About Us

A growing need

According to the U.S. Census bureau, the number of Americans over 65 has risen by a factor of 11 during the last century and 1 in 5 Americans are expected to be senior citizens by the year 2050.  Advances in medicine, safety and nutrition have all contributed to the growth of this population.  With this growth comes new challenges for families and individuals.
