Competitor Analysis for Senior Living


​​​Know Your Competition BETTER Than They Know You


What makes one senior living community thrive in a particular marketplace while others appear to struggle?


Is one community's pet-friendly policy the secret to attracting new residents? Are the dining and activities programs far superior? Is pricing playing a crucial role? Or does one community havefar superior online reviews, a more engaging website, or more effective salespeople?


Conducting a thorough Competitor Analysis will help answer these questions and more. A comprehensive Competitor Analysis identifies threats from the competition, but more importantly, identifies opportunities to leverage a community's advantages to outshine the competition. 


In most markets, prospects have MANY choices for senior living. And rarely is a decision made based solely on price. Being vigilant about monitoring the competitive landscape is essential to staying relevant in the mind of today's prospect. New and renovated choices change the competitive environment daily.  Research into your competitors can help you make adjustments to turn the prospect decision-making process in your community's favor.


Don't lose another day wondering how your community stacks up relative to other choices in your area.  Let the Senior Source Consulting Group conduct a thorough Competitor Analysis to gather objective data and actionable insight on your behalf.
