Baby boomers and nursing home care

Nursing homes: brace yourself. The baby boomers will be flooding nursing home in the not that distant future. Although there are about 1.5 million Americans in nursing homes now, the number will dramatically increase as the baby boomer population begins to need care. It is anticipated that as many as half of all Americans who are now sixty-five years old or older will be admitted to a nursing home at least once in their lifetimes. By 2030, one in five will be elderly. By 2040, the number of nursing home patients will have reached an unprecedented six million. (1)

The sheer volume of baby boomers drives trends. Last summer I heard Ken Dychtwald, author of the Age Wave, speak last summer about the coming changes in our culture. He and his wife, Molly, and their research team have a firm grip on the trends. Read Riding the Age Wave: How Healthcare Can Stay Afloat
