By 2030, the senior population in the U.S. will approach 72 million
The demand for the non-medical, in-home senior care that Touching Hearts at Home franchises offer is great now and will only continue to grow over the next couple of decades. Almost 54 million seniors today make up approximately 20% of the U.S. population, and that number is projected to approach 72 million by 2030. There’s never been a better time to become a franchise owner with the Touching Hearts at Home senior care franchise. We are expanding rapidly across the nation this year.
Seniors have an average life expectancy of 19 years after they turn 65. Sixty-seven percent of seniors own their own homes, and according to AARP and others, 89% prefer to stay in them, living independently for as long as possible. And familiar surroundings contribute to their longevity and quality of life. Non-medical, in-home senior care is often the step between self-sufficiency and more serious medical or nursing home care. For this reason, the demand for such care is great.
“Now is a great time to invest in a home care business,” says Renae Peterson, CEO and founder of Touching Hearts at Home. “Baby boomers are aging, and the demand is there. It’s not difficult finding clients because everyone wants to stay in their home, and often all they need is a little extra help. Touching Hearts at Home meets that need perfectly.”

As the baby boomer generation — born from just after World War II to the mid 1960s (1946–1965) — continues to age, approximately 10,000 will turn 65 every day for the next 20 years! Some research estimates the global home health care sector may grow from $180 billion in 2014 to $300 billion in 2020 — that’s an increase of 67% in six years.
