New research from NORC at the University of Chicago, funded by a grant from the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing and Care, sheds light on older adults’ vulnerability to declining health outcomes before and after entering a senior housing and care property. The results of the study provide insights into understanding current and growing demand for senior housing. The study is the first in a four-part research series that assesses the health and well-being of seniors housing and care residents. Subsequent studies will provide insights on access to health care providers, longevity, and health outcomes of residents in senior living settings.
Session speakers kickstart inspiration. Radical customer engagement can drive business growth. Healthcare and senior living can co-exist to open new possibilities. These are just two of the provocative topics to be explored during the NIC Talks session at the 2023 NIC Fall Conference.
I have mixed emotions as I write this blog post announcing that I will be transitioning my role at NIC. After nine years of being on the staff as NIC’s Chief Economist and a comparable number of years being involved with NIC in various roles including being a member of the Board of Directors and the chair of the Research Committee, I will be stepping back to spend more time on other activities. That said, I am not entirely stepping back!
