February is a month short on days but not on action in the senior housing industry.  The following are a few notablerenovations or expansions that kicked off or wrapped up last month.  We continue to see owners and operators follow the trends in senior housing like adding memory care facilities and developing campuses and CCRCs that provide housing options that are as diverse as seniors.  At Cambridge Realty Capital, we hope these updates serve as a source of inspiration…or maybe just an update on the competition.
