ATLANTA

A delegation of top financial services and insurance executives from China recently toured Lenbrook, Atlanta’s first and only nationally accredited senior living community, to see first hand the operations of this leading retirement community.

The visit marked Taikang Life Insurance Company’s second trip to Lenbrook in two years. Its subsidiary, Taikang Property Investment Co. Ltd., was one of the first corporations in China to obtain government approval to develop a retirement community, and is now beginning work on its third senior living project in China with Atlanta-based, international architecture and land planning firm THW Design.

Lenbrook is Atlanta’s only retirement community nationally accredited by the CARF/CARC (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitative Facilities/Continuing Care Accreditation Commission). In 2010, the American Institute of Architects honored Lenbrook with an Award of Merit and selected Lenbrook’s $160 million state-of-the-art facility and campus expansion to be a featured project in its “2010 Design for Aging Review” publication. THW, also the design firm for Lenbrook’s recent expansion, organized the tours for Taikang so they could see a best-in-class example of an urban senior living community.

“Observing how we operate and serve over 400 residents daily proved inspiring and informative to Taikang last year. They wanted a second group of company leaders to see our best practices in delivering a superior senior living community experience,” said Chris Keysor, chief financial officer of Lenbrook. Lenbrook offers resort-style amenities, activities and 360 independent living apartment homes plus the full continuum of senior health care including personal care suites, skilled nursing and rehabilitation services.

In addition to studying Western senior housing models, Taikang is also exploring Australian and Japanese development projects. “In addition to several full-scale community developments in Beijing, we’re working with Taikang on a 50,000-sq. ft. senior living demonstration building in Qingdao that will be used to educate Chinese industry about best practices in senior living community design,” said Song Cheng, vice president of international services for THW. THW accompanied the Taikang executives on the Lenbrook tour.

China’s growing wave of seniors (those 60 and older) has prompted the government to target adding more than 3 million senior housing beds in China by 2015.
