There is a huge shift taking place in the age of Americans, as steady and certain as the ticking of a clock. By the year 2030 over 71 million Americans will be aged 65 or older. In Michigan Volunteers of America is already seeing the effects of the aging of our citizens. It places increased demands on every aspect of Michigan’s system of providing elder care, from hospitals to assisted living and home health care services.
