- Americans today are extremely mobile. We live in a fast-paced society and spend more time away from home than ever before.
- Grandchildren, children and loved ones are often spread across the country.
- Employees are retiring early and are on the road experiencing other cultures.
- People with medical conditions are seeking treatment in faraway medical centers.
