Are in-home caregiver shortages causing issues for seniors and their families?
As people age, the shortage of home caregivers is increasing. There are few facilities with affordable price points, and most seniors do not like to leave their homes. Some seniors hire in-home caregivers; some do not know how to deal with challenges and search for assistance. Within ten years, the number of people above age 65 will increase, facing a shortage of caregivers. In the future, one of the children might have to take the role of a caregiver to care for the older adult.
