Listening to NPR last week, I was interested to hear about a program in Vermont that offers an alternative to nursing homes. Structured similar to foster care systems, this service matches people in need of care with those willing to provide that care in their personal homes.

As aging populations increase, especially in areas currently lacking in providers of such care, we might see more options such as this popping up throughout the country.
