America is on the threshold of becoming the first ever mass geriatric society, with tens of millions of people living into their 80s, 90s. and beyond. Yet just as the need for caregivers is rising, the number of them is dwindling. 60% of those over 85 live in nursing home and it costs more money to be admitted in a nursing home that provides quality care.
