I have worked with senior housing and senior specialists during my time in commercial real estate. 

California’s population continues to grow, and the number of seniors here are growing at twice the rate as the general population.  I support our senior citizens and benefits like MediCal, Prop 13, and the expansion of Prop 60 and 90, especially for seniors on fixed monthly income. 

Many of our seniors will need more CCRC (continuing care retirement communities), home health care and hospice professionals.  We need to encourage educational and vocational specialization in senior care in both the public and private sectors, especially for our older veterans (who also have VA care options).  

We need to start preparing NOW for the upcoming demand increase for senior: medical & dental facilities, healthcare providers, (responsible) pharmaceutical companies, insurance carriers, rehabilitation clinics, reverse mortgage specialists, trust and probate attorneys, and memory care professionals.
