We have been writing more of late about our senior living feasibility study capabilities for platforms in China and across Southeast Asia. As I shared in a recent column, we tend to get two types of feasibility study requests. One is very specific to a particular piece of property either green field or redevelopment in nature. The second is more for institutional investors and senior living operators who want to be able to compare senior living assets and opportunities across the region. Ideally, they want to compare pricing, design and … [Read more...] about What’s in a Senior Living Feasibility Study?

Last week, as part of a client immersion trip we have coordinated across Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and now China, we spent time looking at senior care in Guangzhou. One of our visits was to a large, privately owned and operated, senior care facility. On a trip like this one, we are motivated equally by a desire to help our client understand the market (what people currently pay for, the services they expect to receive, and the business models deployed by the early adapters), as well as by a desire to find potential partners. The balance … [Read more...] about Tracking seniors with RFID: Middle Class Senior Care in Guangzhou

I just read Dan Harris' post today over at China Law Blog titled "China Due Diligence and China Business Licenses."

I want to make the following point explicitly clear: we see too many poorly defined business scopes put forward by foreign healthcare companies new to China because their local counsel or JV partner says the scope, as defined, is "good enough." Good enough may get you open today, but a poorly defined business scope is a … [Read more...] about Properly Licensing Your Healthcare Business in China
Channeling Ronald Reagan: Trust But Verify Your China Eldercare Partner The longer title for this post was originally "Why Foreign Senior Care Operators Have to Invest in Feasibility Studies Even When Their China Eldercare Partner Says They Don't Need To." Let's run through a pretty typical scenario. Your senior care company determines that it wants to go to China. You go on a trade mission. Maybe you even go to a trade show. You meet a lot of interesting Chinese potential partners. Every one of them seems serious. Every one of them is … [Read more...] about China Eldercare & Channeling Ronald Reagan
Immersion Trips Are a Way to Avoid Big Trouble in Little China Every year, we do roughly 3-5 immersion trips (also called "missionary" or "sherpa" trips). The objective of these trips is to take an executive team from a healthcare, senior care or home care company and immerse them in the China market. We have done similar trips in the last 12 months that include Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia. Typically, these trips are the outgrowth of a high-level decision made in the C-suite to get a better understanding of the … [Read more...] about Avoid Big Trouble in Little China With Immersion Trips
