White Papers

Care Purchasing Services offers experience and expertise in a variety of subject areas. One way we share that with our partners is via white papers. Our most recent white paper is on master planning for the long-term success of a community.

This 3-step process helps ensure long-term viability and market position. Every senior living community reaches a point in its life cycle at which it could start to decline. This can sometimes be as soon as 10 years after opening. Capital improvements must be made to sustain the community’s appeal and viability.

Master planning can help your community attract a new generation of residents and ensure its continued relevance in the marketplace.

Built on the goals identified in the strategic planning process, master planning takes a high-level look at the senior living community to provide a long-term vision for capital improvements. During the master planning process, stakeholders participate in guided planning sessions, robust discussions and group collaboration to plan for the future.

The white paper, “Master Planning: Essential Roadmap for Senior Living Communities,” will help owners and board members develop a deliberate, thoughtful, systematic, and financially prudent approach to solutions to maintain market position.

Download the white paper now to help prepare for the future and ensure the continued success of your senior living community!
