The California Department of Aging has prepared the California State Plan on
Aging – 2009-2013 to promote the independence and well-being of older
adults, adults with disabilities, and their families. These individuals may have
a variety of needs related to their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
At the same time, these individuals are resilient and have much to contribute
to their communities.
By 2020, persons age 60 and older will comprise nearly 20 percent of
California’s total population. Increasingly diverse groups of older adults and
adults with disabilities – adults who are determined to age in place and
fiercely guard their independence – will require us to examine how we deliver

California’s population of persons 60 and older has grown rapidly throughout
this century. Between 1950 and 2000, the number of older adults in this State
grew from 1.6 million to 4.7 million, an increase of 194 percent. This trend will
continue as the number of people age 60 and over grows to 14.6 million by
2050, an increase of 128 percent from 2010. By 2050, it is estimated that
nearly 25 percent of Californians will be 60 or older.
While approximately 628,000 Californians are 85 or older today, by 2050 an
estimated 2.9 million individuals will be in this age group, a dramatic 364
percent increase. This rapid growth has many implications for individuals,
families, communities, and government.

NIC MAP Data Also Shows Shrinking of Construction Pipeline

Annapolis, Md. – Occupancy rates fell for seniors housing in the first quarter of 2010, while rent growth continued but at a slower pace than seen in the previous two years, according to NIC MAP, a data and analysis service of the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry (NIC). The data for the top 31 metro markets also showed that a significant shrinking of the construction inventory pipeline continues, fueled by a combination of project openings and declining construction starts.

The average occupancy rate fell to 88.0% for seniors housing (both independent living and assisted living properties) during the first quarter of 2010, down from 88.3% in 4Q09. Specifically, the average occupancy rate was 87.9% for independent living properties and 88.1% for assisted living properties in 1Q10. In comparison, the average occupancy rate during 4Q09 was 88.2% percent for independent living properties and 88.4% for assisted living properties.

Independent living supply in the top 31 metro markets totaled 322,225 units in 1Q10, with 283,211 total occupied units. In the same quarter, assisted living supply totaled 174,010 units, with 153,330 total occupied units. The seniors housing inventory has grown 11,826 units during the previous four quarters, while absorption during that time has been 6,108 units.

“We’ve seen a general theme develop over the past few years,” said Michael Hargrave, vice president – NIC MAP. “There’s been erratic absorption over the last four quarters, and inventory growth has outpaced demand, but overall absorption has developed a marginally positive trend.”

In comparison, a long trend of negative absorption for skilled nursing disappeared in the first quarter of 2010 and became marginally positive. Skilled nursing occupancy rates rose to 89.0% in 1Q10, compared to 88.8% in 4Q09. During the previous eleven quarters, demand in this sector had consistently declined. “This was the first quarter of positive absorption in three years,” says Hargrave.

Current Unemployment Data affects Assisted Living

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Several experts have theories that Assisted Living and Residential Care for the Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE’s) occupancy has been linked to the unemployment rate.

Previous Stats ….According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are nearly 31 million people currently unemployed — that’s including those involuntarily working part time and those who want a job, but have given up on trying to find one. In the face of the worst economic upheaval since the Great Depression, millions of Americans are hurting. “The Decline: The Geography of a Recession,” as created by labor writer LaToya Egwuekwe, serves as a vivid representation of just how much. Watch the deteriorating transformation of the U.S. economy from January 2007 — approximately one year before the start of the recession — to the most recent unemployment data available today.
