The senior care industry is booming and the need for personal care aides is on track with the Bureau of Labor Statistics' growth prediction of 70 percent between 2010 and 2020 -- which is significantly faster than the average for all occupations.

It doesn't really matter why CAREGivers care, it just matters that they do.
