Senior Care facilities are expanding their options, and facility owners and managers should stay up to date on current trends to continue attracting new residents. Some of these trends include independent living, for seniors that are still able to live on their own but want the experience of a community, and assisted living for seniors who just need the partial medical supervision. A departure from the traditional senior care facility, NORCS or Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities, offer elders the ability to continue a similar way of life and remain in their current apartment, home or location. NORCS can provide expanded options and a reliable rental base for property owners. Today’s seniors, the baby-boom generation, are looking for a place to live that feels like home.The best retirement homes offer flexible care, holistic care and modern technology for their residents who aren’t interested in the clinical health care facilities of the past.
