Home Care Franchise in Montana
Montana is known for being exceptionally cold, but the state has popular retirement communities for people that enjoy skiing and other cold-weather sports. It’s also ideal for retirees who seek a low key and quiet lifestyle, as the nearest big city (Spokane, Washington) is over 200 miles away.
Although the winter temperatures are severe, mild summer temperatures in the mountains can make up for them. Montana’s unemployment is lower than the national average, which bodes well for seniors who still want to work part-time.
The cost of living is surprisingly not that low, most likely due to wealthy retirement communities. As Montana is slated to age faster due to its small population shrinking, there will be a higher demand for healthcare services including home health.
Population Projection in Montana
Montana’s current population is almost 1 million. More than 21% are over 60 years of age.
Due to Montana’s already small population, the number of people under 60 are shrinking and the number over 60 are growing. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2030, over 30% of Montana’s population will be over 60. That’s an increase of 43% from 2012, and higher than the national average.
Higher than average senior population calls for more in home care services. Not all seniors need to be in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. In home care services allow seniors stay in their own homes and help them with light housekeeping, appointments, medication reminders, hygiene needs, etc.
