There is no doubt that the demand for Caregiving services has increased massively in the last few years. The highly trusted Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says this industry will see the addition of about 1.3 million new jobs by 2020. By 2020, BLS says the industry will witness a growth of about 69% in the total number of people it employs. The trend is quite remarkable since the average growth for all other industries by 2020 is expected to be around 14%.
The reasons responsible for such impressive growth figures include the following:
Increased need for Caregiving services is one of the main factors behind the growth. Today, better health care and more services are available to people with disabilities. Consequently, these individuals (and their families) realize the importance of staying in safe, secure surroundings where they receive quality care. The trend has spiraled over into the Caregiving industry where the developmentally delayed receive excellent care from professionals.
The quality of services offered at Caregiving agencies has also improved substantially over the years. Improved quality has helped increase the growth and demand for these services significantly. The quality is good and the clients can enjoy the freedom of living in their own home. Families, which are too busy with daily chores and income-generating activities to give the disabled the much-needed attention, can now find solace in the fact that their loved ones are guaranteed quality care.
