Los Angeles, (PressExposure) April 19, 2012 -- LiveWell Home Care, Inc., http://www.livewellhomecareinc.com , a private duty home care service provider based in Los Angeles, CA, is paving the way in 21st century home care solutions with its sponsorship of "Aging with Grace L.A.", a new web series addressing issues related to the senior community. "Aging With Grace L.A." is a three and a half minute program that will air weekly and include tips on healthy aging, chronic disease management, and advice on maintaining a vibrant, thriving, and fulfilling senior lifestyle.
"We have dedicated over 10 years learning about the process of healthy aging, and we are honored to sponsor this program so that more people can gain knowledge to help themselves and their loved ones age gracefully", explains LiveWell Home Care founder and CEO Dorika Beckett. "We look forward to being part of a revolution in our world to value our elders as a key part of healthy communities", Beckett added.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. population 65 and older is now the largest in terms of size and percent of the population. Four million of those seniors reside in California and that number is expected to grow to 12.5 million by 2040 as the aging baby boomers enter their senior years. "Aging With Grace L. A." was created in direct response to this increasing population, their desire to maintain independent lifestyles as they age, and their growing need for valuable information to help them do so within the comfort and safety of their own home.
As the costs of long term care steadily rises, Medicare and Social Security benefits dwindle, and wallets continue to be strained, affordable quality healthcare becomes an even greater issue of concern in the senior community. In the past, the only senior care options were to either move in with a family member or be placed into a nursing home. Today, there are several options to consider such as assisted living facilities, retirement communities, and in-home care. According to research by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the most preferred option for 90% of seniors is to continue living at home.
"We certainly understand the desire of seniors to remain home and our sponsorship of "Aging With Grace L. A." falls in line with our commitment to doing all we can to help them do so," stated LiveWell Client Care Manager, Joyce Ortile. "Our goal is not only to provide the best care givers, but to also educate our clients and our community about healthy aging while offering solutions to a growing need."
For 10 years, Southern Californians have trusted LiveWell Home Care to provide compassionate care for their loved ones. The company is excited to sponsor "Aging With Grace L.A." and invites anyone that would like to receive informative, educational, and at times entertaining information about senior care to watch this new web series. The first episode launched on April 18th, 2012 and can be viewed on the LiveWell website at http://www.livewellhomecareinc.com/videos.aspx.
