facility. This means that the demand for caregivers and in-home care services will continue to grow across the country. Families often find it difficult to provide the proper care to their aging loved ones, so our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care will provide personal care at home to seniors and help them maintain their independence.
