In the senior living business and at Griffin Living especially, we focus on the vibrancy of our residents: the unique opportunities that time, experience, and mature families present that most people don’t get to have earlier in life. That’s a wonderful thing. But a thought-provoking conversation with Hanh Brown on her podcast Boomer Living made me reflect on the grief that residents and their families are experiencing when they look at senior living options.

A large number of our residents move to assisted living after a death, which means…

This will help seniors who live in community and require help from others to meet their basic needs to stay safe

This week, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) advised that people over 75 be next in line for the COVID vaccine after healthcare workers and long term care residents.

According to Wall Street Journal reporting, this was a difficult decision for the ACIP, who were debating whether essential workers, whose jobs put them at risk of exposure, would be prioritized over seniors, whose age puts them at risk of complications if infected. …

While they face some similar challenges in a pandemic, these are distinct operations.

It was a tough day in the senior housing and care business when a New York Times headline proclaimed nursing homes “death pits” in April during the COVID-19 crisis. The article cited that nearly a third of coronavirus deaths in the United States were in senior housing facilities.

With robust and innovative safety measures in place, senior living facilities at Griffin Living remain COVID free.

How can this be? It’s partly a matter of distinguishing types of senior living. Numerous reports…

COVID-19 is exacerbating the senior housing crisis in America. At Griffin Living, we are taking action so that proper care may be provided to the people who need it most.

Long before COVID-19 became the most pressing issue on everyone’s minds, our team at Griffin Living had been studying another crisis: the shortage of suitable housing for American seniors in urban and suburban areas.

For the last ten years, we have been researching the evolving needs of American families as their loved ones age, and building modern, well-appointed assisted living centers in which seniors can comfortably retire. …

We believe that some of the best years of seniors’ lives are ahead of them. So we are reimagining the way that senior housing is experienced.

When I first started looking into the senior housing business for Griffin Living, I’ve visited a number of facilities to evaluate senior housing standards and try to shoot higher and become a top assisted living community builder.

Though our holidays may look different this year than in the past, they remain important to all of us, no matter what age we are. In other years, children would be off from school, college students coming home, and families reuniting. This year was a very different situation for everyone. With Thanksgiving just passed and Christmas coming in a few weeks, we have been thinking carefully about…
