THE NEW CAREGIVING ECONOMY

By 2020, over 100 million Americans will need assistance of some kind, yet we will have less than half the family caregivers needed (45 million) to care for them. When it comes to a growing caregiving economy, there are two paths to success: offering quality, turnkey senior care solutions and offering self-care services to stressed out family caregivers. Harvard Business School recently found employers are disconnected from their caregiving employees and grossly underestimate their $13 billion annual value. And, the faces of caregiving are changing. Caregiving has been focused on boomer women but AARP, SCAN Foundation and AP, among others are identifying that more men and more millennials are taking on caregiving duties. The panel addresses the trends in developing partnerships, products, services and engagement activities to support the needs of family caregivers – your new customer.

BOOMERS, BRAIN HEALTH AND THE NEXT WELLNESS BUSINESS REVOLUTION

By 2050, Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease will number 14 million – more than double the incidence of 5.7 million today – and will cost the U.S. government $1 trillion. With a lack of public knowledge about Alzheimer’s and fewer health care professionals going into aging care, families are severely impacted by this disease with 14 million family caregivers struggling to care for and support their loved ones. Whether it’s Alzheimer’s and dementia, depression, or mental illness, brain health is the next frontier in health and wellness. This expert panel, representing both the private and public sectors, explain why having a brain health and dementia strategy as part of your business model is essential in the longevity economy.
