Provision of care for the ageing boomers will be very different from the services our members provided in the past few decades.   And a lot of research has been done on trying to define the new ‘market’, including what the consumer will want and how they will impact society.

AAHSA’s Consumer Cabinet has done everyone a great service by compiling resource listings of studies and research that has been conducted about older consumers.    The resources include a wide variety of information including the impact of consumers on providers, communities, workforce and health care.

Even though most of the references are US-based, many of the lessons could be useful to providers around the world.
