According to a study by AARP, one of three baby boomers is currently unmarried. This number has increased by 50% since 1980.

Here at Mednovations, we understand the risks of not seeking medical care when needed and aim to make doctor appointments easier for this aging population.
In the 1930s, physician house calls were a regular part of medicine, but over time, these types of services have slowly disappeared until recently. A 2014 study, by the American Geriatrics Society, found that home health visits to Medicare patients saved 17 percent by reducing the patients need to go to the hospital or nursing home for medical treatments. Over the past few years, these types of home healthcare models have been effectively used and tested.
