More than ever before, seniors are choosing to remain in their own homes as they age instead of going into a retirement center or nursing home. And because the number of seniors in this country is projected to increase dramatically now that the first Baby Boomers are retiring, senior in-home care promises to become one of the fastest-growing businesses around. The senior care market is estimated to be a $75 billion dollar annual industry!
Key Market Drivers:
- 10,000 seniors turning 65 everyday
- 90 % of seniors prefer to stay in their homes as they age
- Recession proof industry
- Historically a private pay industry, but now Medicare Advantage insurers are approved to offer Home health aides and transportation services. This announcement potentially assists 22 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans with an additional funding source for long term care.
