Respect Your Elders

Senior adults retirement

The housing needs of Baby Boomers, now between 69 and 51 years old, will start to change substantially over the next 10-20 years. It might seem like a long way off, but time has a habit of going faster than expected. It's not too soon to start preparing.

Demand for housing that offers affordability, accessibility, support services, and community will rise quickly – and stay high for years. After age 65, 70% of adults will need some form of long-term care, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates. For many, that means an eventual move into seniors housing.

Read the latest Executive Perspectives, "Meeting the Housing Needs of an Aging Population," to learn more about demographic trends, the various types of seniors housing, and Freddie Mac Multifamily's dedication to promoting affordability, increased supply, and quality care for seniors nationwide.
