The U.S.' National Home Healthcare Industry Infrastructure May Not Be Prepared for Aging Population

February 9, 2018

Bloomberg News (2/9, Kim, 2.9M) reported on the home care industry in a 4,100-word article. The piece highlights projections that 80 million people will be over 65 by 2050, compared with 50 million today. The article also discusses the growth in the number of home health agencies, the “aide shortage,” government programs’ spending on home healthcare, and the work conditions for home healthcare workers. The article observes, “As the first wave of 76 million baby boomers turns 70, our long-term-care infrastructure will bend from the strain.”
