Changing Age Structure: The Aging of the Baby-Boom Generation
  • Boomers born between 1946 & 1964
  • Year 2000: Boomers = Persons aged 36-54
  • Year 2004: Boomers = Persons aged 40-58
  • Year 2006: Boomers = Persons aged 42-60
  • Year 2010: Boomers = Persons aged 46-64
  • Year 2016: Boomers = Persons aged 52-70
  • Year 2024: Boomers = Persons aged 60-78
Short-term Trends: 2000 – 20031. Migration > Natural Increase2. Uneven Sub-State Regional Growth3. Increasing Racial & Ethnic Diversity

a nursing facility forecasts
A. Nursing Facility Forecasts
  • Scenario 1: VDH Bed Need Forecast Model

(2002 nursing home use rate & average facility size constant)

Source: VDA Application of VDH Nursing Bed Forecast Methodology for COPN Review; additional facilities calculated by dividing forecasted additional future NF residents by minimum facility size (120) criteria.

Scenario 2: VDH Bed Need Forecast Model(Selected)

(’98 – ‘02 rate trends extended to 2010,

constant NF use rate post 2010)

b assisted living facility forecast
B. Assisted Living Facility Forecast

Source: Developed by VDA

Methodology: Based on historic 2000 DSS licensing data, 2004 DSS survey reported facility occupancy rate of 86.1% and estimated 2000 utilization rate per 1,000 of population age 65 & over applied to forecast population age 65 & over. Occupancy rates assumed to increase from 85% to 95% over forecast period. 2000 avg. beds per facility (55) held constant over forecast period.

comparative state demographic data
Comparative State Demographic Data
  • In 2003, 22.4% of Florida’s population was age 60 & over (ranked 1st), compared to Virginia’s 15.6%
  • Between 2000 & 2003, Virginia gained 79,020 persons age 60 & over, a 7.3% increase since 2000
  • Based on national projections, Virginia’s population age 60+(24.3%)in 2025 will be roughly comparable to Florida’s current age structure (persons age 60+ =22.4%of total in 2003).
c home health care forecast
C. Home Health Care Forecast

Source: Developed by VDA from National Center for Health Statistics, Current Home Health Statistics (Feb. 2004)

Methodology: National rates of home health care usage applied to LTC residual population by age group.

d community based care e g aaa
D. Community-Based Care (e.g. AAA)

Source: Developed by VDA. Methodology: Residual population by age group remaining after subtracting forecasted institutionalized population (by age group) in nursing and assisted living facilities and patients receiving home health care services. *Projected clients served based on assumed proportional increased funding and same market share over projection period.

e ltc workforce forecast by sector
E. LTC Workforce Forecast, by Sector

Source: Developed by VDA in consultation with Virginia Board of Nursing staff.

Methodology: Based on Nursing survey performed by VA Tech in Oct 2001 for Board of Nursing and July 2000 active number of nursing licensees by license type. Unlicensed worker estimate based on national trends.

e ltc workforce forecast continued
E. LTC Workforce Forecast (continued)
  • Scenario A: Maintain 2000 Work Force Patterns = 110 % Increase by 2030
  • Scenario B: BLS Occupational Demand Forecasts = 146% increase by 2030

Source: Developed by VDA staff in consultation with Board of Nursing staff. NF forecast series #2 used for NFs.

Methodology: A) LTC nursing workers (by type) forecast based on 2000 nursing rate per 1000 care population. B) 2000 LTC nursing workers forecast based on BLS occupational growth rates by decade published in: U.S. HHS, Report to Congress: "The Future Supply of Long-Term Care Workers in Relation to the Aging Baby Boom Generation", May 14, 2003, (Assumed Growth Rates) Table 8, page 16
