Statistics

Confidence Builders New Mexico :: Aging In Place Statistics

More than 85% of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age.

A study by Clarity and the EAR Foundation showed that older people feared losing independence and going to a nursing home more than they feared death.

Falls are the leading cause of injury-related visits to the emergency room in the U.S. and the primary cause of accidental deaths (75%) in people over 65.

Only a few people express a preference for moving to a facility where care is provided (9%) or for moving to a relative’s home (4%).

Thinking about parents’ getting older is on the minds of most adult children (88%) and older parents (75%).

Most pre-retirees expect they will be able to live independently during retirement; relatively few (14%) expect they will need day-to-day assistance or ongoing health care at any point during their retirement.

14%

The United States could save $26 billion per year if currently healthy older people were able to remain fully independent over the course of a single year.
