Of the 7.2 million individuals who received home health services in 2000, 69 percent were older than 65. This proportion will increase as the impending "age boom" swells the ranks of the "oldest old," according to the Center for Home Care Policy (CHCP) and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY), which jointly launched a project focusing on the framework for geriatric home health.
