15 May India’s Health Care Sector Looks to Florida for Senior Care Solutions
Continuing Care for Seniors is big business in Florida. Now, entrepreneurs from India hope to apply a similar business model there.
A contingent from a New Delhi-based healthcare organization was in Ft. Myers last week visiting Florida’s largest continuing care community – Shell Point – to learn more about the industry.
Spread over 900 acres near the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River, Shell Point is home to about 2,300 seniors living in houses and apartments. They range from gracious penthouses apartments over-looking the river to small assisted living spaces with golf course views.
Antara Senior Living is starting much smaller. The company has acquired 20 acres north of New Delhi in the foothills of the Himalayas. The elevation and relative temperate climate make the area a popular vacation spot. With an estimated population of 112 million people over age of 60 in India, Antara bets a select few would like to make its planned community their permanent home.
