It’s disheartening for seniors to lose their independence. Nearly 65 years after the end of World War II, the Baby Boomer generation has entered its silver years and not all is golden. In the United States, about 3 million people work in direct-care jobs, mainly with the elderly, as nursing assistants, home health aides, and personal care aides. San Diego County has more than 330,000 individuals who are 65 years of age and older. Within the next 20 years, that number, according to SANDAG, is expected to grow to about 741,362 individuals, a growth of 125 percent.
