It is very common and often necessary for elderly members of our society to move into nursing homes or long-term care facilities upon reaching the point in life that they either require constant nursing care or have problems performing daily self care activities.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services at least 70 percent of people over the age of 65 will require some long-term care services at some point in their lives.
