"We want to educate our readers on these challenges, issues, health concerns and lifestyle concerns that are faced by women every day in assisted living."
(PRWEB) August 10, 2012
It is estimated that over 65% of assisted living, retirement living and the long-term care community living residents are females. These senior women come from all walks of life and range from single to divorced to widowed. For many senior communities this population group is increasing rapidly every day due to the baby boomer generation reaching their golden boomer retirement years.
"We are seeing a huge increase in divorced and widowed women within senior assisted living or retirement communities. For some communities this is changing the face of the communities care and living programs due to not only the baby boomer generation and the increase of senior population connected to the generation, but also due to the high numbers of women versus men within the age group. Women face many different challenges and issues during their senior years that we felt needed to be focused on as part of our weekly spotlight. We want to educate our readers on these challenges, issues, health concerns and lifestyle concerns that are faced by women every day in assisted living," stated James Connolly of LivingSenior.com.
The focus on women in senior living will develop over the course of the week through daily blogs posted a 10:00 AM central standard time. These blogs will flow into the Senior Center as part of their weekly spotlight as well. The main focus of the blogs will be concerning the Health Care issues, finances and special issues that many women face as they enter assisted living after the loss of a spouse, divorce or due to illness. The content will also focus on niche communities that are available to women entering assisted living or senior retirement age. Special focus will be given to the niche communities that offer retirement living for women who are part of the LGBT community.
