What Percentage of 60-Year-Olds are Single?

What Percentage of 60-Year-Olds are Single

According to the U.S. Census Bureau data, a significantly increasing number of people are staying alone as they age – 45 percent of Americans in their 50s and 60s are single today, in comparison to 28 percent in 1960.

The increased number of single people age 50 and up is caused by a decline in marriage among working adults and a rising divorce rate among Baby Boomers (nearly doubled since the 1990s). Also, many people over the age of 60 have lost their spouses and they are still grieving.

According to a Pew Research Center report, around four in ten adults ages 25 to 54 were neither married nor living with a partner in 2019. In addition, their research shows that men are more likely than women to be single.

Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
