Home Care Franchise in Michigan
Michigan is not usually the first state that comes to mind when thinking of retiring near water. But people living in Michigan are never more than 6 miles away from a body of water, thanks to the Great Lake that has more than 36,000 miles of streams.
Because of its low profile, Michigan enjoys lower cost of living than the national average – at 10% below. The median home only costs a little over $129,000. Even nursing home and assisted living facilities that can really eat up a lot of retiree budget cost less than the national average.
As the country gets older, more people will seek “hidden gems” and stay away from over-crowded and typical retirement destinations like New Mexico, Arizona, or Florida. Michigan will appeal to retirees who don’t mind the cold and want to be near water without having to pay the Californian or the East Coast “waterfront” prices.
Retirees on fixed income will certainly look into in home care services. As a ComForCare franchisee in Michigan, you’ll be in a good place to meet the growing demands of such services and help seniors ease into the process of aging.
Population Projection in Michigan
The current population in Michigan is nearly 9.9 million. Of those, over 1.9 million, or 19.5% are over 60 years of age.
The population in Michigan for people over 60 years of age is growing. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2030, 24% of the state’s population will be 60 and older. That’s an increase of 32% from 2012.
Michigan is not one of the fastest aging states but it’s not one of the youngest either. It also suffers from low birthrates.
