Bengaluru is emerging as a hub for senior living communities as they have provided senior citizens with a safe haven.
Story so far: Experts believe that senior living communities are favourable for the demographic as they are vulnerable to many illnesses, especially the novel coronavirus. Senior citizens living in these communities are more sheltered as they do not have to fend for their needs by themselves.
- Senior living units have additional amenities and facilities close by thereby catering to their needs more efficiently.
- Adults aged 55 and above can comfortably live in these units independently as there are many senior-friendly amenities available.
Homogeneity: Unlike the Resident Welfare Association, residents of a senior living community take decisions based on homogeneity of needs and concerns. They take the whole community into account before making decisions. The environment offers convenient services and access to social activities.
