Independent Living and the Future of CCRCs

Held Thursday, July 23, 2015, at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

So many opinions have been expressed about the future of CCRCs in light of increased interest in independent living. Considered by many to be the core of the continuum, providers often think of independent living as an entrée to assisted living. Others, on the other hand, are developing or buying freestanding, market-rate, independent living communities with few services, developing startup rental communities, and locating new projects in urban areas. The target markets for these new independent living communities is not only those with low/moderate incomes but, rather, middle-income and affluent seniors, as well. Are we seeing a trend? What’s the right path for providers—and for investors—going forward?



Join us as we discuss:

  • Why people are choosing these new types of independent living communities
  • The developer and investor interest in rental IL communities.
  • Their effect on entrance-fee CCRCs.
  • and more!

PLUS... your chance to ask our panel of experts any questions about CCRCs vs. Independent Living.
