“COVID-19 has not changed consumer sentiment toward seniors housing: survey,” by Kimberly Bonvissuto, McKnight’s Senior Living
“The COVID-19 crisis has not changed consumer sentiment much toward independent living and assisted living, according to preliminary findings from a national survey. … Among survey respondents, 61% report no change in their opinion about independent living since the onset of the pandemic, although most who have changed their opinion (35%) report having a less favorable opinion. More than half (53%) of adult children surveyed report no change in their opinion of assisted living, although 36% report a less favorable opinion and 11% report a more favorable opinion.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Well, maybe, but all those people dying in LTC facilities couldn’t have helped.
