Moderate capital requirement
A geriatrics center requires sizeable amount of capital investment to cover the start-up costs.

The experience of know-how to operate a non-profit geriatrics care center could place a barrier for any entrant who plans to enter this industry. The corporate structure and practice of a non-profit industry could be different from a profit-making industry since the objective of non-profit industry is to create best interest to the community, not to the company or shareholders.
