Laura Curnan, Executive Director, High Point Village Retirement and Assisted Living Community



Today's guest is Laura Curnan, the Executive Director, High Point Village Retirement and Assisted Living Community in Enumclaw, Washington. Laura has been the Executive Director at High Point since 1990, coming to assisted living management after having worked in retirement community management.

In this podcast we talk about how assisted living works, what kind of services are provided, and how the industry fills a niche between retirement communities and nursing homes.

Laura talks about creating a community that is welcoming and comfortable for her residents, and that "brings retirement to life."

This was an educational interview for me because I personally have not had much exposure to the assisted living industry, but clearly this is an industry that will continue to grow in importance. Today there are over 30,000 assisted living facilities in the United States providing care for more than one million residents (SBDC), and it is poised to continue to grow with the aging of the Baby Boom generation.
