Brad Paulis, partner at Continuing Care Actuaries, shares how he partners with senior living providers to create new revenue and growth strategies.
In this episode, host Jennifer Drago interviews Brad Paulis, Partner at Continuing Care Actuaries, and learns about current trends in retirement living as well as how he helps clients to “vision” services in the future. They also discuss one of the most promising opportunities in our industry, Continuing Care at Home (CCAH) programs.
CCAH programs — which allow members to remain in their home, safely and independently while they age — give senior living providers an opportunity to serve more clients with their mission. These programs complement existing continuing care retirement communities, instead of compete with them.
Senior living providers, as well as advisors and vendors working with these providers, will gain information on current trends in benefits and costs among continuing care retirement communities. Brad discusses how utilization is shifting and how inflation has impacted these communities and their residents. Brad and Jennifer also discuss how CCAH programs work and why providers should take a good look at these models today!
