Senior living community operators indicated that wireless connectivity will help attract more residents within the next five years. Other specialty areas predicted to boom include home health services, wellness programs, web-based education and smaller and/or "green" communities, according to a new survey of 107 senior living organizations in 13 states. "It will not be business as usual for senior living communities in the years ahead. Senior living operators will need to identify their niche,” said Linda Hollinger-Smith, vice president, Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging, which released the survey results.
