Senior housing is a booming community and will continue to climb. Due to the increasing life expectancy, the growing preference to age in a comfortable situation is being seen as an alternative to assisted living communities and nursing homes. This new business model which integrated a higher level of supportive services being offered by senior living communities is linking people with community organizations and services to improve their overall health. This model allows seniors to age-in-place for a longer time period with distinctive benefits for all sides.

These include:

1)    Supportive services can ease the strains on family caregivers

As seniors age, it’s common for their children to take charge into more of a caregiver role. With decreased mobility that comes with aging, caregivers struggle with assisting with common day-to-day tasks. When assisting seniors, there is a multitude of different requests that we have to abide by, such as transportation & meal preparation, the strains associated with senior care can be quite demanding.

2)    Access to daily living necessities enable seniors to age in place longer

Common with most senior living, with age, access to daily living necessities is often by hindered by mobility challenges. Assisted living and nursing care have essentially been the two alternatives for seniors. Senior living communities are starting to adapt to these demands by making services available, such as healthcare management, meals, and transportation. Access to these services can help your clients remain in your establishment for a longer period of time.

3)    Added Healthcare Services Can Improve Quality of Life and Reduce Hospitalizations

Managing medical appointments in the senior living industry can be extremely time-consuming. Preliminary results have shown that senior living residents have had fewer visits to the emergency room.
