The long-term care industry has a real opportunity to look at the issues around health and wellness, and how to keep older adults in good shape. The post-acute space is one of the key areas getting attention, which gives builders and equity partners a way to rethink how those services will look in the future.

As people begin to need more services “the option of having a graduated level of support is even more important. Clearly people would like to age in place and stay independent as long as possible. The idea is to wrap care around people at the level they need, not forcing them to be totally independent or totally dependent. There will be a significant need for a diversified portfolio.”

-Former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
