For the first time, the number of senior citizens has exceeded the number of children in the United Kingdom, which highlights the growing need for care home for the elderly in the UK.
The Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt has stated that for the 1st time in history, the number of pensioners exceeded the number of children in the United Kingdom. With one in three over 65s diagnosed with dementia, Hunt has promised £50 million to improve care for dementia patients.
Highlighting the need for on-gong improvement of care of patients, the Alzheimer's Society has reported that 6% of dementia sufferers died at home in 2010, compared to the 21% of the general population who died at home. With such a small percentage of dementia patients unable to seek home care, investment into specialist care homes in the UK is much needed.
"We have to face facts. As a society, dementia is one of the biggest threats we will face in the 21st century. It will affect us all - whether it's someone we know, someone we care for, or even ourselves,” Hunt stated in a recent interview with Sky News.
With an additional £50 million promised to making the United Kingdom the 'best place in Europe to grow old', investment in care homes in the UK is set to grow in line with the demand from the consistently increasing ageing population.

Care home property investment has proven to be a steady asset class despite the economic downturn. Colliers International's Stability of the Healthcare Income Stream report stated that care home investment property outperformed commercial and residential property in 2011, emphasising the sectors strength to those looking for care home investments.
Investment in non- discretionary sectors such as care homes has become a profitable option for investors interested in a steady income stream, with experts predicting that investment into healthcare property will soar due to the demand from the UK's growing elderly population.
