An influential senior living provider and research organization is introducing a new wellness model, with hopes that the approach will gain traction throughout the sector and better attract and serve a rising generation of older adults.
The “person-centric wellness model” was developed by Mather, a non-denominational, non-profit organization based near Chicago in Evanston, Illinois. Mather operates life plan communities in Evanston and Tucson, Arizona, as well as an independent living community on Chicago’s North Shore. Mather is also in the process of developing The Mather, a highrise life plan community in the Washington, D.C. metro market. The person-centric wellness framework was created through work done in conjunction with the Mather Institute, which conducts research focused on senior living/aging services.
