“New question: Should I fear growing old? This is one of the misconceptions of our times: research has proven globally that the happiest people are those 70 years of age and older.

“Though COVID-19 has given the industry a black eye, the industry is also presented with a unique opportunity to recover its reputation, reframe its aspirations, and offer hope on a wider scale. If it fails to seize this opportunity, senior living will be viewed by Boomers and others as ‘senior dying’- a place to be avoided at all costs.”
