Senior Housing Residents Live Longer!

It can be a big decision to relocate in your senior years. No move is an easy one, but it can be especially difficult to decide when it is time for you or a loved one to consider a senior living community. However there are many positives that are worth considering when it comes to senior housing.

The NORC* recently conducted a study supported by a NIC (National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care) grant. This study considered adults who moved into senior living communities in 2017 and who resided there for at least two years (or until their death) and compared them to a similar group of seniors who lived in the greater outside community. 

They uncovered some interesting findings that on average older adults who live in senior housing:

  1. Live longer

  2. Receive ten more days of home health care services

  3. Receive four more days of preventative and rehabilitation services

  4. Spend fewer days on anti-psychotic medications

These findings have implications for future research projects related to the positive metrics for seniors living in senior communities. The study did not break out the impact of what type of senior living communities, so future studies can look at the impacts of living in various types of communities such as independent living, assisted living, memory care, etc. To read more about the study and its findings click here.
