US assisted living facility market size in 2020

  • The growth rate of the 65-and-over populations will continue to be three times greater than that of the total population growth rate through 2030. Put another way, over 10,000 people in the US turn 65 every day, which translates to 40 million baby boomers joining the “senior” ranks by 2030, swelling this segment to 74 million. (Source: US Census Bureau)
  • The proportion of seniors requiring additional care thanks to chronic illness will increase from about 14% (2016) to 21% by 2050. (Source: AARP)
  • The US assisted living facility market size was $73.6 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4% through the next decade. (Source: Grad View Research)
  • Advancements in medical and communication technologies have enabled seniors to live longer and remain more closely connected to family wherever they are.
  • Dual career families have limited ability to take in and care for senior family members.
  • More and more children move away from home, making family caregiving less feasible and assisted living more necessary.

Owl Be There franchise owner in Charlotte South, NC
”#1 thing for me with Owl Be There is that it's a mission-based company. When I started learning about the franchise and went through the discovery process, the values of the company immediately aligned with my own values: helping seniors and their families. While in training, it was very helpful to feel like, even though I own the franchise in Charlotte, North Carolina, I am actually part of an entire team that is working together and I get to rely on the entire team. The website is absolutely amazing and first rate and so are the other marketing materials that have been produced for me with our brand image. They all speak to the values that we are compassionate… and also wise. We are a quality company that really does care about the people we are trying to help.”
