Given that 10,000 people turn 65 years old daily and that 13% of Americans are over age 65 now, the existing aging in place market is already sizable. By 2030, 18% of the population is expected to be 65 years old or more. Currently, Modernize helps more than 300,000 homeowners annually to reach contractors who can offer home accessibility enhancements.
Popular aging in place solutions include:
As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, occupancy in assisted-living and long-term care facilities is at a 15-year low. The in-home care market is expected to grow to $225 billion by 2024.
"In-home modifications help homeowners continue to live safely and independently," notes Gregg Hicks, vice president of Modernize.com. "Medical alerts, for example, are projected to reach more than $10 billion in sales by 2027. Now is the time for in-home care professionals to grow their businesses, and Modernize can help."
