We welcome your ideas and article proposals on how to reinvent the retirement residence industry, our new theme for the 2012 issue of Dialogue Plus.

Spring 2012 issue: Re-imagining the retirement residence industry

How is your residence community responding to the aging-in-place at home movement? How are you addressing the worry many seniors have that they cannot afford to live in residences such as yours? What strategies can you share about attracting the boomer market—many of whom have no interest in living in residences whose location moves them away from their current centre of influence?

Submit your ideas & article proposals on Re-imagining the Retirement Residence Industry. For example:

  • Beat the aging-in-place movement at its own game.
  • Re-invent your traditional age-denominated community to attract a new market.
  • Yes, you can offer one-of-a-kind amenities at a lower price point.
