A recent article from Home Health Care News, entitled, Aging In Place Services More Important Now Than Ever, (drawing data from a larger detailed report,) offered three statistics that should be of note to folks seeking to start or to grow a home care agency:
By 2030, more than 70 million Americans will be age 65 and older.
Nearly 90% of adults in this age group want to age in place.
Over 70% of Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) provide what’s known as “diversion programs” to keep people living in their homes longer.
For some of you these stats may already be well known, while for others, they may be new to you. In either case, a question probably occured to you, along the lines of: "Great info, what are some next steps?"
