By 2030, the senior population in the U.S. will approach 72 million
Almost 54 million seniors today make up approximately 20% of the total U.S. population. As the baby boomer generation — born just after World War II to the mid 1960s (approximately between 1946 – 1965) — continues to age, approximately 10,000 will turn 65 every day for the next 20 years! The number of seniors forecast for the year 2030 is estimated to grow to about 72 million. Some research estimates that 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.
Seniors have an average life expectancy of 19 years after turning age 65. Sixty-seven percent of those seniors own their own homes, and according to AARP and others, 89% prefer to stay in them for the remainder of their lives, living independently for as long as possible. Non-medical in-home senior care is often the step between self-sufficiency and more serious medical or nursing home care. Despite a client’s struggles, familiar surroundings contribute to their longevity and quality of life. For this reason, the demand for non-medical in-home senior care is great.
“There is an abundance of clients out there,” Denver, Colorado, franchise owner Ryan Fensler says. “For anyone new looking at a franchise, I would advise you look at the stats for your area. Chances are, the demand is there.”
