Today’s seniors want to live in their homes longer and more independently. According to an AARP survey, 85% of individuals 55 and older want to remain in their own homes for as long as possible.  This movement to “age in place” is creating a growing trend of delivering a broad set of services and solutions to the elderly where they live, instead of moving aging populations to centralized points of care.

This article highlights the two most prevalent options for delivering home care services, the pros and cons of various home care program ownership models, case studies of each of these models, and the operational opportunities and risks of expanding into home-based community services.
