While COVID-19 continues to present a host of unprecedented challenges, it has also drawn investor interest and M&A activity toward sectors that have shown resilience.
Home care and hospice are clear examples of this trend. Performance in these sectors has remained strong despite COVID-19, and the pandemic has strengthened the broader theme of “aging in place,” with seniors and families increasingly seeking home-based alternatives to long-term care facilities. This led to robust M&A activity across the home-based care continuum in 2020, with several landmark transactions and strong deal volume for both strategic buyers and sponsors.
