    While no corner of the real estate universe has been left untouched by the recent pandemic, seniors housing might be one of the most affected.
    As the pandemic recedes and America’s Baby Boomers continue to age, external influences are changing the way we think about housing our older generations. Urban vs. suburban, labor shortages, construction costs and supply chain issues are universal influences on the built environment.

    Join us as we dig deeper into how seniors housing is changing as owners become proactive, creative and nimble to anticipate the evolving demands within this space.
