ABOUT THE ASSISTED LIVING INDUSTRY

The U.S. nursing home and assisted living industry includes about 75,000 establishments with combined annual revenues of about $175 billion.

About one million Americans live in assisted living facilities. This number is expected to double by 2030. With the current costs to live in an assisted living facility at $3,000 to $4,500 per month, financing options like reverse mortgages are being used to fund assisted living homes.

Baby boomers represent more than 70% of all the financial assets in the United States. They want communities that remind them of home rather than institutions. With this in mind amenities being offered in the future may be more upscale like commercial kitchens, beauty salons, spas, indoor pools and pet friendly communities.
