More than 7.6 million Americans suffering from acute illnesses or living with chronic health conditions receive in-home care, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This number is even greater when you consider the number of people receiving informal care from family members, which may occur in up to 20% of U.S. households.

Most of these individuals receiving in-home care would otherwise be living in assisted living or other long-term care facilities when, in reality, they just want to stay in their own home. When families can't meet the needs of those who need care, they may choose to use various types of home care services.
