Market and Revenue for the Adult Living Industry
The adult living industry is well spread in America with more than one million adult people enrolled in this program. It is also evident that this population may increaserise twice as much by the year 2030 due to the continuous increase in the number of adults enrolled in this program every year (Ortiz, 2017). Given that the American government has placed minimal restrictions for individuals who want to join this business, there are therefore a large number of institutions and investors conducting this program. It is also evident from research that the adult women are more than the male who are being enrolled in this industry. On the other hand, given that the American government has placed little restrictions towards this program; many institutions conducting these programs just require licensing and less non-profitable structures and other basic facilities which enable them to make a lot of profit in this industry (Ortiz, 2017). These facilities are also offered I accordance to the income level of the adult individuals and their families and hence they enable both the low social status and the higher social status personnel to afford these services more conveniently. This enables them to earn a lot of revenue. Also, these revenues accrued are mainly spent in the maintenance and management of the housing and service provision to the members of this industry and the society at large. Comment by Rozlyn Zuber: The purpose is clearly stated. However, the project objectives in specific, realistic, and measurable terms are not fully describes. The objective should address what is to be gained. This is a restatement of the question, providing focus. Measurements need to be taken before and after the evidence-based practice is introduced to identify the expected changes. Keep up the good effort.
Despite this industry working towards the betterment of the life of the adults and offering adequate services to the adults, some challenges like the mental illness and other impaired diseases really hinder the provision of these services (Culo, 2011). This is because these elderly are very vulnerable to many diseases and other issues hence this industry takes a great risk in disseminating its services.
Services offered by the adult living industry are very crucial to a country in terms of taking care of the elderly given that they cannot take care of themselves. The program is available since there are many elderly individuals and those who have retired who seek to enjoy these services. Due to the available resource and an increase in the number of the adults, the demand for these services has greatly increased. This is advantageous even for the nursing and medical practitioners who take care of the elderly in America since these services enable to easily take care of the elderly in a more appropriate manner. The adult living industry is very important to the adults, those retiring and those with disabilities in America.
