Social workers needed in increasing numbers to help navigate elder care options

While caring for multiple elders, I was aided by social workers on several levels. One social worker helped our family make the decision to hire in-home care for a few hours a day to care for my uncle, as none of the family could be with him as much as was needed. He was able to afford the care help, and grew very attached to his in-home caregivers.
