As we all know, the great baby boomers and their surrounding age group generation are becoming more predominant in today's time. Many people view this aging population and think about such problems as SSI or Healthcare, but what about housing. In certain parts of the United States, there is an increasing demand for some type of Senior Housing development. The baby boomers can be considered as there own class of people. As many approach the age of retirement or continue to strive past it, what plans are being arranged to secure housing for this class of people. Will there have to be an increase in the amount of nursing homes? Will the government increase funding or create new programs? Will America just wait to see what happens? Land developers should consider addressing this problem in the years to come before it becomes a big issue. Land developments should be tailored to meet the needs of a particular city or county. Of course, this rarely happens because most developments are made in an attempt to make money or fulfill a dream. However, every town, city, county, province, state, and governing body should have a broad view on future developments, with more than just economic relief. Maybe, an affordable senior housing development is needed in a place like the Historic Cloverdale region?
