Provider of personal home care leaps ahead with 91% revenue growth in Q2
There is no denial that the world’s population is aging as approximately 11,000 people per day are turning 65 in the US alone. The average US life expectancy increased from 68 years in 1950 to 79 years in 2013 and is expected to continue. Longer life expectancy and the aging baby boomers, has the potential to make the US home care industry one of the fastest growing industries in the US, currently a $89.2 billion market.
