"We face a bit of an uphill battle and must overcome some challenges. One challenge is a lack of reporters dedicated to the aging beat. With newspapers and magazines struggling financially, it’s odd that these news outlets would shift away from their most avid audience—older Americans. Even stranger are the ads in these publications—for senior services, medical devices, retirement and assisted living communities."
Charlie Young, CEO of SYNERGY HomeCare, talks with Bonnie on Bloomberg News Radio about the increasing demand of home care.

This increase in demand has turned into an increase in a need for more caregivers all around the country.

"After fleeing civil war in Liberia with his parents and eight siblings in 1997, Felix Gbee felt he owed a duty to his new country when he joined the U.S. Army after the 9/11 attacks. He carried the feeling forward, and has just opened a Synergy HomeCare franchise in Leesburg, Virginia."
"Most people understand that the Baby Boomer generation has defined American life since it emerged post-WWII. It grew to become the largest, most powerful and wealthiest generation in American history—a formidable segment of society that consistently changed American behavior."

"You know, I think that diversity is one of the keys to our greatness as a country. I think that the ability to celebrate all different voices that we have in this country and the opportunities that we have now in front of us, give us an opportunity for real change."
"As we are entering into a new normal and people are becoming more comfortable living and operating in their daily lives, in the COVID era, we're seeing that need for companion care coming back pretty strong."
