A consistent and steadily growing sector in the US economy is the healthcare industry, particularly for the Baby Boomer generation who are now seniors, making up a large portion of the American population. Elder care is a necessity for most families with older parents or those with children who have developmental disabilities. Today assisted and independent living with healthcare services on-site can cost on average $40,000.00 per year and a home-care worker can average between $19,000.00 – $21,000.00 per year. These costs have risen steadily and have led to a change in the American family structure where multi-generational relatives now live in the same household.
The US ranks 11th in elder care among other developed nations. The Commonwealth Fund’s International Health Policy Survey (2017), found that a disproportionate number of elderly Americans on Medicare face economic barriers to healthcare due to shared costs and those not subsidized under the program. A staggering 31% of seniors skip treatment because of the financial burden and shared cost compared to 2% of the elder population in Sweden. Although Medicare is a near-universal health plan, shared costs for recipients can deter them from receiving the care or medication they need to treat chronic pain or age-related illness.
