The Pew Research Center recently reported that the world centenarian population is projected to grow eightfold by 2050. This is extraordinary growth. With an estimated 451,000 people around the globe over the age of 100 in 2015, that number is expected to be 3.7 million over the next 34 years. This is a staggering statistic considering that the population over the age of 80 and 90 is also expected to skyrocket.
The evidence is everywhere. Assisted Living Centers are popping up in record numbers in nearly every community. The children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of aging seniors are moving their loved ones closer to home to oversee their care and ease their suffering.
