Our country is facing a crisis. It’s summed up in two numbers: 5 and 50. They stand for the 5 percent of patients who account for 50 percent of rising health care costs that threaten to cripple federal government and states. The answer to the problem is also summed up in numbers released by the Department of Labor this year. The latest data from the DOL shows that home care has boomed as America ages and the baby boomers begin entering their golden years. Registered nurses, generic home health aides, here and personal care aides are among the top five occupations projected to see the largest increase in jobs by 2020 as more people need their services than ever before.
