CMS Expert Guide to European care homes

An overview of investment climate in the care homes industry


The world is getting older by the minute.

According to the the 2021 Ageing Report of the EU, the old-age dependency ratio in the EU’s demographic old-age dependency ratio (i.e. the ratio between people aged 65 years and over and those aged 20-64) is projected to increase significantly in the coming decades. From about 29% in 2010, it had risen to 34% in 2019 and is projected to rise further, to 59% in 2070, i.e. a shift from less than four working-age people for every person aged 65 years and over in 2010 to below two in 2070.

This rapid rise of average life expectancy will, in addition to medical advances, dictate the necessity for improvements in the overall quality of life. Changes in the economic structure, social values, and expectations of independency will shape the investment climate for senior housing solutions.

Businesses will be targeting third-generation people more and more, with these entrepreneurial projects including healthy lifestyle options, prolonged education, and tailored housing.

This Expert Guide brings an overview of the current legal framework in the care homes industry across Europe. We have tried to answer the questions of available subsidies, possible restrictions and supervising models applicable for care homes.
