“Assisted living occupancy falls to lowest level since 2010,” by Lois A. Bowers, McKnight’s Senior Living

“Occupancy for assisted living in the first quarter of 2017 averaged 87.2%, its lowest level since early 2010, according to data released Wednesday by the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care’s MAP Data Service. The first-quarter rate was down 0.5 percentage points from the fourth quarter of 2016 and down 1.0 percentage points from year-earlier levels.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
ALFs should encourage adult children of residents to plan for LTC with LTCI to help with occupancy long-term.
