My name is Michael Devaney and I’m a Seattle-based copywriter. I started this blog to better understand the senior housing industry. Is the high cost of care sustainable? How will current service providers adapt? Is assisted living viable for more than a small percentage of the population? Senior Care Stuff exists to deliver short, punchy and relevant news content.
I became familiar with nursing homes after serving as a volunteer in a Manhattan hospital between 2007-11. I also thought more about senior housing when I taught English to Central Asian immigrants in Brooklyn, NY. Many of the students were close to retirement age.
