We recently signed a proposal for our 1,000th engagement to do a market study for Horst SeniorCare. Not only are we proud of that, but we feel it is particularly significant that this is not our 1,000th client. Like Horst, this number reflects the fact that so many of our clients return to us whenever they need our consulting services.
Over the last 25+ years, many communities that we have done studies for have been built and have thus enriched the lives of countless seniors and their families. The longevity of our staff is also something I’m proud of. In fact, one person has been with me so long that she can pass as a prospective resident when she visits competitive communities!
In related news, we congratulate our client Douglas Wilson Companies on breaking ground on their first senior housing community. Otay Ranch Senior Living is being developed in San Diego County’s Otay Ranch region and will include 80 assisted living units and 24 memory care units. The project broke ground in June of this year and is slated for completion in mid-2018.
