Expansion in retirement living and residential aged care has been identified as one of 25 opportunities for economic growth in Australia. A relatively wealthier, ageing baby boomer generation looking to maintain their expectations will transform the market for nursing homes.



Through new research, professional services firm Deloitte has identified that a major reason for this expected growth is due to the soon to retire baby boomer generation.
