How The Retirement Community Industry Has Evolved
Over Time
2
  • Retirement communities have gone beyond the
    nursing homes of the yesteryear's. Weve listed
    what you can expect from the todays retirement
    community industry.
  • There was a time when seniors only had nursing
    homes or old age homes to look at after
    retirement. Over the years, the retirement
    community has gone beyond these nursing homes.
    Today the industry has evolved into levels and
    types of designated senior living
    arrangements that are covered by the category of
    senior housing. Unlike nursing homes, modern
    retirement living facilities have everything to
    let the seniors live a wonderful life.
  • So are todays senior living facilities
    different from their yesteryears counterparts?
  • Lets have a look

Different Types of Accommodation Have Been
Introduced
  • Retirement living communities like assisted
    living are designed for seniors who are still
    active. They provide accommodations of their
    choice which ranges from regular apartment
    complexes to a single room facility. Such choices
    in accommodation werent thought of for a budget
    conscious seniors decades ago.
  • The living spaces are designed according to
    the convenience of the seniors. Most assisted
    living communities have cupboards, high toilets
    and shower seats to support seniors daily
    activities. Walkers and wheelchairs are basic
    services available also.

Availability of Basic to Luxury Services
  • Nowadays, independent living facilities offer
    many amenities and services according to the
    budget and needs of seniors. Meals and
    housekeeping are the most basic services. The
    other services include satellite TV, internet, Wi
    Fi access, dementia care, gyms and social
    interaction session. In fact, some assisted
    living facilities have started providing financial
    banking to its residents. You can also find
    transportation at some facilities. Many senior
    living communities provide beauty/nail salons,
    barber shops, and gardens with walking paths to
    provide a nice clean outdoor environment for the
    residents to enjoy.

Role of Technology Has Become Important
  • Digitalization of senior living facilities
    has been one of the key transformations in recent
    years. It not only streamlines the admin tasks,
    but also improves the life of residents. Seniors
    are encouraged to use devices like iPad and
    laptop. More than 70 of senior living facilities
    in the nation own automated equipment, electronic
    medical records and point of care. This equipment
    enhances security and efficiency in taking care
    of residents health information.

6
It Has Become More Open Towards Sexual
Orientation and Religion
  • There has been rise in religious affiliated
    communities and social groups for LGBTQ residents
    over the past 10 years. These communities are
    liberal towards the residents who dont live by
    the same values, they do offer an accepting and
    enriching atmosphere where like-minded adults can
    develop a cordial relationships and feel
    comfortable.
  • Over the years the retirement community
    industry have changed for the better. These
    changes are welcome as long as they cater to
    the needs of the seniors.
