It’s a question that more and more American adults are asking themselves. People 65 or older will make up 20 percent or more of the population of the United States by 2050. That’s double what it was in the 1950s, when most of the Baby Boomers, who are now reaching peak retirement, were born.

Cincinnatian Ken Paley and his dog Marley, a survivor of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana.

 Ken Paley didn’t seek out a career in senior care. A career in senior care sought out him.

Around 2007, while he was still a principal with The Angus Group, an executive recruiting firm, he received a call from his sister.
