This year’s Housing for America’s Older Adults report, produced by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University and supported with funding from NIC, includes a special, independent analysis on the middle-market older adult. It underscores that the private and public sectors still have work to do to expand housing access and care choices for middle-income older adults as they age.
The following analysis examines occupancy and year-over-year changes in inventory, and same-store asking rent growth—by care segment—within CCRCs and non-CCRCs in the 99 combined NIC MAP Primary and Secondary Markets. The analysis also explores the distribution of units in CCRCs and non-CCRCs by year of opening as well as regional occupancy rates by profit status (not-for-profit CCRCs vs. for-profit CCRCs) and payment type (entrance fee CCRCs vs. rental CCRCs) during the third quarter of 2023.
Well, what if you didn't have to choose? For 40 years and counting, senior housing owners and operators have prepared for and responded to the housing needs of aging adults. This market, which includes assisted living and independent living as well as memory care and nursing homes, has seen immense growth. But two problems remain: affordability and integration with comprehensive health services. These issues will persist for future generations if we don’t start solving them today—to allow our grandparents, parents, and eventually ourselves to live in the settings we choose with the appropriate set of health care services we need to age with dignity.
