For-profit companies build alternatives to assisted living, nursing homes with obscure help from Medicare


The for-profit world of private equity companies is now building “active senior” centers to keep them out of assisted living or nursing homes. Sarah Varney has a detailed story in the Aug. 21 Sunday Business of the New York Times. A little known Medicare rule allows this development.
 
The specific home is in Denver, and the company is InnovAge .

I would wonder if high altitude affects some seniors.  Would Flagstaff, AZ or Leadville CO be OK for a senior home?
