This much is known: The current state of Medicare does not adequately support the needs of many of the aging baby boomers. For those who require a more hands-on approach to care, their coverage is considerably lacking.

Adults who are in need of assistance with basic daily activities such bathing and grocery shopping are left to their own devices, which often equates to the need for a family member to step in as a caregiver. While this can be an advantageous option, it can also lead to burnout in the long term. Thankfully, we, as home healthcare providers, are closing the gap as we offer options that allow for as much as 24-hour care.
