Geriatric Care Services – Ageless Care
Aging increases the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiac disorders, arthritis, and respiratory disorders that require continuous monitoring. Also, aging decreases bone density that makes it a challenge for the geriatric population to continuously manage their medical needs and perform their daily activities. Hence, the need for geriatric care services arises, which to a great extent eases the life of the elderly population. Increasing need for continuous health assistance by the elderly population is driving demand for continuing care.
The global geriatric care services market was valued at US$ 599.6 billion in 2015 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2016 – 2024).
