COVID pushes seniors toward independent living sites
EV Construction is keeping tabs on the state of senior living during and post-COVID.
The Holland-based general contractor has contracts with several senior living organizations like UMRC, Clark at Keller Lake, Porter Hills, Sunset and Trinity, and has noticed the pandemic is not slowing consumer interest in independent living. In fact, it may have renewed it.
John Parker, vice president of project development at EV Construction, said the predicted trend over the next several years is an increased interest from seniors in transitioning to independent living.
“What I’ve heard from other owners is they believe the COVID crisis will move some seniors from living on their own in a traditional home situation and show them the benefits of moving into a community and being surrounded by other seniors and having access to assistance,” Parker said.
EV is now serving as construction manager for Clark at Keller Lake, alongside Plante Moran, which is the development consultant for the project.
