Senior Care Testing Services

In the United States, by the year 2030, the aging population of Baby Boomers (born 1946 through 1964) will number nearly 61 million people aged 66-84. In this segment of the population, many will reside in various long-term communities such as independent living, assisted living and memory care. Recognizing the need for and understanding the challenges of testing in these facilities, PCR-Dx health care professionals created a Senior Care Division to focus on the specialized healthcare needs of these residents.
