Senior Housing Healthcare and Housing Technology Trends
By Tom Mann, Executive Vice President
In the fourth installment of our Senior Housing Trends Series, we will be looking at the future of health care and home technology as it relates to retirement communities. Just a few years ago, these advancements seemed like something out of a sci-fi novel. But, today they’re realistic goals that we should consider, and think about implementing in the near future.
With the average age of entry into a Life Plan Community (Continuing Care Retirement Community) now in excess of 80 years old, health care will continue to be one of the major sectors affecting our business, as well as housing technology. Here are some of the major trends we see including nanotechnology, 3-D printing, self-driving cars, solar energy, and much more.
The healthcare realm as we know it is changing at a faster pace than any in other time in mankind’s history. Nanotechnology, human genome mapping, and microbiology are all colliding to produce quantum leaps in health care. What implications will it have on your senior housing community?
