Nonmedical, residential care settings, also known as assisted living facilities (ALFs), provide secure housing, personal services, food services, and 24-hour staffing. The demand for assisted living facilities are on the rise as the older adult population increases. In Illinois, there was a 4.4 percent increase in older adults aged 65 and older from the year 1990 to 2000. In Rock Island, IL, there are currently two ALFs, Fort Armstrong Senior Residence and Friendship Manor, as well as two nursing homes, Generations at Rock Island and St. Anthony’s Continuing Care. With the ever-growing older adult population, these facilities will not suffice.
The purpose of this directed project was to develop a business plan for the creation of Darling Suites, an ALF for older adults aged 65 and older, to be located in Rock Island, IL, a community in need of facilities to meet a growing older adult population.
