Delivering Value to Senior Living Residents Through Healthcare Collaboration

By: NIC  |  February 02, 2023

Older adults choosing where they live is becoming increasingly dependent on how they want to live. Baby Boomers are determined to live with a sense of greater purpose—connected to their personal interests and those of the community around them. As part of that greater purpose, this generation is prioritizing their health and well-being. Senior housing has a significant role to play now, and in the future, to help deliver the value that residents demand.

Reducing Loneliness and Isolation Among Older Adults

By: Caroline Clapp  |  December 20, 2022

Loneliness and isolation were health concerns for older adults before the pandemic and have become more so in the aftermath of the worst of the pandemic period partly due to restrictions and protocols that were put in place within seniors housing communities and health care facilities. A search for publications that mentioned “loneliness” or “isolation” and “older adult(s)” or “older people” produced a result of roughly 19,000 publications in 2013. This number climbed to more than 25,000 in 2019 and spiked to more than 40,000 and 45,000 publications in 2020 and 2021, respectively. While down to roughly 32,000 thus far in 2022 (as of December 15), the level of interest and concern remains elevated.
