The Easy Guide to Long Term Care Statistics For Carers

Providers of long term care for the elderly and the disabled, such as nursing homes, professional nurses, and assisted living facilities need to be able to keep track of what is going on in their industry. Being able to keep up on the latest statistics and facts about long term care lets you know what other providers and facilities are doing, as well as the laws that regulate your business. Providing the best care you can is an important priority, but it's also vital to know what the going rates and practices are. Fortunately, there are a number of locations where you can find long term care statistics.

AARP maintains a website including reports and profiles of long term care by year and by state. While not every year is represented, there are still a large number of statistics and profiles available. Each state is compared to the others through rankings and national averages. A snapshot of each state's demographics, need for long term care, available long term care services, and financing is created by the data in these profiles. They are available online for free download from the research section of the AARP website.

Other long term care statistics are available in different places online. These include useful information such as the following, which could be of help for carers planning their rates or investigating what insurance will cover. The daily rate for a private room in a nursing home in 2006 was around $200. A semi-private room was $183. The rate for a private room was expected to rise to $250 in 2007. Adult day care is estimated to cost around $13,000 to $25,000 by comparison. More than half of the US population is expected to require some kind of long term care at some point in their lives. This, combined with the aging of the Baby Boom generation, means that the long term care industry is continuing to grow. One out of five Americans over the age of 50 is at risk of needing long term care in the next year, and in couples over the age of 65, there's a 75% change that one partner will require long term care.

Long term care statistics are an important way for caregivers throughout the industry to keep track of what is going on in their field. This way they can plan accordingly to give the best quality of service while maintaining consistency in their business. Because most Americans will need quality long term care at some point in their lives, it's important for the care industry to keep going strong, so that it will be able to provide for their needs.   Site Map - About Us - Contact Us - Terms of Use - Privacy Policy
