Between 2000 and 2030, it is estimated that the population of people over 65 in the United States will double, reaching 72.1 million. The number of people needing long term and home care services will also increase. Citizen groups, including seniors, the disabled, and home care providers, are organizing to ensure adequate support and funding for the needs of elderly and disabled people.
