Do you know the growth rate of Senior care?

The senior care services industry will experience significant growth over the next several decades.

Generally, Americans 75 years and older are the target population for seniors housing, but early 80s is when many potential clients begin to move into such facilities. So while the market appears to be in for a wait to see a major boost in business, the focus remains on the baby boomers.

Population Trends and Demand Drivers

Today, there are 40 million adults age 65+ in the U.S. What’s more, this population is expected to nearly double to 70 million over the next 30 years. With an increasing average life expectancy for Americans reaching over 75 years of age, the need for senior care will continue to escalate.

First, call and speak to one of our friendly team members who will answer your questions and schedule a risk-free tour (please note – we are currently not doing in-person tours due to COVID-19, but happy to answer any questions you may have).

Once agreed our community is a good fit, we will schedule a move in date and ensure a smooth transition for your family. We are here to help however we can!
