You’re in the right place at the right time – more than 10,000 people turn 65 in the United States every day! Members of the "boomer” generation have created new opportunities in every stage of their lives and as they age this dynamic will not change. Boomers have an overwhelming desire to remain independent and, combined with advances in medicine, they are setting the stage for unprecedented growth in home health care and assisted living communities.
40.2 million people in the USA (13% of the population) are 65 or older.
The US population of 65 and older will double during the next 30 years - by 2040, one in five Americans (about 81.2 million people, or 20% of the population) will be 65 or older!
The 85+ population is expected to grow even faster, increasing nearly 150% during the next 30 years, from 5.7 million in 2010 to 14.2 million in 2040!
About 80% of seniors have at least one chronic health condition; 50% have at least two.

ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION...
Health care – the most dynamic, recession resistant market for decades to come!
Health care is the largest industry in the United States, and seniors are the fastest growing segment of the population. More than 10,000 people turn 65 in the USA every day, and this trend will continue for decades to come.
Approximately 7.6 million people in the United States require some form of home health care, according to research published by the University of Alabama (UAB). And more and more people are determined to "age in place,” maintaining the dignity and respect of a self-sufficient lifestyle. Always Best Care provides the help they need to accomplish their goals.
The trend toward community-based services as opposed to nursing home placement was formalized with the Olmstead Decision (July, 1999), in which the Supreme Court upheld the right of individuals to receive care in the community as opposed to an institution whenever possible.
Always Best Care has a business model proven to stand strong through tough economic times with highly regarded and reputable in-home care, assisted living finder and skilled home health care services. Franchise partners not only engage in the entrepreneurial lifestyle, they truly make a difference in the lives of others.
As a result, over the past two years Always Best Care has been one of the fastest growing senior care franchise systems in the USA, and one of the fastest growing franchises overall, according to Entrepreneur magazine.
"Health care jobs will increasingly move to non-hospital settings."
"The demand for many health care jobs will continue to escalate."
