During the week of August 6, 2012 the content staff of will be spotlighting a new topic in their Senior Center. The Senior Center, which has been a home for information regarding retirement and baby boomers senior living, will be focusing on niche retirement communities. These types of communities have been in the news in recent weeks as an example of the changing faces of senior living.

Niche communities have a lot to offer to baby boomers who are reaching their retirement years and to seniors looking for more than what standard assisted living and senior communities provide. These communities offer a wide range of services that are centered around a particular hobby or lifestyle. In the weekly Senior Center content meeting, content manager Megan Coogle and senior marketing manager James Connolly discussed the new spotlight at length with the content staff.

Says Connolly, “Assisted living is changing to accommodate the new baby boomers or as they are referred to in assisted living circles the “Silver Tsunami”. The “Golden Boomers” or “Silver Tsumani” seniors are looking for a little bit more from their senior retirement and assisted living communities. For this reason, many communities have stepped up and are now offering real estate in what they have termed as a niche retirement community. These communities offer lifestyles in a particular niche such as artisan communities, golf communities, yoga communities, spiritual communities and LGBT communities. The need for these communities has been long coming for seniors, especially those in the LGBT community. We want to spotlight the niche retirement communities to, not only show how assisted living is changing, but also to show our readers the options available to them.”
