"Longevity centre to study living needs of senior citizens", India, 2011.

"Longevity centre to study living needs of senior citizens", 

, Times of India, oct 7, 2011.

"PUNE: In an effort to understand the housing needs of the elderly, the International Longevity Centre-India (ILC-I) is conducting a survey among senior citizens. 

The survey will be conducted among 3,000 senior citizens and the aim is to make recommendations to commercial housing builders for development of a special retirement community complex for the elderly." 

..."Changing lifestyles, rapid urbanisation and thereby nuclearisation of families is leading to a change in the living patterns of the senior citizens in India," said Raje. 
"Life expectancy too is growing annually. Urbanisation and frequent work place shifts are happening, thus leaving most of the elderly alone without children. 

Better economic prospects in the last decade have also led to senior citizens being more financially independent. 

All this often necessitates a strong focus on the often ignored issue of the living needs of senior citizens," she added." 

New Senior Living Association in India (ASLI), 2012.

‎"ALFA [Assisted Living Federation of America] will help the newly created, Association Senior Living India (ASLI), develop a program to better serve India’s growing need for senior living providers."

‎"ALFA, [Assisted Living Federation of America] the largest national association serving the collective interests of professionally-managed senior living communities, today announced a partnership with the first-ever senior living association in India. The American association will assist the new Indian group with developing a program to advance excellence in senior living in India and champion quality of life for the millions of Indian seniors who will benefit from professionally-managed senior living communities.

In December, a history-making outcome of Retirement Living World India, an influential, first-time gathering of senior living companies in India, was the formation of the first national senior living association in India. Like the founding of most professional trade associations

Association Senior Living India started with a gathering of companies that discovered they are all in the same business, have many of the same challenges and, know that if they work together in association, they can create even greater success for their respective companies and their business in general. ALFA was represented at the conference by ALFA Director Steven Vick, Co-Founder and CEO of Signature Senior Living and a long-time entrepreneur of senior living in the United States.

The three day conference, held in New Delhi, brought together industry decision makers from India and around the world to discuss how these businesses could meet the growing demand for seniors housing in India. Participants discussed business strategies, market trends, partnership models, as well as investments and financing opportunities available in the Indian senior living market." ...


"Association Senior Living India", 2012.

"Partnership Seeks to Improve Quality of Life for India’s Seniors"by Michelle Seitzer / Posted on 19 January 2012. 

"The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) is broadening their global perspective. Recently, the provider association entered into a partnership with ASLI (Association Senior Living India), serving in a mentorship role to the “first and only” senior living association in India.

Born out of Retirement Living World India, an inaugural conference of the country’s senior care organizations and providers held in December, ASLI was founded with the purpose of addressing challenges faced by the industry – together.

Per the news release, ALFA participants hope that by sharing their industry knowledge with ASLI group members, the greater goals of “improving quality of life for India’s seniors” and “advancing excellence” among the country’s care providers will be realized"....


"India Breaks with Tradition", May 2012.

"India Breaks with Tradition", by Michelle Seitzer, posted on 29 May 2012.

‎"Even in India, “a nation that prides itself on the inclusive embrace of its extended families,” senior living communities are becoming increasingly popular, according to a recent L.A. Times piece on the subject. 

More families are “rejecting traditional arrangements” for any number of reasons; some seniors prefer living with peers instead of children and grandchildren, and professionals are too busy to provide care for aging parents. "....


"Intentional Interference with an Expected Inheritance"

‎"Here is a scenario to consider: 

Molly and Sandy have been sharing their lives together for ten years. Molly suddenly learns that she has a rare, life-threatening disease. It is extremely likely that Molly will die within one week. 

Molly elects to undergo radical surgery which, if successful, would likely increase her life expectancy by as much as a year. 

Molly asks Sandy to go home and get the will she had created but not yet signed, leaving half of her property to Sandy and half to her estranged brother, Ike. Sandy calls Ike to discuss the matter."...
