 On Point • Senior Living Sector in India

The senior living sector in India is at a crossroad. With the recent relaxation of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) restrictions on investments in the sector and a population of seniors (nearly 100 million seniors in India now) to cater to in the coming decades, there clearly exists an untapped opportunity for investment and development in this sector. Unlike western countries where the senior living industry has gained maturity, India provides an opportunity to developers, service providers, healthcare players and operators to create solutions specific to India while leveraging learning from across the world. In this white paper, we showcase seniors in India as a demographic segment, bring out key trends in senior housing in India, assess overall market potential, focus on best practices, and bring out for the first time a pan-India preview of senior living projects in India. Jones Lang LaSalle intends to keep this white paper at an introductory level and will bring out subsequent editions providing more in-depth analysis of specific aspects of senior living.

Senior Housing Segment in a Global Context

Increasing life expectancy, decreasing fertility rate, lower mortality rates and an overall enhancement of the standard of living across the world has contributed to people living longer than ever before. In 2008 as per the National Institute of Aging (USA), it was estimated that the senior population (above 60 years of age) in the world was 506 million. The population of seniors across the world is projected to become 1.3 billion by 2040. This increase in population in the segment will bring with it unique socio–demographic situations which have not been experienced by society at large. For the first time in human history in 2021, the total number of seniors will be greater than the number of kids below 5 years of age. While developed nations will still have a large number of seniors, the rate of growth in senior population in developing nations will be double that of developed nations. The 80+ age segment is actually the fastest growing segment amongst population cohorts in several nations. China and India are projected to have almost 50% of the 1.3 billion worldwide seniors by 2040.

amongst urban households, who in the last 20 years have witnessed a marked increase in nuclear families1, that families are no longer equipped to take care of their aged family members. In this changing social environment, concepts such contemporary retirement resorts are becoming acceptable and popular. While this has prompted developers to come up with projects targeting the independent seniors, the country is yet to see integrated continuing care retirement communities.

Seniors need specialized housing catering to their needs. What started in early 19th century in the USA to cater to housing for seniors mainly through the interventions of religious groups and charitable bodies is now recognized in the USA as a prominent asset class. Senior housing is a USD 25 billion industry worldwide. In USA alone there are over 2,000 senior housing projects with over 500,000 residents. While the sector commands large numbers, it is also important to get a sense that only about 12% of seniors in the USA live in formal senior living projects and less than 4% stay in Australia. In contrast to senior living in the west, the concept of housing for seniors as a specific asset class in India continues to have social stigma associated with it which has restricted the growth of the sector at large. There is, however, now a growing realization 1

As per the findings by National Family Health Survey in 2005-06 (NFHS-3), every three out of five households (about 63%) in India are nuclear.

On Point • Senior Living Sector in India 

Although India is still younger than USA and Japan from a demographic standpoint, the process of ageing has begun in the country. It is anticipated that the elders in India would increase both in absolute numbers and relative strength, indicating a gradual swing to a senior population. As per Census of India projections, the percentage of elders as a percentage of total population in the country would jump from 7.4% in 2001 to 12.4% in 2026 and touch 19.7% in 2050 (Figure 1). In 2011, India had about 76 million seniors above the age of 60 years and it is expected that this figure will grow to 173 million by 2025, further increasing to about 240 million by 2050. This marked increase in elderly population would involve a change in an important sociological aspect, the ‘old age dependency ratio’. Interestingly, by 2050, it is estimated that the number of dependent adults in India will be at par with the number of dependent children. The population pyramid shows that the movement of the bulge in the population northwards to higher age cohorts with time (Figure 3). Besides growth in sheer numbers, seniors are also evolving as a customer segment and have needs and wants, which are different from seniors in earlier times. A significant section of seniors today are independent, financially stable, well-travelled, socially connected, and as a result have well developed thoughts of how they want to spend time after retirement. There is, today, a larger percentage of educated seniors than ever before in India (Figure 2).

Seniors now consider life after retirement as an opportunity to spend more time with families, pursue hobbies, develop new interests or even continue working or starting a new career. While it is true that the seniors are more independent and better equipped to take decisions post their retirement, it is equally correct to say that their needs are not rightly understood and therefore not met appropriately by both public and private sector at large. The senior community presents a tremendous opportunity to service providers and entrepreneurs to not only innovate on their housing needs but addressing their various lifestyle service and product needs.

