Finding the Niche within Senior Housing Niche!

It's no longer enough to just say you want to build dementia care or assisted living for the market. What market? Niche developments are cropping up all over the United States and WMMS is working with some pretty unique ones. Seniors housing for Native Americans, a developmentally disabled assisted living community, a Lutheran Church Organization and university-based housing for a Liberal Arts College are just a few examples.

If you or someone you know is looking to do niche senior housing development, there are a few things you need to think about:

  • Geographic's : With a typical market area being relatively small – usually 3 to 5 miles – a niche community is far more complex to figure as it relates to drawing area
  • Demand from your constituents: Clients of WMMS in the religious sector have learned this lesson – some the hard way – that you won't capture 80 percent of your congregation’s aging population.
  • Brand message: How you brand and market the project will affect how much impact fringe niche groups will have on your project.

WMMS has worked with and continues to assist developers, organizations and operators who realize that a specific niche creates new market opportunities, but at the same time comes with a variety of feasibility, development, sales and marketing questions.

Home and Community-Based Services – Friend not Foe – A Case Study

Two of WMMS' current clients are Home Care Companies. Both had tried and failed in recent times to build their business with ties to senior housing. Both had failed. Why? Simple neither side knew what was in it for them.

The mobility of technology and healthcare is a game-changer for senior housing. Either you get on board or you’ll be left behind. And without partnership(s) with HCBS you are stuck behind the four wall of your community. Instead, it's time to look at the other side:

What's In It for Senior Housing:

  • Instead of allowing 5 or 6 home care agencies overrun your building you partner with one good one. Besides, 5 out of 6 or those companies don’t get you anyway.
  • Partnerships mean that that 95 percent of your database that sits idle is now instead partnering with "your home care agency partner" long before they move in.
  • Inside your four walls you now have a co-marketing partner –especially independent living where you struggle to find the service delivery

What's in it for Home Care Agencies:

  • A built in book of business – under one roof
  • Opportunity to work with the senior housing partner’s existing data base of targeted prospects
  • Cross-selling the two organizations’ continuum of care
  • There are numerous opportunities. Most important to you the senior housing provider, it gets you outside the four walls and connected with the market early on in the process – not just when the next emergency happens. It will be a critical strategic move as senior housing continues to grow in very different directions – that true stand-alone senior community will be just that in the future – Standing Alone!
