Surprised that over 100,000 people shared the idea, Robison said he meant to describe hotel living as a cheaper alternative to an independent living center geared toward mentally and physically fit seniors, not a nursing home. But unlike senior living communities, Johansen said hotels do not help people develop long-term companionship or engage in mentally-stimulating activities. "It's based on the idea that you sell your home and then have this chunk of money to slap down on a continuing care."When seniors can't afford to move into assisted living, Johansen said reports of falls and emergencies rise.
