Appealing to the New Senior Living Consumer

The Senior Living Consumer is looking for greater options than the old CCRC model typically offers. In this session, Glen Tipton offers his personal experience as aging baby boomer who is enjoying an urban lifestyle in a mixed used community. He applies that experience to the growing demand by seniors for more intergenerational living options within an urban setting.