Addressing Needs of the Senior Population

Figure 4: Needs of the Senior Population

Besides catering to basic needs such as housing, nutrition, security and convenience aspects, solutions for housing for seniors across the world are now addressing the wellness needs of the seniors, providing better and preventive healthcare, engagement, companionship and planning for higher levels of resident dignity and independence. ‘Wellness’ as a perceivable need is transforming from just physical wellness to encompass financial, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and environmental wellness. Seniors in India are typically taken care of by their children or family members. With younger generations traveling to different parts of the country and abroad, a large segment of seniors today are staying alone. Seniors staying alone in Indian cities in traditional housing expose themselves to risk of urban crime besides taking on the myriad hassles of day-to-day living in an urban ecosystem which is not sensitive to their requirements. Healthcare remains as one of the most important needs for seniors. Seniors are more prone to get affected by ill health than younger groups. Ageing is usually always accompanied by various physical and mental ailments. Thus, healthcare considerations must be kept paramount when looking at housing solutions for seniors. In India, healthcare groups can play an active role in the senior living industry either venturing into the space on their own or partnering with corporate developers serious on the senior living sector from a long term perspective. It is imperative that real estate developers understand and acknowledge the unique necessities of the elderly while catering to the sector. The aged population faces numerous issues, typical of the sunset years of their lives. The growing sense of insecurity, loneliness, fear of obsolescence within the family, increasing

physical disability, difficulty to access transport, quality healthcare and geriatric care, complexity in conducting the daily chores of family life are some of the several issues that the aged often face. These, compounded by poor accessibility to government and other support systems, insurance and legal assistance create severe problems for seniors. The real estate environment being developed for seniors should recognize and address these issues to ensure comfort to and compatibility with this special population group. It should also keep in mind sensitivities to unique Indian cultural aspects regarding how seniors are treated in India and offer community life upholding their sense of respect and self-esteem.

Key Challenges in the Senior Living Sector in India Social Stigma The largest stumbling block for senior living in India is the social stigma attached with the concept. While senior living projects like Athashree in Pune has seen an increased acceptance of the concept in the community, a lot more needs to be done to make the concept acceptable to larger sections. Entry of professional and reputed corporate groups developing lifestyle senior housing projects with a strong emphasis on service delivery rather than real estate will change the perception of such projects and shift the positioning from social stigma to an ‘aspirational project’ to be in.

Affordability Despite demand, senior living in India is far from a flourishing reality owing to issues of affordability. Divided between diminishing finances post-retirement and an aspiration to live independently, the higher perceived operating expenditures of a senior housing community reduce seniors’ interest in such projects. As per research undertaken by Jones Lang LaSalle, ‘viable’ operating expenditures in a senior living facility will range anywhere between INR 15,000 – 25,000 per month at the standard level and INR 35,000 - 45000 per month per couple at the luxury level (inclusive of food, security, common utilities, engagements, activities, preventive wellness, common transport but excluding medicines, unit level utilities, and real estate costs).

Manpower Senior care requires trained manpower at various levels from doctors trained in areas of geriatric sciences, paramedical staff, care workers, and professionals who have working experience in designing, executing and operating senior living projects. In absence of trained senior care manpower, current housing solution providers often use people from hospitality and healthcare background. While this is a good start point, there is a need to setup focused institutions and spread awareness of the sector as a viable career option offering tremendous opportunities in the long run.

Legal Framework Though “The Maintenance And Welfare Of Parents And Senior Citizens Bill 2007” provisions for the maintenance and welfare of parents and senior citizens, the country is yet to see any major progressive legislation in areas of senior living standards, service standards, financial products, legal support etc. There is a need to bring in innovations in provisions related to reverse mortgage and

On Point • Senior Living Sector in India 

other financial innovations which can have a far reaching impact on the sector. There is also need to offer incentives on FSI to further motivate real estate developers entering the sector.

