1. What are the stats on people who live in assisted living?
“There are 36400 residences in the US that call themselves assisted living, housing just over one million people. The typical resident is an 83-year-old widow, more likely white than black, and more likely paying privately. The average size is 43 units. Residents of assisted living, on average, stay in the facility for close to three years, with a third moving on to a nursing home, 28 percent dying, 12 percent moving in with family members, and 14 percent switching to a different assisted living facility.” Page 160
