Planning for a Post Pandemic World

Planning for a Post Pandemic World

Gavin Densmore • February 8, 2021

The end is in sight, and that is good news! With 2 approved vaccines and more on the way, the world is already starting to reopen. That means we can start planning for the future again, free from the uncertainty of lockdowns and other restrictions.

But the COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges and shaken consumer confidence in the senior living industry. Recent news shows that the death rate in senior care facilities was possibly under reported, further eroding the trust people are willing to place in those businesses. So for many, even after the pandemic is over home care and aging in place will still be the preferred alternative.

The coronavirus pandemic’s initial spread throughout nursing homes in the United States continues to color perceptions from prospective residents — and to a lesser extent, their adult children — about the relative safety of long-term care across the spectrum, even in these final days. As a result, current senior living demand is stemming largely from those early in the shopping process and those with urgent needs. People outside of those groups are looking more towards staying in their own homes.

Recent studies show that older Americans also overestimate their ability to care for themselves, so they find after making choices that include aging in place they need some level of care assistance. Even those that move out of their homes into the lowest level of facility, senior living, find a need for help.

This leads to a greater demand for non-medical senior home care, especially as the world reopens. In addition to individual customers seeking care, senior living facilities look for quality senior home care companies to refer to.

All of this presents an opportunity to own your own business. At Home Eldercare offers you the chance to build success for yourself with our proven systems. We begin with a screening process to make sure we are both a good fit for each other.
