The increasing middle-income seniors aging community will continue to need the level of healthcare and housing provided by senior housing and home care services

Private-pay senior housing and healthcare providers are on today’s research and​​ quantified future middle-income aging numbers. They are actively proposing new financing models, business strategies, and public policy approaches that don’t leave the middle-income community behind. 

Yet, these proposed models and strategies could be the proper steps and give a new direction; projected senior-middle-markets will not have enough to pay for facility-based care that annual care-cost is estimated to be up to 40,000-60,000 and about 3,500/5,000 a month. 

Today, many middle-income seniors rely on retirement savings to pay for housing and healthcare needs. Yet, by 2029, 14.4 million middle-income seniors will need to rely on family members to financially support their housing and healthcare needs. 


Top 3 solutions to consider when planning for your loved one’s future long-term healthcare-housing needs: 

#1 Do not panic. Though these future projections paint a clear picture of how your loved one may not be able to access healthcare and housing provided by senior housing and home care services, there is always a way to prepare for future long-term healthcare and housing needs.
