Is it the right time?
Yes! America’s aging population isn’t slowing down. Baby boomers started turning 65 in 2011 and nearly 25 percent do not go to a doctor according to the Commonwealth Fund’s 20th International Health Policy survey. This is partly why one in eight seniors in the United States have three or more chronic health care conditions and struggle with daily activities compared to seniors in other countries.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, from 2006 to 2016, the health care sector grew seven times faster than any other area of the economy because of the rapid increase in older Americans and the overall pressure it’s placed on the healthcare system to meet their needs. 3 in 4 seniors want to stay in their homes and maintain their independence as long as possible, according to the AARP.
Healthcare is a reliable industry that’s growing rapidly and senior care is an essential business that can withstand recessions and pandemics. A Place At Home continues to grow since beginning to franchise in 2017. New franchise owners experienced growth during the 2020 pandemic.
