The global long term care market is segmented into services and region. In terms of services, the market further split into home healthcare, hospice, nursing care, and assisted living facilities. By services, home healthcare accounted for the largest market share in the year 2018. The segment is mainly growing owing to the shifting preference of people towards home care services instead of the nursing home. The rising discretionary income coupled with increasing healthcare expenditure is also supporting the growth of the segment. Along with this, home healthcare provides reassuring, soothing, and an encouraging environment to the senior citizens allowing them to spend the rest of the life gracefully at home.

Key Observations

  • Smith County Memorial Hospital has successfully built a new long term care unit. The new campus involves nursing home and assisted living options for the men and women who are going to take advantage of the facility.
  • Canada government confirmed the increase of funding on long term care that was earlier in the risk of termination.
  • Brookdale Senior Living Inc. has recently announced a support agreement with Glenview Capital Management. The company is looking forward with the strengthening of its ongoing efforts for delivering long-term value for senior living communities with this agreement.

Key Findings from the study suggest:

  • In 2018, the home healthcare segment was one of the major segments owing to increasing awareness regarding such facilities, cost savings offered by them as compared to hospital stays or nursing homes, and proactive health monitoring
  • The home healthcare segment is expected to witness rapid growth in developing nations owing to increasing need for geriatric care, presence of double-income households, and ongoing social changes
  • Hospice is the fastest growing segment owing to increasing incidence rate of Alzheimer’s and dementia and an increase in post-hospital care. Moreover, the coverage offered by both Medicaid and private insurers has relieved residents from out-of-pocket payments that have to be borne by them
  • North America dominated the long term care market in 2018, majorly driven by advanced medical infrastructure, awareness about the advantages of home health services, rising geriatric population, and government support. Around 13% of the people in U.S. are 65 years or above and it is expected that by 2050, one in five Americans would be at least 65 years of age
  • Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market owing to increasing rate of chronic diseases, the increasing disposable incomes, and decreasing working population. For instance, in China, the one-child policy has eventually decreased the working population as compared to the older population
  • Industry players are continuously investing in expanding and revamping existing facilities. For instance, in February 2019, Genesis HealthCare underwent a real estate partnership with Next Healthcare Capital. The deal involved 15 skilled nursing facilities previously leased from Welltower Inc.
  • Key players operating in the global market include Brookdale Senior Living, Inc.; Sunrise Carlisle, LP; Atria Senior Living Group; Extendicare, Inc.; Senior Care Centers of America; Kindred Healthcare, Inc.; Genesis Healthcare Corp.; Home Instead Senior Care, Inc.; Capital Senior Living Corporation; and Diversicare Healthcare Services, Inc.
