Bob Kramer believes that, as difficult as it is, the pandemic is a “huge opportunity” that shouldn’t be wasted. He was invited to share his thoughts on the pandemic and its impact on seniors housing with Susan Ryan of The Green House Project in this week’s Elevate Eldercare podcast.
Kramer is the President and Founder of Nexus Insights. He is also the founder of the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing and Care (NIC) and now serves as its strategic advisor. Drawing on this background, as well as his experience as a state legislator, he explains why he thinks that boosting community-based services will be good for nursing homes, and why we shouldn’t lose sight of the importance of preventing social isolation and loneliness among elders during a crisis. He also tips his hat to those who work in the field, who should be proud of the great work they are doing.
Susan Ryan is the Senior Director of The Green House Project. Her weekly podcasts invite thought leaders with diverse perspectives for “uncomfortable conversations” about aging and the eldercare industry.
