Demand for assisted-living facilities, nursing homes and retirement communities is expected to balloon in the next two decades as baby boomers retire and the incidence of progressive illnesses increases. The number of Americans over the age of 65 is expected to double to 71 million by 2030, and a projected 7.7 million of them will suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, a 50% increase from today, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. This represents an uptick for construction development of retirement and assisted living housing and an increased need for all those professionals that make up the fabric of senior living care.
