Who Are America’s Middle Income Seniors and How Can We Care for Them?
The Forgotten Middle is a fast-growing and significant demographic group of seniors that demands attention and planning. By 2029, there will be 14.4 million middle-income seniors in the U.S., many with too much in financial resources to qualify for subsidized programs but too little to afford today’s private pay options. Three in five will have mobility needs, one in five will be high needs with multiple chronic conditions and functional limitations. This webinar will focus on the socio-economic profile of America’s middle income senior and their care needs and how we can serve them—not just with housing but also with care and other supportive services.
This webinar will present data and discussion from researchers on the forefront of this age wave, including key characteristics of the 75-plus middle income population in 2029 and how, by the numbers, this group will impact all aspects of senior housing and care as well as other home and community-based models — from real estate, to labor and supportive services.
In this FREE webinar you will learn:
