SENIOR LIVING: AUSTRIA IS FACING A HOUSING SHORTAGE

“Austria is facing a gray housing shortage when it comes to senior living” is one of the key statements of the first Austria-wide market report on senior living, which was published by Silver Living in spring 2019. The Silver Living market report for senior living is a good basis for better assessing the market for Assisted Living, since, in contrast to other areas of life, statistics on this age group are largely missing in Austria.

As basis for the report an extensive survey was carried out, which resulted in an analysis of the current situation and a database of existing residential Assisted Living complexes and nursing homes. In addition, demographic developments such as changes in income, housing situation or mobility among senior citizens as well as topics such as “living in nursing homes” were examined.

As a conclusion, the market opportunities for Assisted Living were summarized.

Neben einer umfangreichen Umfrage aus der eine Analyse der Ist-Situation sowie eine Datenbank mit bestehenden Betreuten und Betreubaren Wohnanlagen sowie Pflegeheimen resultierte, wurden auch demografischen Entwicklungen, wie etwa Einkommensveränderungen oder der Wohnsituation bzw. -mobilität unter Seniorinnen und Senioren, und Themenbereiche wie „Wohnen im Pflegeheim“ untersucht.

Als Schlussfolgerung wurden die Marktchancen für Betreutes Wohnen zusammengefasst.
