“MIT: Assisted Living Innovation and Design to Flourish as U.S. Ages,” by Tim Regan, Senior Housing News
“As the number of seniors who need senior living services grows, assisted living providers will likely move away from operating smaller, stand-alone locations and instead choose to operate larger, more complex and cost-effective buildings, according to Albert Saiz, director of the MIT Center for Real Estate. . . . One possible trend the researchers identified is the rise of suburban ‘civic centers,’ which are clusters of public spaces, schools, retail, multifamily units and mixed-use buildings where the young and old co-exist.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
All fine and good, but how about more attention to how people are going to pay for these big new ideas?
