85% of Senior Retirees Prefer to Receive Care from Their Own Home
According to a new study conducted by Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, 85% of senior retirees age 50 and over say that they prefer to receive care from their homes, if they need long-term help. 10% of seniors prefer assisted living communities, while only 4% of seniors said that they would prefer to receive care in the home of a family member.
Data also shows that residents of nursing homes have declined over the past decade, while seniors receiving care from their homes or choosing assisted living communities have significantly increased.
Because about 3/4 of people over the age of 85 have trouble completing daily tasks and activities, more seniors in the U.S are utilizing the benefits of professional in-home care services from companies like Always Best Care.
In fact, more than half of seniors age 75 and older are living alone, making non-medical home care beneficial for both health and social needs, as caregivers are able to offer companionship that seniors would otherwise not have.
The demand for trusted senior care services is increasing, as is the need for motivated professionals to open home care businesses. To learn more about opening a senior care franchise with Always Best Care, don’t hesitate to download your very own copy of our FREE franchising eBook today!
