HDG Delivers Expert Support for Your Senior Living Development and Opening

HDG’s experienced senior living consultants are available to provide data, guidance, and expert insight through the entire process of developing your independent living, assisted living, memory care, life plan, or continuing care retirement community. From market selection and concept through start-up and operations, we’re committed to ensuring your successful opening.

Market Snapshot

When it comes to evaluating locations for potential development, a market snapshot can provide invaluable insight. A market snapshot quantitatively identifies the preliminary unit potential for independent living, assisted living, and memory care based on typical rates and competitive units in the defined area.

Market Feasibility & Demand Studies

It can be a struggle to understand the true growth potential in your existing or planned operating markets. It requires awareness of how your projected demand or utilization compare against other senior living providers locally and nationally. Yet knowing your market is a crucial first step in identifying the ideal location and service mix — and reasonable start-up or operating budget — for your senior living development.

Our market research team quantitatively identifies the demand for each product type in a defined market area in terms of units, using data such as demographics, income-level, and workforce availability. Our experienced team can mystery shop your market competitors for a more fully informed analysis. The result is a comprehensive report that delivers the quantitative and qualitative data needed to support sound business decision-making.

Financial Modeling & Pro-Forma Development

You’ve completed your market feasibility study and developed the preliminary project definition. All that’s missing is the financial planning that will allow you to realize your vision. Our consultants work side-by-side with you to prepare the financial projections that inform business plans, investors, and potential lenders. These projections may include estimated project budgets, start-up and operating budgets, detailed financial performance projections, projected financial statements, and financial sensitivity analyses.

Our finance team combines your data with specialized insight from our team of expert senior living operators. This includes access to a multitude of internal HDG-proprietary benchmarks gleaned through decades of experience in managing and consulting for senior living and care communities throughout the country.
