The average life expectancy of someone in a nursing home is 2 - 3 years. This could be a huge leap forward in increasing the quality of life for the elderly, and I look forward to the tech that will be in place when I'm that old.
In that case, LE in the nursing home will decrease further, as the level of monitoring and direct care in the home improves and nursing homes become more for end-of-life care - care that still won't be provided in the home.
