According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, the projection of the elderly population is much greater than that of the nation as a whole. Approximately 16 percent of the Kentucky population is over 60 years old. This percentage is rapidly increasing as the baby boomer generation gets older. With this extensive population increase comes the need to protect and provide for the elders who deserve to live comfortably as they head into their golden years.
With the elderly population increase, issues such as retirement, financial security, health maintenance, long-term care, community, planning, grief, loss, and the impact on the workforce and economy need to be at the forefront of government planning, the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services suggests.
Kentucky is also home to an enormous trucking industry providing about one out of fourteen jobs for the state population with more than 20,000 trucking companies according to the Kentucky Motor Transportation Association. It is important for truck drivers, trucking companies, and the loading company to adhere to strict state and federal guidelines in order to ensure safety on the roads. When a truck accident occurs, it can be devastating for all parties involved, and you will need someone who can navigate the legal aspects of the accident.
