Statistics show that most baby boomers have a strong desire to remain independent as they age. These hardworking Americans are turning their noses up at the idea of spending their golden years in a strange nursing home. They have an unshakeable yearning to live life at home as long as possible. This factor, combined with advances in modern medicine that are helping seniors live longer, has set the stage for more home care franchise opportunities than ever before.
Research by the University of Alabama shows that more than seven million people in the U.S. need some form of home care. This fact is bolstered by the rising trend of "aging in place."

MEMPHIS, Tenn — Memphis food scientist Ali Manning shows just how fun it can be using everyday household items and food in a creative way.
Remember growing up and your parents saying, “Don’t play with your food?”
Well, you can, and it may be a good thing if you do.
“I encourage getting messy, for your hands to be dirty because it’s all a part of the learning experience,” said Manning, a Food Scientist, Umami Food Consulting founder, and Food Science 4 Kids creator.
“I tell people I play with food for a living. It’s true. I think play is a part of exploration and education,” said Manning.
She teaches healthy eating in a scientific way.
While setting up her mobile lab at Overton Park on Monday, Manning attracted some little food enthusiasts of her own.
“Children eat what parents provide for them," Manning said. "It’s up to the parents to make healthy choices. Right, for the little ones. In my classes, children learn about baking science, ice cream science. They understand where their food is coming from. They understand the importance of agriculture, food sources, and the food system."
She started Food Science 4 Kids during the pandemic hosting virtual demonstrations.
Now, she visits schools, libraries, and special events showing how different foods work such as using carbonated items to blow up a balloon or vinegar to create eruptions.
“Many of the things that we do can be pulled from the pantry,” said Manning. “Food is a science and people don’t necessarily always think about that. I’m excited to kind of give them a fresh perspective. I want to make sure that when the kids come to my class, they not only learn about where food comes from but they have a fun time and they’re able to apply it at home as well.”
The goal is to make healthy eating a habit.
“It’s a part of the culture and behavioral changes. Healthy children then become healthy teens and healthier adults…In food science education, I think little ones are able to understand that from the very beginning seeds grow your food. Your food then becomes products that you should consume. We should consume more healthy products,” said Manning.
Manning is also the author of the children’s book, “Can I Play with my Food?”

Through the summer it's going to cost many Mid-South drivers at least $50 to fill up their car.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — It's going to be hard to find gas under $4 per gallon this summer in Memphis.
Overnight, gas prices reached an all-time high in Memphis. Tuesday, AAA released that the average price of gas is $4.15 a gallon. That's an 18-cent jump from last week.
The national average is breaking record highs too. The national average is currently sitting at $4.36 per gallon. The previous record national average was $4.35 per gallon, which was recorded on March 10 after the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, according to GasBuddy.
GasBuddy predicts the price for gas will remain above $4 through November. This is because the price of crude oil is more than $100 a barrel whereas a year ago it cost about $65 dollars.
What's mostly driving crude oil prices is Russia's war in Ukraine, but there are other factors negatively impacting gas prices.
COVID lockdowns in China are raising concerns about softening demand for oil. In response, Saudi Arabia cut oil prices for buyers in Asia. That’s causing fluctuations in the global market.
There is also a truck driver shortage, which is making it difficult to get the fuel from the storage tank to the gas station. Right now it’s more expensive to deliver the fuel, and that’s reflected in the price of a gallon of gas.
To find gas prices near you click here to put in your location, or download the GasBuddy app.
Since GasBuddy doesn't expect gas prices to drop anytime soon, here are a few ways you can save at the pump.
Also through the GasBuddy App, you can enroll in their gasoline savings program which gives drivers a discount on every gallon of gas they will ever pump. Drivers can join Pay with GasBuddy for free and save on every gallon of gas they pump. Click HERE to learn more.
There are dozens of reward programs that allow drivers to earn points just for going about their daily lives. Below are a few programs you should look into.
Filling up at one of the warehouse clubs is a great way to save if you don’t mind the trade-offs, such as membership fees and long lines. Costco typically sells its gas about 20 cents below the market average. But keep in mind that you have to offset a $60 yearly membership fee.
#GasPrices in the U.S. are once again gaining upward momentum. The national average rose 13¢/gal in the last week, and is now just cents away from the current record high set back in March. ?? pic.twitter.com/0pYNFVYigz— GasBuddy (@GasBuddy) May 9, 2022

Memphis, TN, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival continues its march toward Washington with an in-person march and rally on May 23 in Memphis as the PPC demands that this nation adopt policies that lift from the bottom.
The Tennessee Poor People’s Campaign will lead a march and rally as part of a Mobilization Tour stop on the way to the Mass Poor People's & Low-Wage Workers' Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18th.
The program will be live-streamed here. The tour route starts at 4:30pmCT at Church Park (S. Fourth Street at Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive) to gather for the March to the National Civil Rights Museum (450 Mulberry St) for the 6pm CT Mass Meeting and Rally.
The national co-chairs, Bishop William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, will join poor and impacted testifiers from Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.
The priorities and demands of poor and low-wealth people from these three states will be front and center as they take on the lie of scarcity and put forward a Third Reconstruction agenda that demands, among other things: updating the poverty measure to reflect the real cost of living; enact a living wage and guarantee the right of all workers to form and join unions and guarantee quality health care for all.
All the states joining the Monday program suffer from high poverty and the lack of living minimum wage:
|State||PLI- Raw numbers||PLI - %||Black||Latinx||White|
|Tennessee||2.5 million||38%||58% or 631,000||66% or 263,000||37% or 1.8 million|
|Arkansas||1.2 million||43%||62% or 275,000||63% or 138,000||38% or 814,000|
|Mississippi||1.3 million||48%||65% or 708,000||66% or 54,000||39% or 649,000|
Our study tells us that poor and low-income people hold power at the ballot box when they vote. In the 2020 presidential election, poor and low-income people made up 39 % of voters in Tennessee. In Arkansas, the figure was 47%. Figures were not available for Mississippi at the time of the report.
Previous tour stops were: Cleveland, Madison, Wisconsin, Raleigh, North Carolina, New York City, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. Memphis is our last tour stop before our June 18th march and assembly.
“It is NOT just a day of action. It is a declaration of an ongoing, committed moral movement to 1) shift the moral narrative; 2) build power; and 3) make real policies to fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up.” — Bishop William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis. co-chairs of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival
The June 18th assembly in DC will be a generationally transformative declaration of the power of poor and low-wealth people and our moral allies to say that this system is killing ALL of us and we can’t…we won’t…we refuse to be silent anymore
