Research and education are at the heart of great business planning and a great senior living feasibility study. Through thorough research, Senior Consulting has developed its own databases for Assisted Living Operators, Skilled Care Operators, Independent Living Operators, Industry Vendors and Senior Living Lenders.
Certain resources have enhanced value, including:
- National Investment Center for Seniors Housing and Care Industries (www.nic.org) – In addition to being the leading resource for senior living capital, NIC maintains databases of key industry indicators, by region.
- The American Health Care Association (www.ahca.org) is the leading national association for long term care providers and with which all or most state associations are affiliated.
- The Assisted Living Federation of America (www.alfa.org) is the largest national Assisted Living Association. Again, most state Assisted Living Associations are affiliated.
- LeadingAge (www.leadingage.org) is the largest association for a CCRC or Independent Living Operator and has many state affiliates.Independent Living resources are not as centrally located as they are for Skilled Nursing Facilities or Assisting Living Facilities.
Access to great information to make informed decisions requires great resources, but it also requires professional support that understands that the market expectations vary dramatically throughout the US and, therefore, a senior living operator or senior living developer must conduct thorough professional research and due diligence.
