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." Seniors not only want to be self-sufficient - they wish to remain at home, where the surroundings are familiar and family is near.

An environmental initiative that has already been implemented in other parts of Virginia could make its way to Hampton Roads.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A trip to the drugstore or supermarket likely means you walk out with at least one plastic bag. However, circulation of those plastics raises concerns for some Hampton Roads locals.
Jim Deppe with Lynnhaven River NOW cited the impacts on marine life, agriculture and storm drainage systems, to name a few examples.
"Around here, there are so many watersheds that need to be cleared up of plastic bags," he said.
Deppe spoke in front of Virginia Beach City Council on Tuesday afternoon to get conversations going about a possible tax of five cents per disposable plastic bag.
“It’s framed as a tax, but we look at it as a fee, because you can’t avoid a tax. You can avoid this bag fee if you bring a reusable bag," said Deppe.
"I think that’s a great idea to do it," said Virginia Beach resident and shopper Stacy Monroe.
Monroe and Heather Wilber said they see the benefit.
“To help promote the eco-friendly thing we’re all going toward now. I personally have [reusable bags] in my trunk," said Wilber.
Wilber's reusable bags will come in handy even more if the initiative passes locally.
It's already taken effect this year in several other Virginia communities — including the City of Roanoke, Arlington and Fredericksburg.
Deppe said Fairfax County anticipates generating $1 million per year. Additionally, he touted Washington, D.C.’s longtime implementation, resulting in $19 million in a span of 10 years.
However, advocates stressed a measured 70% to 80% reduction in plastics in urban streams and waterways.
“During this whole gas problem we’re having, with high gas prices, that honestly five cents per bag isn’t that bad — especially to save the environment too," said Aaron Lock of Virginia Beach, who believes there is a lasting effect on the move.
“Either way, it’s kind of a win-win because I’m saving on plastic if I’m taking reusable bags over to the grocery store," Lock added. "And also, if I’m actually using plastic bags, then that’s five cents to the community.”
Leaders said one of the five cents per bag would go back to the vendor. The other four would be remitted to the city for environmental purposes.
If this initiative passes in Virginia Beach, impacted businesses include grocery stores, drugstores, convenience stores and larger retailers with any of the above.
This wouldn’t affect restaurants, food banks, farmers' markets or food trucks.
Other organizations, such as the Virginia Aquarium Foundation, Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Virginia League of Conservation Voters, back the initiative.
During the meeting on Tuesday, Councilman Guy Tower said he is in favor of passing the plastic bag fee. However, it is a matter the entire council needs to vote on.
13News Now made contact with Tower on Wednesday. He said he hopes to have council make its decision no later than July 5. Public comment will be received prior to the vote.
Meanwhile, Councilman John Moss asked city staff to review why the Commonwealth opted to let localities decide on fees, rather than banning disposable plastic bags altogether.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Dozens of cars filled the parking lot of the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater Tuesday morning, waiting for a helping hand.
The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore held a drive-thru food pantry for Virginia Beach residents. Many said boxes of free food will go a long way.
“This is an opportunity for people to have food on their table and make sure everybody eats,” said Virginia Beach resident Pamela Williams, who stopped by the amphitheater for the drive-thru.
These boxes of free food brought many a sigh of relief. Roughly 2,000 boxes of food filled with produce and canned goods filled up the vehicles that came.
Williams said was there to pick up food for a senior citizen she helps.
“Unfortunately in the situation that some of us and some of the senior citizens [are in], the food costs are so much,” she said.
Inflation was also weighing heavily on Deborah Brooks.
“Prices are high," Brooks said. "I’m on a fixed income. I recently lost my husband… So this means a lot, for me to be able to eat for the next month.”
She described the last couple of months as very rough, trying to care for herself and her grandchild.

Brooks said she had to make some changes in order to save money.
"Sometimes I just skip meals to make it work,” Brooks said.
She won't have to do that anymore, thanks to leaders at Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore who organized the pantry.
Foodbank CEO Christopher Tan said the impact of inflation has been bringing in new clients.
“So where inflation has now caused their food budget to shrink, gas is eating into their food budget," Tan said. "They may have never thought of using the foodbank before.”
Brooks said this is part of the start to getting back on her feet.
“It’s going to help a great deal. It’s very touching and moving," she said. "I hope one day I can pay it forward to somebody else.”
The foodbank is experiencing challenges of its own as the cost to get food goes up. Leaders with the foodbank said they don't want to pass the cost along. They said they are working to make sure the entire community is fed.

Women face unique challenges every day. The Acts Movement encourages and empowers women through faith, prayer, and love.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Lorraine Sellars said the name of her nonprofit, The Acts Movement, is inspired by a Bible verse.
Acts 4:32, specifically: "All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had." (NIV)
"I wanted [The Acts Movement] to be a safe place where you don't have to be afraid to share what's going on with you," Sellars explained.
The Acts Movement was created to be a safe haven for women to talk about their thoughts, dreams, ideas, fears, goals and insecurities without judgement.
"It started as a prayer ministry. And then from there, I wanted to expand," Sellars said.
"We have Bible studies, and we have socials that we gather," she said. "Sometimes there's tears and hugs and stuff like that, just to affirm that it's okay."
The nonprofit also provides support and resources to single moms.
"I have a connection there because I was a single mom," Sellars said. "I understand the struggles and sometimes the loneliness that goes with being a single mom, feeling deserted."
Every year, The Acts Movement hosts a statewide baby shower for new and expectant single moms.
"We're coming together to give [single moms] some of the things that they need, you know, [be]cause we're blessed to be a blessing," she said. "We're a sisterhood. We're all one. It doesn't matter about the color and all that. We're all one."
The group puts on other events throughout the year like conferences spiritual retreats. Sellars said the goal is to strengthen and encourage women to believe in themselves.
"Some of the things we go through, we think it's about us," said Sellars. "But it's really us being prepared for our purpose to do something else."
The Acts Movement's sixth statewide baby shower for new and expectant single moms will be on Saturday, July 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Immanuel Baptist Church in Chesapeake.
The event is free, but you have to register in advance. Call 757-403-4779 to sign up or to make a donation.
