Is your retirement community keeping up with current trends? Owners and managers of senior living facilities need to be up to date with the latest innovations and challenges.

NORCS, or Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities, are communities that have grown up around long term residents – people who have aged together in the same place.  Many of them take place in urban areas – classically with residents in the same building – but rural areas can have NORCS as well.

Another issue of today’s retirement community is in-home care vs. assisted living. Assisted living offers more flexibility and is often more affordable. However, a senior with serious health issues should consider moving into a facility where they can be monitored 24 hours a day.

Current Research Suggests Future Lack of Housing For Seniors

How do we keep up with senior living trends to meet the demands for housing in the growing senior community?

Over 75 million people were born during the Baby Boom—the post World War II generation that stretches from 1946 through 1964. Many Baby Boomers are already starting to look into their options for assisted healthcare, and many more will be within the next decade. More potential customers means that healthcare centers that act now can prepare to capitalize on the rise in eligible customers. A recent study suggests that, very soon, demand for senior housing will severely exceed the supply.
