Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
Accent on Seniors, Inc., a leading California senior living referral service that helps seniors and their families find senior living options in California, today released a whitepaper entitled “Five Key Trends Revolutionizing Senior Living Communities.” The paper provides an in-depth look at seniors’ and baby boomers’ desire for a more fulfilling lifestyle as they grow older and how this trend is driving several key developments in senior living communities.
By the year 2060, the United States Census Bureau estimates that the population of American adults 65 and over to reach a staggering 92.0 million. Currently, there are about 41.4 million adults 65 and over comprised primarily of the group commonly referred to as the Greatest Generation. “We are currently witnessing a paradigm shift in senior living communities, and these shifts are making active living communities a place where people look forward to retiring,” said Djena Graves Lennix, President of Accent on Seniors. “Tomorrow's active and assisted living communities will increasingly provide a wealth of activities and organized adventures, academic and hobby-based continuing education, as well as holistic health and wellness programs to foster a proactively healthy retirement.”
The paper describes five key trends that are changing the landscape of senior living communities in California and beyond: the expansion of health & wellness programs, lifelong learning programs, energy-efficient design, technology-enabled health monitoring, and enhanced memory care programs. Also, it explores the unprecedented demographic shifts behind current trends and American’s rapidly changing views on aging. The whitepaper references quantitative and qualitative analysis from a variety of sources, including the US Census Bureau’s Study on Aging, AARP, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
“We are seeing families become more selective in their preference for senior living communities that embrace active aging through innovative programs and modern amenities, “said Graves Lennix. “Operators of active and assisted living communities are responding to these demands by seniors and their baby boomer adult children for a more stimulating environment by building new senior living communities, renovating existing ones, and offering enhanced programs and services.”
”Collectively, these influential consumers are redefining acceptable standards across the senior living continuum with an emphasis on enhanced longevity and quality of life in independent living, assisted living, and even nursing homes and we expect this trend to continue,” said Graves Lennix.
