Podcast: Insights from Welltower on Preparing for the Future of Elder Care

The American population continues to live longer and age at an unprecedented rate and scale. The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by 2035, seniors will outnumber children for the first time in the nation’s history.
 
This rapid demographic transformation necessitates an evolution by healthcare organizations to reflect the needs of an elderly-dependent population. Elder care providers are tasked to make health and wellness more accessible to senior communities and are challenged to think differently about where and how senior populations will live as they age.
 
As residential senior care and home health models are reimagined, the emerging elder care system must be rooted in empathy and designed to meet the new requirements of an aging population.

In the latest episode of BDO’s Health & Life Sciences Rx Podcast, BDO’s Patrick Pilch and Welltower CEO Tom DeRosa discuss the future of elder care and the roles of housing and infrastructure in the care continuum.
