10,000 Americans turn 65 every day

In today’s world, our population is aging and more people want to age in their own homes.

The oldest members of the Baby Boomer generation turned 65 just 5 years ago, and 10,000 more Boomers turn 65 every day. This trend will continue until 2030, when the youngest member of the generation reaches the silver age. By that point, nearly 1 in 5 Americans will be 65 years of age or older. 

What this means is that over the next 20 years or so, this massive generation is going to have a huge impact on the elder care industry, everything from aging in place to home care and assisted living. Their children and grandchildren—Generation X and Millennials, respectively—will be the ones increasingly responsible for their care.

It’ll be their loved ones who’ll want to make sure their aging parents and grandparents receive care that helps them maintain their dignity and independence. And with hundreds of thousands of people becoming seniors each month, there will be mounting pressure on conventional elder care solutions to meet the needs of older adults.

Luckily, ComforTek provides innovative products designed to mitigate injury risk among caregivers and to maintain dignity and independence among older adults. Whether they’re aging in place or staying in an assisted living facility.