Levels of Care in Senior Housing Facilities

As seniors move from being ‘young seniors’ to ‘elder seniors’ from their 60’s to 80’s, the needs of seniors undergo radical changes. As a result, housing solutions which work when the senior is fit mentally and physically will start failing when the person needs higher levels of care and is facing age-related health changes like vision / hearing impairment, arthritis, and forms of dementia. Taking this into consideration, senior living projects globally propose a concept of ‘age in place’ where all required facilities are present within the same campus so that the senior does not have to move out of the campus with age.

Independent Living The continuum of care for seniors begins with Independent Living (IL). Typically, an IL unit is not different from traditional housing but is better designed from an architecture standpoint with various design interventions taking care of seniors. These could range from better lighting, mobility facilitation, and aspects of universal design. Bathrooms and kitchens are designed to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers, hallways and doors are wider and tiles and flooring are anti-skid. Socialization plays an important role in uplifting the atmosphere of the IL and improving the health stature of the residents.

Assisted Living Assisted Living (AL) units allow residents to have access to care workers who can assist the residents in day-to-day activities. It is possible in the Indian context to merge IL and AL and having provision for care worker rooms within the IL units. Such care worker units could double as an office in the younger stage and allow for a 24/7 care worker stay if required in later years. Both in IL and AL, residents have access to short and long term nursing needs, if and when necessitated, while enjoying the environment similar to their home. This reduces the need to travel to hospitals and also instills a healthy form of lifestyle so as to slow effects of ageing.

Skilled Nursing Care Skilled Nursing Care (SNC) provides residents with nursing care facility. It has provision for taking care of physical or mental disabilities and the residents are provided with physical, occupational and rehabilitative therapies. Services increase considerably in

this stage – with availability of nursing aides and assistants; physical, occupational and speech therapists; social workers and recreational assistants; and transportation. Greater care is required in a timely and appropriate manner. The prime objective during this stage is to provide a holistic and yet home-like environment to the residents.

Top 6 Age Related Changes Hearing impairment Failing vision Osteoporosis & Arthritis Diabetes & Hypertension Cardiac disorders Dementia in various forms

Progressive projects now allow IL, AL and SNC and optionally Alzheimer care facilities all within one campus – however, they may be phased over a period of time. This allows for a continuum of care and residents benefit from having all facilities in one campus-like environment. Such facilities get termed as Continuing Care Retirement Communities. CCRC’s are yet to see a presence in India although a few corporate groups have now designed blue prints to come up with such projects. Figure 6: Levels of Care in Senior Housing Facilities

Formats of Senior Housing Facilities

Senior housing formats vary from small scale Urban Formats to large scale Suburban Formats. Due to lack of availability of land parcels within the city, the urban formats are typically planned vertically, while suburban formats are low-rise developments spread over a larger expanse.

Small scale CCRCs, spread over 1-4

Mid-scale CCRCs, spread over 4-10 acres, are peri-urban formats. These can be located within the city limits or on the peripheral locations. They can be apartments, independent houses or villas replete with all amenities which can be stacked floor-wise or spread out or a mix of both.

acres, are urban formats. Typically, these are located within city limits and are vertical in design owing to lack of space for spreading out. All the amenities are stacked floor-wise and are within easy reach of the residents. A vertical CCRC is increasingly correlated with urban spaces and gives the occupant the feeling of an active lifestyle. There is a heightened sense of social–connect, interaction and security, since all the residents stay close to each other.

Sub-Urban Formats

Large scale CCRCs, from 10 acres to 50 – 60 acres are typically sub-urban formats. These are communities with large expanse of spaces for amenities and independent houses for the residents. Due to lack of space within the city, these are located at the outskirts and provide all amenities within the campus itself. The target audience for this kind of development is seniors looking for larger spaces. Low rise CCRCs offer large open green spaces, are typically self sufficient in all aspects – amenities and healthcare within the campus; and do not require the residents to travel out of the campus often.

Is your Site Suitable for a Senior Living Facility? What Factors are Important?

Senior living projects are specialized projects and therefore have unique location requirements which can make a difference between an average and a successful project. Most Indian cities have options in growth corridors to locate a senior living project. However, factors such as availability of healthcare, social ecosystem, connectivity besides the aesthetics of the site ecosystem continue to play a major role in selection by senior residents. Figure 8: Factors to Consider While Selecting a Location for Building a Senior Living Facility

Lower traffic congestion, lower density, lower presence of polluting industries etc for locations within the corridors have a positive effect on selecting a location for seniors.

