Perceptions of COVID-19 Affect Future of Senior Living

A recent article by McKnight’s Senior Living discussed how adult perceptions of senior living due to COVID-19 will affect the future of senior living. Several surveys have been conducted in senior living communities, where residents indicate “they felt very safe and secure in their retirement community,” and the community received “high marks for cleaning and sanitation and being better equipped to deal with the challenges associated with COVID-19 than home.”

These surveys show that perceptions around senior living hasn’t been heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, hopefully securing the future of senior living. However, “prospective residents did . . . exhibit a decrease in likelihood to move to a retirement community due to COVID-19.” This shows a difference between current and prospective perspectives, potentially showing a lack of “information regarding safety protocols and how policies would affect their overall lifestyle.”
