As retirement communities plan to serve new generations of residents, appealing to the needs and desires of those residents is a strategic planning imperative. For Seabury, a life plan community in Bloomfield, CT, leaders looked at the future through an environmental sustainability perspective, says Christine DuPont, Seabury vice president of marketing & communications.
“We had this opportunity to assess what we could do to change the direction of our community,” she says. “What could we [do], long-term, to serve the older adults on this campus? There is a passion for trying to clean up the world, to leave it a better place for future generations, and a lot of activism in that group. And so that vision, from the leadership plus [the people] living here, coalesced.”