Spread, quality of and access to educational facilities play a role in selection of a project. In many cases, presence of such institutions offer residents an opportunity to work and also learn new skills.

Access to employment hubs and facilities play a strong role since seniors especially in the independent living stage want to stay employed even if it is part-time or consultative employment.

A suitable location for setting up a CCRC is one which scores high on the positive attributes such as healthcare accessibility, social ecosystem and connectivity; and low on negative attributes such as land value, congestion and crime index. Healthcare accessibility, social ecosystem and connectivity are important considerations for the seniors and hold higher weightage. The good thing about senior living is that it is possible to move out of the city into more affordable zones. However, the developer has to be cautious that the project does not go too much off the social and economic connect of the city in which case the project will face difficulties from an occupancy perspective.

Senior Living – What is the Demand for Senior Living in India?

Demand for senior living comes from a variety of customer segments with varying needs and wants. However, primarily the need for better healthcare in old age, secure surroundings, and a social support system designed to take care of the senior are prime drivers for demand for such assets. The four primary types of customers as per our research are: Figure 9: Types of Senior Living Occupants

Assessing Demand for Senior Housing in India

In terms of market numbers, in an analysis of 135 urban cities / towns in India with a total population of 223 million and total 52 million households, households with seniors represent 12.8 million households (24.6%). Of these 12.8 million senior households, the demand for formal senior living facilities from varying SEC and income typologies will be about 312,000 units. The break up of these 312,000 units per SEC, Income and geography is shown in Figure 10, 11, 12 and 13. Typically the ticket price for high-income senior units would be between INR 50 – 75 lakhs or above, mid-income will be INR 25 – 50 Lakhs, low-income between 10 – 25 Lakhs and BOP below INR 10 lakhs.

Senior Living Supply in India Where are projects coming up? There has been a marked increase in the number of senior living projects in the last five years with growing acceptability and demand in the sector. Geographically, senior living projects are coming up in the suburbs of all key metros in the country and in some selected destinations such as Coimbatore, Goa and Dehradun which have traditionally been retirement towns. The annexure of this paper presents a brief of several major projects coming in the country.

Who are the players building such projects? Private entities who have already made a foray into the sector are Ashiana Group of Builders, Paranjape Schemes, Impact Senior Living Estate, Covai Properties, Brindavan Senior Citizen Foundation and Classic Promoters, among others. Their projects are already operational in major metros like NCR-Delhi, Pune, Bangalore, Amritsar, Coimbatore and Chennai. LIC Housing Finance entered the sector with Care Homes at Bangalore as a part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives. Apart from these, there are charitable organizations working in the sector. Some of India’s reputed corporate groups have also started building their business plans to start senior housing projects.

What is the nature of supply? Majority of these developments have 50-100 units in the form of residential complexes, with larger ones having over 400 units. The typology of units varies from 1 BHK-3 BHK units, villas and studio apartments. The typical size of these units range from 500 sq ft to 2,500 sq ft super built-up (saleable) area. These units are offered under various sale models – outright sale, upfront deposit and lease. Most of the projects are at the affordable levels with figures less than INR 3,300,000 bearing the fact that the end consumers are senior citizens. However, there has been a recent shift with more mid and high-end projects being launched in the market showing signs of maturity of the sector and growing confidence among the developers to launch niche projects. The charts (Figure 14 and 15) show market segmentation based on pricing, unit sizes and financial model.

Top 10 Best Practices for success in the Senior Living Sector

As in any service-focused industry, success in senior living will be determined from the strength of ‘soft’ service related factors rather than ‘hard’ factors of real estate. While amenities can be created with capital, it is how they are managed and the service delivery arrangements which will determine the quality of the brand. The players in India who are already in the sector have a clear headstart in delivering on the requirements of seniors. In the long run, the differentiator for brands and their premium will be from how the service delivery is executed on ground and not on hard aspects. 10 key best practices which will work for a group interested to enter the senior housing sector or strengthen their presence in the sector are: 1. Strong professional management team: The management team of the senior living project is the face of the brand - recognized and correlated with by seniors. A good mix of leaders from various professional backgrounds in operations, finance, strategy and experience in hospitality, healthcare or senior living will be required for delivery. 2. Senior living knowledge and operator partner: While senior living concepts from west may not be replicable in India in entirety, there is a wealth of wisdom in the form of processes that exist with international operators of senior housing. It will be a good idea to

tie up with an experienced entity either as a knowledge partner or an operating partner. 3. Healthcare partner: A renowned healthcare partner catering to the healthcare requirements of the seniors preferably with specialization in geriatrics and focus on preventive healthcare will be mandatory. 4. Location of the project: Location remains an important consideration while developing a senior living project. Seniors require safety and a feeling of being well connected to their social circle. Although sites located in the peripheral areas offer peace and serenity, care should be taken that it is equally well connected to social nodes of the city and does not give a sense of being too far from the city. 5. Variety of disposal models and pricing: Some seniors will be rich in liquidity but poor in asset ownership and others will be asset-rich but poor in liquidity. As a result of this variance, good projects will offer multiple models of disposal and financing which offer customers an opportunity to customize his financing model accordingly. 6. Design innovations, unit & project layout: Architectural aspects such as anti-skid flooring, grab bars, lighting systems, and layout of the project are some of the basic features in senior housing projects. However, the subject of design for aging has become quite specialized and innovations in design can be sought from experts.

16 On Point • Senior Living Sector in India

7. Senior living architects and consultants: It is recommended to go for architects with established practice in senior living and particularly those who have worked in the Asian region. A quick check in Association of Architects Department of Aging will provide insights on architects who specialize in this space. 8. Focus groups & market research: It is vital to undertake detailed and comprehensive market research on local trends and perceptions in the senior living space. Senior living needs perceived in Coimbatore has differences from those in Amritsar and a market research process with stress on quantitative surveys backed by qualitative focus group discussions is vital to make the product mix correct. 9. Branding and marketing strategy: Branding will play a vital role in the success of a senior living project. An experienced brand agency with experience in establishing service businesses and experience in real estate will help develop and nurture the senior living brand. The marketing strategy will have to use innovative techniques using social networking channels, word of mouth, NRI marketing channels, and target on very select customer profiles 10. Services amenities & product mix: A carefully thought out service & product mix, unit sizing, unit pricing, facilities and amenities catering to local tastes while keeping global best practices in mind will help position the project well.

Financial Models and Disposal Mechanisms for Senior Living in India Globally, there are various variants of how a senior can enter a senior living project such as deposit model (with variants which range from one time complete payment all inclusive to partially inclusive to a-la-carte per pay use models), equity ownership models, lease models etc. In India, the sale model will remain the most popular model in the industry till the time more sophisticated versions start getting accepted in the market. At the INR 10 – 20 lakh price point levels, it is possible to introduce refundable deposit models which allow for developers to bring in smaller size units to the market. Deposit models typically do not work if the ticket size becomes above INR 20 lakhs. In the case of sale based model, it is possible to get a premium to the ongoing market real estate markets by developing a good lifestyle senior living project following the best practices as mentioned earlier. It is also recommended that a percentage of units are kept on a rental model even if it brings down the overall project returns so as to allow community to build up. In the senior living business, it is possible to get good returns by adopting best practices. However, on the long run, the promoters must also look at optimizing the returns in such a way so as to

allow development of occupancy in the setup. Typically, a 100% sale model promotes speculative buying and it is possible that on commissioning a large percentage of the housing remains vacant. While this is something that is not possible to completely eradicate, a careful phasing plan and a well thought out mix of units between sale and lease will not only ensure financial returns are viable but will make the community come to fruition and increase price points for further phases.

Further, it allows the developer to match the phasing of construction with sale.

• Returns: This model helps the developer to offload the residential stock in the market and thus achieve quicker and higher returns. Further, the payback periods are shortest and project returns in a sale model are the highest due to early cash flows.

• Low Occupancy: The proposed concept of senior living community is aimed at encouraging the occupancy of residential stock by end users. The holistic development of community, interaction between the residents, success of facilities offered and optimization of cost grows with the growth in occupancy.

• Capital Appreciation: Senior living communities is a new concept in Indian markets. The growth in value and capital appreciation of project depends a lot on developer’s vision, expertise and commitment to deliver in addition to normal real estate growth. • Financing: Since the title is transferred to buyer in a Transfer of ownership in a sale model doesn’t sale model, it is easier for buyers to raise bank loan allow the developer to enjoy a share in capital and other forms of financing. appreciation. • Title Security: The proposed concept of senior • Lack of Control: Transfer of ownership to end living community is targeted at the senior aged user dilutes the control of developer over the population.

This enhances the customer preferences.

Lease Deposit Model (A percentage of the capital value is taken upfront and the rest is paid in the form of monthly rentals over the period of stay)

• Allows Flexibility in Payments: This model allows the flexibility of payments for entry cost into the project. Customers can enter the project with an upfront fee followed by regular lease rentals. • Lowers Price Entry points: End users can enter the project by paying an upfront premium which is generally 60-70 % of the market value of the unit and the rest is paid in the form of rentals over the period of stay in the project. Thus, this model allows lowering the entry cost. • Allows developer to benefit from Capital Appreciation: The model allows the developer to retain some percentage of the unit and therefore the appreciation of the unit remains with the developer.

Pure Rental Model (No upfront deposit paid while resident period monthly rentals over the period of stay with a nominal security deposit)

• Occupancy Assurance: This model ensures that those subscribing for the project are most likely to occupy the units. It allows customers to keep their existing real estate assets, place the same on rent and allow a rental spread to stay in the senior living project. • Control on Project: The complete ownership is retained by the developer in the project; it offers maximum control over the project.

• Low Returns: Since complete market value of residential units is not recovered at the time of sale this model offers lower returns in comparison to a sale model. Further the rental payments are spread out over years, which impact the present value of cash flows resulting in lower project returns. • Acceptability to Deposits / Leasing: Customer acceptability to deposits in a real estate investment becomes a concern. • Payback: Lower upfront cash flows and spread out payments over the years leads to stretched payback period from a financial feasibility perspective.

• Lowest Return: This model offers the lowest level of returns in the project since there is no upfront payment and lease rental yields are around 3 – 4% in India which cannot make a project viable in India. • Higher Switching Behavior: Since residents have least stakes attached in the project, it allows them to easily switch over to other projects and locations.

• High Financial Exposure: The entire risk of capital investment in the project is borne by the developer. • Capital Appreciation Benefit: Complete ownership Further, there are no revenues in the form of of residential units allows the developer to enjoy bookings or construction linked absorption plans complete benefits of capital appreciation in the value until the project is complete and delivered. of units.

The Road Ahead

The senior living industry in India is poised for significant growth in the coming years. As with any new industry, the senior living industry is expected to see the entry of players from various backgrounds, predominantly from the real estate sector. Jones Lang LaSalle views the following key trends to emerge in the coming 24 – 36 months in the senior living industry and presents its recommendations to enable the industry achieve higher quality and satisfaction from its clients.

Industry Trends • Increased sophistication and product improvement by existing senior living players: Developers such as Ashiana and Athashree have extremely good working experience with seniors in India. This learning curve, built over a period of time, allows them to be perfectly poised to bring out product innovations over their already established brand presence. • New market entrants: The market will witness regional real estate developers and a few corporate pan India real estate developer brands experimenting with a senior living solution as part of a mixed-use residential project to explore the market potential before launching fullscale retirement projects. There is a period of ‘wait and watch others’ expected for another 2 – 3 years. • Entry of corporate firms: The sector is expected to attract participation from corporate firms, which are currently active in healthcare, hospitality, insurance, and other service related sectors. The current market has predominantly participation from firms having a background in real estate development. • Partnerships between international and Indian senior living players: While select Indian players have already partnered with international groups, the industry is likely to see a rise in the number and nature of partnerships between operators and owners. It is likely that international operators will be involved more in future as knowledge and process design partners rather than for capital infusion. • Public curiosity and media support: It is likely that the first few projects launched by top corporate firms will generate large media and customer curiosity in the sector. Such projects, if clubbed with innovative financial retirement solutions (Eg. health insurance for aged) and designed with best practices in services delivery, can be a ‘game-changer’ towards creating demand volumes in the industry. Customers will appreciate such solutions only after they have an opportunity to experience the utility and comfort of the state-of-the-art senior living projects.

