Résumé :

This report describes selected trends in the assisted living industry. It is intended to supplement ongoing research being conducted as part of The National Study of Assisted Living. In this supplementary study, detailed interviews were conducted with 29 carefully selected persons from 21 states who are involved in various aspects of the development of assisted living facilities: architects, builders, developers, and consultants to the development industry. This report, the product of the interviews, provides preliminary information concerning barriers to the development of assisted living and future trends in the industry, as well as the potential for assisted living to serve a larger lower income and Medicaid-eligible population.

Key points stressed by those interviewed included the following:
- Policy-makers at all levels will face increasingly difficult decisions with respect to the design, regulation, and financing of assisted living, particularly regarding the extent to which assisted living should provide medical services to the frail elderly.
- The assisted living industry is growing rapidly, and some markets (e.g., high-end markets in many areas) may already be saturated.
- The "assisted living concept", widely discussed but inconsistently defined, is proving more difficult to execute well than many developers had thought; industry shakeouts are anticipated.
- Although a number of developers are working on ways to make assisted living more affordable, this is proving to be a substantial challenge.
- Rising acuity levels, already seen in the industry, will have a major impact on the design and fundamental concept of assisted living in the future.
- There was little agreement among those interviewed regarding how government policies should balance concerns of appropriate consumer protection versus overregulation of this emerging market.
