OPTIMISTIC OUTLOOK FOR ASSISTED LIVING. The nation’s largest assisted living providers believe that the sector will continue to benefit from several trends — among them the geographic separation of families (precluding “informal” caregiving) and that the supply of new assisted living is not growing at a pace equal to that of our older adult population.
The optimistic outlook is reported in Providermagazine’s annual “Top 40 Assisted Living Companies” profile, which observes that “The expansion of ancillary services and specialty care among assisted living providers continues at a steady pace this year.”
With Eskaton’s reported “total assisted living occupant capacity” of 843, the organization ranks 37th overall and fourth among California providers. More exclusively, though, Eskaton is one of only five nonprofit companies listed, and the only one based in California.
