What’s a bigger threat to your organization, the new Life Plan Community on the corner or Uber’s drivers-on-demand? What about unseen opportunities? The landscape surrounding the senior living field is changing in significant ways, presenting both new opportunities and unforeseen challenges.

Providers need to prepare for changing demographics, significantly new consumer expectations, intensifying competition, constant innovation, and an influx of major for-profit entities creating new options for the senior living consumer. The webinar will share key national trends in the senior living field and in society-at-large, along with economic developments that a provider must address if it wants to be prepared for the future. The webinar will reach beyond familiar industry themes to understand the next generation of opportunities and disruptors to traditional senior living
