Improving Day Care Facilities Fuelling Demand for Elder Care Services: Persistence Market Research

Published On : Mar 29, 2022

The elder care services market netted sales worth US$ 1.23 Bn in 2021, and Persistence Market Research projects the market to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period (2022-2031). Growing burden of chronic diseases amongst the elderly and their need for constant support & management are boosting demand for elder care services, globally.

Elder care service providers cater to all the medical as well as physical & mental needs of elderly patients who avail their services. Discharged geriatric patients from hospitals who need help in managing their day-to-day activities and healthcare opt for these services, either at institutions or through home-based care providers. The availability of such day care institutions is advantageous to both, family caregiver and patients. For the caregivers, they can enjoy some respite from caregiving, while for patients, they are able to enjoy the companionship of patients with similar age. A driving factor of such day care facilities is the overall cost of the setup, which is comparatively less than hospitalization.

Increase in life expectancy has resulted in a growing geriatric population over time. With this the burden of diseases such as terminal illnesses, dementia, and other serious disabilities also increases. The need for aged care is focused on controlling chronic disorders and management. During the latter stages of Alzheimer's disease or dementia, a patient needs supervision throughout the day. Furthermore, demand for specialized elder care facilities is driven by an increase in the standard of living, which necessitates products and services tailored to the elderly.

New market entrants have numerous opportunities for growth due to the continuously rising demand for elder care services, high disposable income, development of healthcare facilities, and the developing mind-set of consumers, globally. Key players in this industry are focused on providing personalized care to increase their consumer base, thereby expanding their business globally.
