Artistic ImpressionSenior Living Housing - Why Senior Housing Demand is On The Rise?

The demand for secure homes for senior citizens has increased post-pandemic as the elderly population struggled with repeated lockdowns, seeking a sense of community. As per data reported by available sources, enquiries for a living community for elderly citizens rose by 30 per cent in the last few years. It is believed that it will further increase in the coming years, considering the increased focus on health and well-being, apart from a fast-ageing population. It is seen that many real estate developers have started catering to this rise in senior housing demand, either by building dedicated towers with senior citizen-friendly amenities within a regular housing project or with the development of senior citizen housing projects.

Dhruv Agarwala, the Group CEO of, and, said, "India's 1.3 billion population is ageing faster than before. The population of senior residents (above 60 years) is projected to register a 130 per cent growth between 2020-2050 and is set to reach a whopping 320 million from the current 139 million.” He also added that the sheer size of the population in this age group presents a huge investment potential. Betting on Senior Living

Until a few years ago, senior living communities remained limited to certain urban centres in the country. Additionally, they were also limited to prominent serene locations that experience pleasant climate throughout the year. However, this segment of the population holds increased potential as health and wellness take centre stage during certain times. Since the senior population is on the rise, it is an excellent opportunity for real estate investors and developers to cater to this demand. Currently at a very nascent stage, senior living housing came into focus after the outbreak of the global pandemic.

In 2021, India had about 138 million people aged 60 years and above as per the country’s National Statistical Office. This number is estimated to increase by 41 per cent, making the population of senior citizens reach 194 million in the next 10 years.

Senior Citizen Housing in Southern India

Interestingly, many southern cities of the country have emerged at the forefront of developing housing societies for senior citizens. In addition to that, the southern cities have taken up about 70 per cent share of the overall senior living projects in the country. Looking at the geography of India, it can be inferred that a majority of the senior living projects in the country are concentrated in southern cities such as Kochi, Bangalore, Coimbatore, and Chennai, among others. This region of the country for senior housing is followed by the western cities and northern cities of India.

As per reports, it is believed that real estate developers have now started offering senior living housing projects in the country either on a lease basis or on exclusive discounts. Furthermore, there are different models of senior living housing which can be broadly categorized into independent living, assisted living, skilled or nursing care, and continuing care retirement homes. Such projects also have medical facilities such as ambulances, regular medical check-ups, tie-up with hospitals, and round-the-clock medical staff in case of emergencies.

In the last year, many real estate developers have started focusing on this asset class as a part of their large residential projects and townships. Adani Realty has developed residences for senior citizens within it’s integrated township, Adani Shantigram located on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. Several other real estate developers have also started developing senior citizen housing projects in India to cater to the increasing demand for the same.
