http://www.reportlinker.com/p0833393/The-Long-Term-Care-Market-Nursing-Homes-Home-Care-Hospice-Care-and-Assisted-Living.html

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:

Nursing care
Home care
Hospice care
Assisted living
For each of these critical markets, Kalorama provides a market size and forecast estimate.

Kalorama Information publishes its fifth edition of this detailed report on the long term care industry 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 pocket 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.

For each of the segments of long term care the report provides:
