Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Norman, Oklahoma - Apr 26, 2016 - “You’re a retired senior. Your kids are grown and on their own. You are ready to give up climbing stairs, mowing lawns, fixing roofs and gutters, and worrying about the never-completed list of home maintenance items. It’s time to sell your suburban house, with more rooms — rooms to clean — than you need at this stage of life. But where will you live?” – Roger K. Lewis, writing for The Washington Post, 5/23/2014
Why Senior Housing?

There is a great need for seniors to have independent living, assisted living, or continuing care retirement community housing. These communities are much different than traditional nursing homes. Visions of people lying in hospital beds are often associated with “assisted living,” but today’s seniors deserve more options. Senior housing fills a niche for older adults who want to downsize or who need easy access to help with daily needs, but don’t need ‘round-the-clock skilled care and wish to continue active, social lifestyles.
133 Million Seniors by 2030
While there are over 30 million seniors in the U.S. today, estimates indicate that by 2030 (less than 15 years away) this number will grow to 133 million seniors, one in every five Americans! Peter Reuell of the Harvard Gazette warns that the US is woefully unprepared for the housing needs of an aging Baby Boomer population (9/2/14). As it stands now, the majority of seniors who need housing cannot afford it. Developers are ignoring this huge group in need, preferring instead to build for the smaller, wealthier crowd. Options are particularly limited in the southern Midwest: Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Texas.
Affordable Options for Seniors
Based out of Norman, Oklahoma, Boomer Consulting and Austin Construction care about seniors. With many years of hands-on experience and a clear understanding of what seniors need, their Senior Communities and Senior Homes plans offer seniors reasonable options. Austin takes the stance of building quality homes with a clear model for sustainability, affordability for seniors, and for investors, an ongoing revenue stream for years to come. The senior community model is easily duplicable, allowing investors to reinvest their income into new communities and centers.
The Time to Act is Now
With the current and expanding demand, the time to take action is now. This is a rapidly growing issue due to the first round of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age. The long-term growth of this industry will likely follow along with the growth in the population of seniors who want a safe place to live while also maintaining quality of life. Seniors interested in housing options in the Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas or Texas region, or investors looking to help fulfill this need, may contact Boomer Consulting through www.austingc.com or at (405) 945-9999.
