    There’s a “Forgotten Middle” in America’s senior housing market — those who have too much wealth to qualify for government support programs but too few financial resources to cover most private pay senior living options. NIC Analytics case studies showcase senior housing operators and capital providers that are serving this large middle income senior cohort.

    This case study examines Opus Newton, a community-living option located in Newton, Massachusetts developed by 2Life Communities. Opus Newton provides a unique middle income housing option for adults aged 62 and over to ‘live in community.’ See 2Life Communities’ strategies for:
