Senior Concierge Service is Bringing Balance and Sanity to Baby Boomers Caring for Multi-Generational Families
Bend, OR, September 07, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The Pew Research Center estimates that 47% American adults aged 40-65 are currently raising a child and supporting one or both parents at the same time. This so called "Sandwich Generation" are feeling the crunch of supporting a multigenerational family. They face unique challenges in caring for their loved ones and often feel burdened.
The Senior Concierge industry is on the rise because a concierge can help bring balance and sanity back into the lives of caregivers. A Senior Concierge can lighten the load of family caregivers by providing welfare checks and companionship to senior parents, help with home management, errands, pet care, reminder services and much more.
Wendy McInnis-Hall has developed a new business, Life Tree Personal Services, LLC, located in Bend, Oregon with the aim of relieving some of the burden faced by baby boomers in this dual caregiver role and empower seniors who want to continue living at home.
McInnis-Hall states, "Seniors feel secure and happy when they have a local concierge available to assist with needs that arise. Sometimes, minor adaptations to the home environment and scheduled concierge assistance can made a huge difference in helping loved ones maintain independence."
Life Tree Personal Service LLC and other senior concierge service businesses have been sprouting up across the country lately and are just one of a few ways people are working to meet a huge demand for services that will be created as the country’s 77 million baby boomers get older.
