    Bob Kramer: Matching the Expectations of Today's Seniors

    What needs to happen in senior housing to match the expectations of today’s seniors? Perhaps first, we start by addressing the declinist view of aging in society. By shifting the expectations for aging and growing older, we then change the lived experience, and that’s ultimately the goal within senior housing. In the coming years, we will see a collapse in the availability of adult children as caregivers and that means there’s going to be enormous demand for senior health services and housing – how will we meet that? There are three fundamental areas senior living operators and providers should focus on – the whole concept of aging, combating ageism, and next generation living should be on the radar now.

    In this podcast, Joel Theisen and Bob Kramer’s dialogue covers the intersection of health and home and where the opportunity really is within senior housing to get aging right. Listen in…

    Dr. Nick Schneeman: Geriatric Consult Anyone?

    Anyone? Bueller? You’re probably thinking – what is a geriatric consult? And you wouldn’t be wrong. The reality is, you can’t get one anywhere (except at Lifespark). Not in the ER, hospital, multi-specialty clinic. There’s no access to it. And yet, a geriatric consult is a simple opportunity to reach seniors and their families to tie together all the acute, chronic, and complex issues they may be facing in a way that promotes life and health. Having that human connection with those we serve is how we lower cost, improve experience, and improve health (quadruple aim anyone?).

    In this podcast, Joel Theisen and Dr. Nick Schneeman, family physician and geriatrician with over 40 years’ experience working with seniors and their families, talk through what a geriatric consult is, and why we need them. What’s even more surprising, the number of aging Baby Boomers over 65 is expected to double by 2030 with 2024 the apex of boomer retirement. And yet, there are only 7,300 geriatricians in the US – that’s one per every 10,000 senior. So, we ask the question again – Geriatric Consult Anyone? This is a huge opportunity for health systems, providers, payors, and anyone who serves seniors. We’ll have you asking for one in no time…
