ABOUT CHANGEMAKERS

The ability to change is separating the winners from the also-rans in senior living.

That’s because fundamental aspects of the business are rapidly evolving, and the future will look very different than today. Baby boomers will bring new expectations, payment models and referral patterns are shifting, technological innovation is transforming every facet of operations, new entrants are coming from other industries, and capital sources are becoming more numerous and sophisticated.

In this environment, the industry needs Changemakers more than ever. These are individuals who embrace the need to change and have the boldness and savvy to execute.

After careful consideration, Senior Housing News identified nine Changemakers and conducted in-depth interviews to learn what drives these pioneers who are shaping the future of senior living.

We are proud to introduce the first-ever class of Changemakers and share their stories here, in a series sponsored by Yardi.
