Across the United States, 29 percent of older adults make up the middle-income market. Earning between $25,000 and $50,000, this group makes too much to qualify for traditional affordable housing but too little to afford even market-rate senior housing. With the senior population expected to blossom with aging Baby Boomers, our industry doesn’t have a lot of time to develop affordable options for this cohort.

On June 20, we dove head-first into the topic of middle-market senior living, distilling the challenges and highlighting the opportunities available in this underserved market in our webinar “The Next Big Challenge – Serving the Middle Income Senior Housing Market.”
