HSL Communities CCRC of the Future Events @ Orchard Cove & NewBridge on the Charles
The CCRC of the Future – Where Do You See Yourself? At Hebrew SeniorLife, we’re always thinking about the future.  We know that what works for today’s generation of seniors may not work for the next.  Or maybe it will.  There are so many questions and answers to consider.Will the baby boomers want to live in communities like Orchard Cove and NewBridge on the Charles or will they choose to stay at home with services brought in? How important is fitness and wellness?  Will the next generation of seniors choose to live with others like themselves  or will they prefer diversity and inclusivity? What will the role of technology play in how we age? What is your vision of the life you want to lead in later years? What do you like best about our community for parents?  What would you change to meet your generation’s needs and wants? What are your most significant concerns as they relate to aging?  You're invited to help us answer these questions, consider the issues and plan for the future of our senior living initiatives. Please join us as we bring together senior living experts who will explore these questions and others.  We want to hear your voice.  Your thoughts, opinions and concerns will provide Hebrew SeniorLife with key input as we look to the future of not only the conintuing care retirement community model, but to the future of aging for the next generation. First Event & Location: Orchard Cove, Sunday May 15th  Brunch 11am Panel discussion 1:00 to 2:30pm.
