“Eldercare is a growing issue affecting seniors, their children and their children’s employers. Today there are more than 40 million Americans who are 65 or older. By 2050, there will be more than 70 million -an astounding increase in just a few short decades,” said Jane Niederberger, president, My Health Care Manager, Inc. “Our program helps simplify what can be a complex, expensive and intimidating health care system - especially if you are older or if you are caring for a parent.”

SCANS™/Care Advisor was selected from seven finalists in the category.
