The next decades will see a sharp increase in the number of senior citizens in Denmark, like in so many other industrialised countries. This is partly due to higher average life expectancy, partly to the fact that the large generation of post-war baby boomers, born between 1945 and 1965, has gradually reached or is approaching retirement age. By year 2045 the Danish population is expected to have grown by approx 9% overall, the 65+ age bracket by approx 39% and the 85+ age bracket by 140%. Various housing concepts are in play for these older age groups.
The expected increase in the number of senior citizens has served to whet investor appetite for dwellings matching the requirements of this population segment. This article focuses on assisted living facilities. Read the article HERE.
