The aging of the population, combined with the prevalence of two-earner households of the children of the aged, creates a need for services for seniors. This aging of society brings with it new challenges for individuals, families, and entire communities. This phenomenon creates an unprecedented business opportunity.
Revenues for the elder care services industry are expected to grow to $319.5 billion, with home-based services to grow the fastest. Advances will be driven largely by demographic changes in light of increasing life expectancy, which is contributing to the rising number of individuals in the older population segments. Growth is further boosted by the large, post-World War II “baby boomer” generation entering their retirement years. Baby boomers hold $13 trillion assets or roughly 50 percent of United States’ asset base. The first of these baby boomers turn 65 at a rate of 8,000 people per day.
Additionally, the baby boomer generation has begun to reach the age range of elevated risk for Alzheimer’s and other dementias. As the number of older Americans grows rapidly, so too will the numbers of new and existing cases of Alzheimer’s disease. By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million. This generation is now driving the market for senior care.
