Americans move based on where they find work, more so now than at any time in the past. More often then not, the place where someone's parents lives is not in the same community where their children live, putting more and more miles between seniors and their family support system.
The result is that when parents start to need assistance with their activities of daily living, families often have to travel long distances to provide care. When this is the case, often the only choice for the family is to find other options, such as senior care, for their parents.
