With the elderly population of Albania projected to increase by almost 40% in the coming decades, the need for expanding long-term care options for the elderly is becoming a more pressing issue. We explored opportunities for Seniors’ Home, a project of Yunus Social Business, to provide long-term care services to more clients. Short-term solutions for Seniors’ Home include implementing in-home services and improving marketing strategies. We also propose incentives to encourage more private investment in long-term care by reducing payroll taxes on senior care providers and value added tax on consumers which could lower costs and lead to more senior care options.
