This population aging has also made an unprecedented impact on our health care system. Namely, the growth of older population in the United States has caused certain changes in terms of supply of and demand for health care workers. Elly Kleinman, Americare Companies chief executive points out that as the population is aging, there are more retired people and reduced working hours, which eventually could affect, and even decrease the supply of healthcare workers. In addition to that, since older adults make a large part of the health care services, which again brings us back to the fact that, the demand for health care services will continue to grow. In order to serve the needs of the older adults, the U.S. needs to maintain its supply and demand on a variety of health care professionals.
For over 35, Elly Kleinman, Americare founder, has been serving the needs of New Yorkers, providing them with a wide range of healthcare services, including home healthcare and rehabilitation services, international nurse recruitment, encompassing professional, paraprofessional and ancillary support services. The shift from acute to chronic illnesses along with the growing shortage of health care workers like nurses and paraprofessionals will have a major impact on health care delivery. That’s why healthcare providers should start focusing more on chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, osteoporosis, and heart diseases, and change their style from one-time interventions to ongoing management of multiple diseases and disabilities.
