A Growing National Challenge

A passion for preserving culture and staying true to character are defining elements of Irish life. This passion for safeguarding culture and character is being tested by a growing phenomenon. According to the Irish Central Statistics Office, there are 1.1 million people aged 60 years old and older living in Ireland today. By 2041, the elderly are expected to make up 22 percent of the total population. Organisations from the Irish Department of Health to the Central Statistics Office report that mobility, nutrition, physical activity, injury from falls and sensory impairment are among the ailments that pose the largest risks both to the senior population and to the capacity of the health care organisations available to help them. Additional resources and organisations are needed to meet the rising demand.  

An Opportunity in An Expanding Industry

The franchised business market in Ireland is home to over 300 franchisors and 4,000 franchised businesses that employ more than 40,000 people. These businesses generate €2.4 billion in revenue per year, and favorable government policies indicate that growth should continue. The health services sector is growing as well in Ireland, in large part due to the ageing population. The Irish Department of Health stated that population ageing is having major implications for the planning and provision of health services, and the proportion of private pay health care expenditures is going up relative to public pay health care. This growth, coupled with the ageing population, creates an opportunity for businesses that help the elderly to remain in their homes.
