Who Will Take Care of America's Seniors?
It's a question the Atlantic Monthly posted a few years ago to address the rising need for caregivers, who often suffer from burnout, stress, depression, and their own medical conditions. Be Part of Our Amazing Community
- According to AARP’s “The United States of Aging” survey, 90% of seniors want to remain in their homes as they age. The other 10% either prefer to be part of a social community or realize they need the help of a team.
- Hospitals are discharging patients more quickly, with the average length of stay now being 4.6 days, down from 7.3 days in 1980. That means, even after rehab, many people are coming home in need of ongoing assistance.
- The US Census reports that the number of people in America who are 65+ will reach 70 million by 2030, creating an enormous demand for assisted-living facilities, nursing homes and in-home health care.
- The senior care industry generates $300 billion a year, creating a healthy, competitive environment in various industries related to taking care of seniors.
