By the year 2030, the Baby Boomer Generation at large will be age 65 and older, increasing the older adult population to nearly 70 million persons across the United States. Compassion Home aims to serve a fraction of this population who reside in or around Rowland Heights, California. According to the latest dataset from the United States Census Bureau in 2010, the unincorporated city of Rowland Heights had more than 6,400 older adults ages 65 years and older. In 2015, Statistical Atlas notated that more than 7,000 people in Rowland Heights were ages 65 and older. With this growing population of older adults and no residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFE) within a five-mile radius, Compassion Home will be strategically placed in the West side of Rowland Heights, off a major road, Fullerton Road, which connects to neighboring cities such as La Habra and Whittier. Compassion Home is a set apart, unique RCFE, such that it will have limited residents (maximum of six beds) and will offer modern technologies (e.g. iPad stations in common areas), DIY (do-it-yourself) activities, and cultural foods and activities (e.g. Chinese porridge and Karaoke). With these amenities, Compassion Home will serve those who desire communal living without the cost of giving up a quaint, residential home and will expand to multiple locations in due time.
