Geriatric care services encompass providing care for the elderly who are facing chronic physical conditions or other diseases and disorders. These services comprise a wide range of personal care, health care, and other services to meet the requirements of older adults who are limited for self-care owing to chronic illness, injury, mental, physical, and cognitive disability or any other health-related disorders. Geriatric care services also offer assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and other activities, including medication management and house work.
The growing geriatric population intending to live independently is the major factor propelling the global geriatric care services market. In addition, the changing family structure and technological developments are projected to boost the demand for geriatric care services throughout the forecast period. However, a shortage in the geriatric care workforce and high spending requirement are estimated to curtail the growth of the global geriatric care services market in the next few years.
The global geriatric care services market can be classified broadly on the basis of product type into home care services, adult daycare services, and institutional care services. In 2012, the institutional care services segment accounted for the largest share in the overall geriatric care services market. Nevertheless, the home care services segment is anticipated to witness fast-paced growth in the near future. The convenience of home and cost-efficiency are the major factors bolstering the growth of the home care services segment. In addition, the absence of other options including nursing homes in several emerging nations is expected to contribute substantially towards the growth of the home care services segment in the next few years.
