NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 8 /PRNewswire/ -. In the face of conventional wisdom, which has long proven true, women live longer than men. Men, however, are making a comeback of sorts as more men than ever are moving into senior living residences nationwide. Historically female-dominated, senior living communities are welcoming more men for a variety of reasons, including the fact that men are now living longer, too.

"The most significant numbers, however, are noted when looking at the overall trend from 2004 until now."

Particularly noteworthy for male move-ins is their growing presence in independent living communities. From 2004 until now, Brookdale has seen a growth rate among male move-ins of about 7.5 percent.
