5 trends will ‘future-proof’ senior living industry in 2021

Kimberly Bonvissuto, News – McKnight’s Senior Living

More than 85 independent living, assisted living and memory care leaders joined together at the International Council on Active Aging Forum in November. Together, they identified a philosophy and infrastructure of the “optimal community,” which offers lifestyle and services desired by current residents, with the quality-of-life features future residents will seek.

Five trends for senior living in 2021 to emerge:

  1. Redefine the meaning of “community.”
  2. Expand the built and unbuilt environment.
  3. Integrate technology through all operations.
  4. Emphasize wellness culture and lifestyle.
  5. Strengthen workforce quality, growth and retention.

Strategies for addressing these trends can be found in the “Creating a path towards the ‘next normal’ in senior living” report
