Between regulation, costs and innovation: How do operators view the care real estate market?
Care properties have become increasingly popular with investors in recent years. The linchpin of this particular market are the operators, who create a differentiated range of care provision for a wide range of needs and continuously adapt this to changes in social, structural and regulatory requirements. These have intensified again in the past year: for example, digitalisation, stricter ESG requirements and personnel shortages were joined by further reporting obligations, massively increased energy costs and the new Tariff Compliance Act.
How does the sector itself view these developments? We asked 30 operators of nursing homes, outpatient facilities and assisted living about the trends, challenges and opportunities in the current market. Operators lively and aiutanda provide particularly deep insights in interview.
Focus of the report:
- What is the attitude of operators towards the reporting obligations increasingly demanded by owners?
- To what extent is there openness towards sustainability goals?
- How do operators deal with higher energy prices and inflation-related rent increases?
- What role does digitalisation play in care facility operations?
