Disruption is the buzzword used when existing solutions can be disturbed by new, innovative solutions ― sometimes quickly and violently. An environment is primed for disruption when existing market participants are unable to view themselves in a way that is distinct from their current industry.

These service providers view their position in the marketplace and the needs for their services as static and defendable and, as a result, underestimate the potential for disruption from those seeking to displace them. In response to this risk of disruption, we are asking senior living organizations this simple question: What business are you really in?

We see tremendous potential for disruption within the current senior living environment. Our hope is that the 2018 CLA Senior Living Trends will challenge the thinking of providers and their boards as they attempt to position their organizations for success in the future.
