Providing quality care, programs, resources and support for America's aging population has become an exceptional challenge in the 21st century – and nowhere more so than in Philadelphia, which has a larger percentage of seniors than any of the 20 largest cities in the nation. As a result, Philadelphia offers a diversity of career opportunities in these fields.
