Homecare: an Industry that Matters

The need for quality home care is growing fast as our population ages, with more seniors wanting trusted alternatives to nursing homes.

In fact, according to the AARP, most seniors wish to be taken care of and age with dignity in the comfort of their own home. So, investing in this growth industry not only makes business sense, it's a way to give back to the community and be involved in an industry that really matters.

Answered: Top Facts on the Industry

Homecare is one of the fastest-growing healthcare industries in the U.S. according to IBIS World, a leading US-based market research firm.

In a recent 'HomeCare Providers in the US' report, it was noted that "Homecare saves patients billions of dollars a year by treating them in their homes instead of in hospitals."

It also states that “an aging population, the prevalence of chronic disease, growing physician acceptance of homecare, medical advancements and a movement toward cost-efficient treatment options from public and private payers have all fostered industry growth.”

By the year 2030, the baby boomer generation will all have reached retirement age. One in eight of those elderly adults living at home will require long-term care, with conditions ranging from diabetes to dementia. 

"The most telling issue in Western HealthLinks is that 75 percent of the interventions required to avoid hospital visits are not health related. These are typically “social determinants,” relating to areas such as social care support and measures to avoid isolation or housing." Deloitte Insights, 2020

"A 2018 AARP survey of adults shows that 3 out of 4 adults age 50 and older want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. Baby Boomers are driving a significant and lasting shift in the age distribution of our country. Ten thousand Baby Boomers turn 65 years old every day, and by 2030, 18% of the U.S. population will be age 65 or older (compared to 13% today). This will create a growing appetite for solutions that enable older adults to age in place. The U.S. home care market is expected to grow from $100B in 2016 to $225B by 2024. As entrepreneurs, there may be a unique opportunity for technology to close the health care gap and actually provide better services." Forbes, Aug 2020.

"The statistics are brutal—and continuing to rise. An estimated 40% of the approximately 130,000 deaths from coronavirus in the United States occurred in residents or employees of nursing homes and long-term care facilities. One in five such institutions has reported at least one death. And even those left untouched have closed for visitors, leaving residents isolated. One senior in lockdown in a nursing home was quoted by the Philadelphia Inquirer as saying “I feel like I am on death row.” Home Care Mag, Aug 2020.

"Those of us in the industry know that home health care is the key to addressing so many of the broader health care industry’s issues. More than that, it’s what health care consumers want. Data we recently captured with The Harris Poll revealed that 67% of Americans have thought differently about their own health care options or those of a loved one as a result of the pandemic, and 65% agreed that they would have considered home health care as an alternative to a past hospital stay if they knew it was an option.

We’re already playing an integral role in the country’s response to and recovery from COVID-19, and we can play an even larger role once this barrier is removed." Home Health Care News, Dec 2021.

The number of home health care jobs in the U.S. is expected to spike in the coming decade, as one of the 30 occupations that are expected to account for almost half of all new jobs created. Home Health Care News.

Overall employment of home health and personal care aides is expected to jump 34 percent from 2019 to 2029, according to the U.S. Labor Department.
