People live longer and healthier than ever before. Nowadays, retirement communities are vibrant centers of active and engaging seniors, who plan activities, social trips, insist on outstanding a la carte dining facilities and amenities you expect at luxury hotels. These people require a standard of living that reflects their modern lifestyles and expectations.
When looking at Senior Living Communities, they contain three important aspects of the hospitality industry: lodging, foodservice and entertainment. Managers of these properties must understand the fundamentals of hospitality along with the issues involved when people live in a group setting.
This concentration explores the competencies required to be a successful manager of a senior living community. Topics such as nutrition, psychology, governmental regulations, design considerations, event planning, financing options and marketing will be covered in relation to senior communities.
