Trends, Insights and Outlook for Seniors Housing Investors
Seniors housing changed forever. After a challenging year that stretched staffing, impacted finances, and will forever reshape the seniors housing industry, the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine is a light at the end of the tunnel for operators. Care providers face a long path to full recovery in 2021, characterized by new operational initiatives and an increased focus on clinical care, utilizing lessons learned through the health crisis to restore consumer confidence. Seniors housing will play a more significant role in the healthcare continuum, as it has during the pandemic, developing and implementing evidence based outcomes to improve the quality of life and safety of residents and staff. Assisted living, in particular, has cemented its position in the healthcare marketplace, and moving forward, the care segment’s role in the healthcare industry will continue to grow.
