Optometry - A growing domiciliary demand - Flame Health Blog

Henry Pitman, chairman of Optimism Health Group, tells Optometry Today about the demographic changes creating opportunities for domiciliary, and some of the hurdles to growth.

We started to build our healthcare investment business, Optimism Health Group, at the beginning of 2020, and spent the first six months of the year researching healthcare sectors. We became particularly interested in providing clinical products and services to the older demographic.

There will be a very significant increase in the elderly population. The demographic changes are well-articulated – the baby-boomer generation are now moving into their 60s, 70s and 80s. On top of that, people are living longer, but unfortunately often with long-term conditions that require more medical support and make it difficult to go to the High Street.

There is a lot of investment in care homes and live-in care, but some of the periphery, niche services that are essential for people in their own homes, such as the domiciliary sector, have been overlooked. Without question, the domiciliary sector has had a challenging time during COVID-19. Having said that, we think the pandemic has shone a spotlight on the provision of healthcare services at home.
