1.1 Definition and scope of study

Nursing homes are facilities for the accommodation of elderly people who are not entirely self-sufficient because they suffer from pathologies at a stage that requires the assistance of specialised health personnel. It is precisely this characteristic that differentiates nursing homes from rest homes, which are facilities used for the stay or holiday of the elderly population, and from Health Care Residences, which are, instead, facilities used for the hospitality of non-self-sufficient elderly or disabled adults. 

Most nursing homes are private facilities: for this reason, the stay in them is conditioned by the payment of a fee by the guest himself or by his family. 

The value of the global nursing home market in 2020 has been estimated at $248.5 billion. It is expected to grow at CAGR of 4.8% and reach a value of $345 billion by 2027.

The Italian nursing home market currently consists of approximately 7500 facilities, most of which are not public facilities. The number of guests, the vast majority of whom are not self-sufficien, has increased dramatically in recent years.

The geographical distribution of the facilities on the Italian territory is not homogeneous: only three regions, namely Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna and Veneto, hold the absolute record by providing more than 50% of the total number of places available in all Italian nursing homes. Despite this, Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna, together with three regions in the South, Campania, Sicily and Apulia, will be the regions with the greatest increase in available beds. 

The strong growth of the sector also explains the growing interest of many investors in these infrastructures as a form of investment. The upward trend in the average age of the Italian population is undoubtedly one of the factors that positively influences investors' choices, significantly reducing the risk associated with this type of investment, whose returns are, in fact, very high (6%-7.5%).
