A SILVER TSUNAMI

IS COMING; AND IT NEEDS TO BE HARNESSED.

A silver tsunami is almost upon us. By 2030 20 percent of the US population will be 65 or older. This wave of change will bring with it new challenges and new opportunities. Challenges will range from the economic impact of people retiring to caring for a significant segment of the population. The opportunities include getting ahead of the impending challenges and innovating solutions today, so we’re ready for tomorrow.

CareTech Derby Pitch Competition

Unpaid or “informal” caregivers provide an astounding $506 billion of free care every year.  Many caregivers report that they operate in a near-constant “crisis mode” and struggle to find available resources fragmented throughout the healthcare system and the community.

LHCC and its partners searched nationwide for solutions that support caregivers.

CareTech launched an exciting KY Derby weekend for our finalists and stakeholders.  Coming soon: meet our finalists!
