The future of the health care industry is predicted to be positive due to the rising numbers of baby boomers entering retirement as well as the upward trajectory of the average annual growth rate in assisted living capacity. A Harvard scholar analysis of the market for elderly care places this growth rate at 6.3%. The high volume of care facilities as well as people to care for correlates to a higher the demand for Personal Support Workers. Additionally, from a demographic perspective, elderly individuals are now living longer which also corresponds to higher client opportunity numbers.
