Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pjljkt/the_long_term)
has announced the addition of the "The
Long Term Care Market: Nursing Homes, Home Care, Hospice Care, and
Assisted Living" report to their offering.
The advancing age of the population makes long-term care an important
consideration for health marketers. This report, The Long Term Care
Market: Nursing Homes, Home Care, Hospice Care, and Assisted Living,
covers the most important segments of the long term care industry, each
of which provide medical care and/or assistance with the activities of
daily living (ADLs) on an ongoing basis.
In 2008, the overall U.S. long term care industry exceeded $224 billion.
Through 2013, the industry overall experienced solid expansion, growing
by 4.3% per year, on average, to reach $276.7 billion. The strongest
growth occurred in the home care segment, which expanded by 7.2% per
year through a combination of price increases and expanded utilization.
Assisted living revenues grew at a slower rate of 5.6% per year in a
weak economy in which consumer spending is reduced from prior levels. At
1.6% per year, nursing care demonstrated the lowest growth and is
increasingly suffering from state efforts to reimburse lower cost home
care over higher priced nursing care.

This detailed report on the long term care industry comes at a time of
growth but also increasing concern, particularly about payments, for the
long term care industry. The elderly must contribute a far greater
amount towards care out of pocet than was once the case. The economy
has challenged the business strategies of key players, while the recent
healthcare legislation introduces changes that may affect revenues.
Although a small segment of long term care users are younger individuals
with various mental and physical disabilities, most persons using long
term care services are senior citizens. This population will also drive
industry growth over the forecast period. Therefore, this report will
focus on the elderly as the primary customers of long term care services.