Industry Recommendations • Senior living industry body: The setting up of a senior housing developer’s forum under the aegis of a premier national level industry or trade configuration is recommended. This industry body should undertake industry events and trade related activities to support the growth of the industry along with disseminating relevant and correct information regarding the perception of the senior housing market in India. • Development controls: There is a need to set up a working committee which would draft a set of development controls relevant to senior living projects. Senior living projects, by virtue of their unique characteristics, should not be given the same FSI or development controls (Eg. density norms) as given in residential projects. Further, the possibility to grant additional FSI to senior living projects needs to be explored, owing to the fact that they have lesser housing density (which imply lesser pressure on urban infrastructure) and are relevant in the social structure. • Accreditation: Although not an immediate need, the industry has a unique opportunity to promote high quality senior living projects as more new entrants enter this space. For new projects, it is important to put together standards and norms that would enable a project to get classified as a high quality senior living project. • Training: No senior living project can provide a holistic care without the support of trained care workers and medical staffs having experience in working with aged patients. While the latter is still manageable with current healthcare training facilities, the industry needs professionally recognized institutes which can train human resources willing to undertake senior-care as a career.

“The two most dominant trends in seniors housing are affordability and non-institutional models. The expectations of the current and coming residents (and their families) will no longer settle for facilities that resemble prisons and/or are outrageously priced. The non-institutional facility will combine the best of architecture, technology and medicine to deliver a warm, home like experience that fosters communication with family, health care professionals, and the community. This facility will deliver this environment and services at a cost that most people can afford. Once these dominant trends are understood, it then becomes imperative to adapt them to the particular society and culture that is being solicited. Location, size (of facility and units), amenities, staffing become critical elements in the noninstitutional, affordable model. Potential residents are not “coming to die”, rather they are coming to live an enjoyable and meaningful lifestyle. The facility is not an institution--it is a home.”

“Retirement villages are an established industry in Australia and is a wellaccepted mode of living for retirees and the aged. However, with the coming of age of the baby boomers, seniors living community developers are now changing their products to incorporate elements of what the modern seniors require. Transitioning to seniors housing no longer means settling for a sedentary lifestyle or a two-stage move from their own homes into an independent living retirement village and when their health fails, move into their next and final stage into a residential aged care facility. Today’s retirees are looking for a smooth transition from their family homes into a lifestyle community which will enable them to live a healthy and active lifestyle and when required, be provided with the necessary nursing care. The current trends in seniors housing products include- larger living space of 3 bedrooms with a double garage, co-location of independent living units and aged care, supported living / continuing care communities whereby nursing care and supported services are available on demand, vertical living in urban locations, increase technological elements in the products for the new tech-savvy generation such as wireless Internet access. The seniors living product must enable the new and more affluent seniors to take advantage of the good lifestyle with the peace of mind of knowing that their future is secure.”

20 On Point • Senior Living Sector in India

Senior living in India is about to enter a period of trial and error, but I am certain that we will soon see a thriving market for both senior friendly communities and specialized senior living and care facilities including continuing care retirement communities, assisted living, and skilled nursing health centers. The same demographic changes that have made senior living a popular option in other rapidly developing countries are now underway in India: a sharp increase in the number of seniors, steady increases in life expectancy and with it the greater impacts of biological aging, the geographic dispersal of the traditional multigenerational family, and the growing recognition that well planned and managed senior living offers a safer and better life style for many older Indians. The first senior living communities are open and many more are planned. Some developers think that a few senior-oriented details, amenities or services are enough to attract a segment of this market. Over time these timid entries into senior living will have to adapt to avoid failure. Successful senior living depends on well planned and managed facilities and services, a size that matches the market, an attractive and appropriate location, and an understanding of aging and senior needs. Many operators will want to limit themselves to independent living for wealthy seniors. They need to remember the healthy 70 year old moving in will be 80 ten years later and will probably need and demand a different living and care environment. A growing number of companies are developing senior living in India. Some are thoughtful and will be successful. Their success will stimulate many others to respond to the need. Over the next 10 years, I predict that India will develop a wide range of successful senior friendly communities as well as many specialized senior living and care facilities.
