Lillie’s Circle Of Care supports elderly clients in their homes instead of in hospitals or nursing homes, fostering their independence and keeping them happier and safe in their own homes. Home health care can include broad care given by skilled medical professionals, including skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Home health care can also include skilled, non-medical care, such as medical social services or assistance with daily living from a highly qualified home health aide. As the Medicare program describes, home health care is unique as a care setting not only because the care is provided in the home, but the care itself is “usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective” as care given in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.

Home Health Provider
The In-Home Care Provider industry is among the fastest-growing healthcare industries in the United States. There is a growing need for Home Health Providers due to the surge of the Baby Boomer population. Baby Boomers are defined as people born in the Post-World War II era from 1946 – 1964.
About 77 Million Americans were born in this time period. On January 1, 2011, the oldest Baby Boomers turned 65. Every day for the next 19 years about 10,000 more will turn 65. As the Baby Boomers get older, the rates of Alzheimer’s disease will climb.
The risk of Alzheimer’s disease increases with age, to nearly 50 percent among those older than 85. Between 2018 and 2050, more than 28 million Baby Boomers in the U.S. will develop Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
