Boomers reinventing assisted living
Senior housing options are no longer one-size-fits-all.
Retirees who require help with daily activities can choose from a variety of settings that reflect their lifestyle choices and meet their physical needs. It's likely the menu of options will continue to grow.
"Fifty years ago, people didn't live as long and their families took care of them," says Carle. "Now, seniors are living longer and looking for different housing options."
Baby boomers have "exploded the portfolio of products at every stage of their lives," says Carle, noting there was only one flavor of Coke when they were born.
As boomers reach retirement age, senior housing options are proving no different.
