THE CRISIS: ELDER CARE IN SANTA FE
Santa Fe’s population is aging rapidly.
By 2030, more than 26 percent of Santa Fe’s population will be 65 or older. Today, about 18 percent of the city’s residents are 65 or older. This demographic shift means the city will have at least 10,000 more elderly residents in 2030 than it does today.
Providing elder services has financial benefits, not only for seniors and their families, but also for government and our healthcare system. The current cost of services for a senior who “ages in place” at home runs about $1,200 per month. A month in an assisted-living facility can cost more than four times that — and a nursing home eight times that.
Santa Fe has an urgent and growing need to provide the care and services to our aging population – our neighbors, parents and spouses. Life Circle’s goal is to bring together public officials, private businesses, community leaders and concerned individuals to design specific solutions for our community that will improve the level of care and services.
