WALTHAM, MA–Boston Real Estate Times, the region’s integrated online, print and video real estate magazine, announced that Senior Living Residences founder and CEO Robert Larkin will be the featured speaker at the 9th Annual Boston Senior Living Summit on Feb. 13 at Westin Hotel in Waltham, MA.

Mr. Larkin is credited with developing one of the first assisted living communities in Massachusetts. The summit is organized by the Boston Real Estate Times, area’s premier source of commercial real estate news and information.

Among the topics discussed this year include: rising healthcare costs, an ageing population, increased longevity, recent boom in senior living market and other key questions about the state of the senior living industry in 2019 and beyond. How does 2019 and beyond look like for assisted living, senior housing and health rehabilitation centers? Despite the demand, why has occupancy fell or remained flat and why were construction starts lower than expected in 2018?

According to the National Investment Center (NIC), inclusive of market rate properties with at least 25 units/beds, there are currently about 2.9 million units in slightly less than 22,100 seniors housing and care properties in the United States. The total market capitalization of this investment seniors housing and care property market is estimated to be between $250 billion and $270 billion.

Based on 2010 population estimates, over 20% of the 12 million households headed by persons at least 75 years old reside in seniors housing and care properties, according to the NIC.
