Currently over 6 million seniors, aged 85 and up, are diagnosed with multiple chronic diseases making it difficult for them to perform day-to-day tasks. With this number rising every year, the need for additional volunteer caregivers is ever growing. To help address this problem, the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL) has taken steps to establish a National Volunteer Care Corp.
