22 Aug Lang Furniture Serves the Needs of Seniors
The year 2030 will mark an important demographic milestone for the U.S. population. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2030, all baby boomers will be older than 65, and 1 in every 5 U.S. residents will be at least 65 or older. By the year 2035, there will be more people over 65 than under the age of 18.
Where will this growing population of seniors live?
Some of these seniors will stay where they are and “age in place,” taking advantage of home care services. Many others will move into retirement communities. To help house all of these new seniors, the retirement community industry is growing rapidly and forecasting accelerated growth in the coming decades. Today, all over the United States, new senior living communities are sprouting up. These communities include:
55+ Independent living – Independent living is for those seniors who want to live in a community of other “aging” individuals. Housing options can vary from apartment units to freestanding homes. Residents have no home maintenance or yardwork to worry about. Most independent living communities offer senior-focused amenities, activities and services, but do not have onsite medical care or nursing staff.
Assisted living – Designed for seniors who want or need help with some of the activities of daily living, assisted living communities provide the safety of 24-hour support, as well as access to medical care. Residents are usually encouraged to do what they can on their own, but generally group meals are provided, along with transportation to appointments.
Adult family homes – Licensed to care for non-related residents, adult family homes offer a more intimate living arrangement than larger housing options. Located in residential neighborhoods, these homes have been retrofitted to provide for the needs and safety of seniors. Adult family homes offer room, board and laundry and can also provide help with activities of daily living and personal care, as necessary.
Nursing homes – Nursing homes are for seniors who need a high level of assistance with many daily activities, including getting in and out of bed, eating, bathing, and dressing. Nursing homes provide a high level of medical care – a nurse or other medical professional is almost always on the premises.
