Attracting Residents After COVID-19April 8, 2021
What you’ll learn:
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many seniors were in lockdown at home, unable to see their friends or relatives. But avoiding exposure to others put them at risk of another health issue: social isolation. Even before the pandemic, 43% of older adults living at home reported feeling lonely, according to NYU News. For those who live alone, the lack of companionship was even more pronounced.

Learn how your community can appeal to older adults seeking connections in a post-pandemic world.
