    Amy Schectman, President and CEO, 2Life Communities

    2Life Communities President and CEO Amy Schectman knows too well how easy it is for middle-income older adults to fall between the cracks.

    That's why she and 2Life have come up with a new senior housing concept aimed at filling the middle-market "abyss." The concept, called Opus, is meant to reduce senior housing rates for older adults through a mix of volunteerism, centralized locations and partnerships with other health and senior care providers.

    In this episode of Transform, learn:
    - Why 2Life is branching out beyond affordable senior housing to serve the middle market
    - What Schectman believes it will take to significantly lower senior housing rent below market rates and how Opus will work
    - Why partnerships may be the key to keeping middle-market care costs low
    - How 2Life balances mission and margin in the age of Covid-19
