"SENIOR HOUSING GAP LOOMING AS BOOMERS AGE,"

LEADINGAGE NEW YORK REPORT FINDS.

New York State faces a significant growing gap in the supply of safe and affordable senior housing as well as health care and other support services due to the steep growth in the number of senior citizens, as Baby Boomers get older, according to a report released today by LeadingAge New York, an association of non-profit senior care providers.

The report, “Senior Housing in New York State,” details the growing need for good senior housing policy, stronger health care for seniors and the disproportionate impact that future trends will have on women. The analysis breaks out trends by region in a simple and easily understandable way.

“One in five New York State residents will be 65 or older within the next 30 years, while the 85-plus age group will grow by almost 50 percent,” said LeadingAge New York President James W. Clyne, Jr. “Disability, cognitive impairment and chronic disease all increase with age. These seniors will need good places to live and quality health care at affordable prices. And this isn’t an issue we can take care of at the last minute – New York needs to be planning for it now."
