As medical advances allow people to live longer, healthier lives, and as the baby boomer generation ages, the demand for senior living care will continuously increase. With this increased demand for senior living care and accommodations comes an increased supply of senior living facilities. For this reason, it is more important than ever to stand out from your competitors.
To this end, the best way to measure where you stand in the market is to evaluate both your communities and your competitors’ communities through collecting customer feedback and competitive market analysis information.
Collecting customer feedback on your communities is the best way to understand the full resident experience, the community’s ability to attract prospective residents, and the employees’ ability to sell the community features and benefits to prospective residents.
Collecting market analysis information on your competitors’ facilities is the best way to find out what they are doing exceptionally and how they are competing on price, which can give you a competitive edge and set you apart.
