It is true that there are more people getting old.....but there is less money to care for them as production in America is outsourced overseas and made more efficient/replaced by a result, many elderly will be forced to live at home or with children........and will not be able to afford nursing homes.  As fewer and fewer can afford nursing homes, expect more to go bankrupt.

In Africa, there are more people going hungry everyday.....but there is less and less money to buy higher and higher priced a result, many people eat less or die of starvation even though demand for good is going up

Your 40 years of experience as an analyst relied on America being the most prosperous country in the Industrial, welcome to the Digital Age where geography matters little.

I can see how senior care is a growing industry. It is also an industry that will always be needed. My grandmother is getting older and having a hard time taking care of herself. I think that she will need some extra care soon. Thanks for sharing this information!

It makes sense that the senior care industry is growing. There is always a need for people to help the elderly. I think it is such a great field to be in and they do such wonderful things to help seniors. I have a grandmother who is going to be needing some extra care soon and I think senior care is a great option!
