There is certainly no shortage of articles, publications, and studies describing how individuals are living longer. Every indication is that older adults will outnumber younger adults by the end of this century. According to The Columbia Center on Aging at Columbia University, we are living in an era of unprecedented longevity. Ruth Finkelstein, Associate Director at the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center, wrote that “As one of the first generations to live in a society in which older people outnumber younger ones, the implications—social, financial, medical—are huge.” A study of the aging world population conducted by the United Nations in 2015 reported that individuals ages 60 and older comprised 0.9 billion of the world’s population and this number is expected to grow to 2 billion by 2050. Just last month, the Wall Street Journal reported that America is running out of family caregivers, just when it needs them most. At the crux of this issue is the reality that today’s caregivers are tomorrow’s older adults. Who will take care of them? Considering the unprecedented increase in the world’s aging population and the shortage of caregivers, we are experiencing an evident need not only in our community but globally. Families need help to provide quality care for their loved one. This is why organizations like United HomeCare exist and are so vital to our society. United HomeCare knows firsthand that most families want to keep their loved one at home, but are conflicted when faced with the realities and difficulties of caring for their parents and children while juggling a career in order to meet familial and financial obligations. If you are caring for an elderly parent or disabled adult, United HomeCare is here to help you; and, if we cannot help you, we will help you find the help you need. We believe it is our responsibility to help families in our community who are facing the challenges and realities of aging. For more information, please call 305.716.0710.
