Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Nursing homes provide 24-hour high-level care for residents typically aged over 70, and for severely disabled younger people.

The Nursing Homes industry exhibits a low level of concentration, with the top four organisations accounting for less than 10.0% of all nursing home beds.
