New Solutions Announced for Older Timeshare Resorts for 2020

Despite a lot of negative news about vacation timeshare ownership in the mainstream media, significant opportunities exist for timeshare owners and their owners’ associations to realize their true value through effective governance and management,

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (PRWEB) January 08, 2020
Despite a lot of negative news about vacation timeshare ownership in the mainstream media, “significant opportunities exist for timeshare owners and their owners’ associations to realize their true value through effective governance and management,” says Alexander Krakovsky, CEO of Lemonjuice Capital and Lemonjuice Solutions.
Krakovsky, a timeshare-industry outsider and former executive of Contour Global, a publicly traded international power company, bought into the timeshare concept in 2012 as an owner at a resort in Ocean City, MD. After recognizing the importance management plays in running a successful resort, he formed Lemonjuice Capital.
Lemonjuice Capital has focused on repurposing timeshare regimes so they attain their highest and best use, which might entail conversions to wholly-owned condominiums or multi-use properties. He later formed Holiday Property Partners (HPP) to attract investment capital into the industry.
HPP also expanded into providing management services in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. Recently, Krakovsky announced the acquisition of the resort-management operations of ARC Resorts, LLC, an Orlando-based property-management and development firm.
ARC Resorts’ management business is being integrated with HPP’s operations under the name Lemonjuice Solutions, but ARC Resorts will retain and continue to operate its sales and development operations unconnected to HPP or Lemonjuice. The acquisition has added four management contracts to HPP’s portfolio in Florida.
Going forward, Lemonjuice Capital will continue to manage portfolio and capital investments from its Gaithersburg, MD, office. The Orlando office will coordinate property management and consumer services with field offices in Maryland, North Carolina, and Texas.
Unlock Stakeholder Value
The addition will bolster Lemonjuice Capital’s mission to unlock stakeholder value in properties with complex legal and title issues, including legacy timeshares, condominiums, and tenant-in-common (TIC) investment vehicles.
“The combined team will enhance the firm’s core competency in delivering high-quality property solutions in a sustainable management role,” Krakovsky says, “Although we’re primarily known for our successful workouts of struggling properties, with significant revenues being returned to the rightful property owners, we value long-term relationships with sustainable properties. This investment in people and systems will help to serve them even better.”
Industry veteran Scott MacGregor will lead the Lemonjuice Solutions division. “Alex and his team bring a wealth of experience and fresh ideas to the business,” MacGregor says. “We are completely aligned in our commitment to delivering excellence in management services, real choices, and solutions to our customers.
“The people and communities whom we serve are facing complex and rapidly changing environments. They must make informed decisions to ensure continued enjoyment and sustainability of their properties. They need and deserve resources, ideas, and options, which we are in a unique position to deliver. It’s a real privilege to be a part of this executive management team.”

DOROT to Deliver #PackagesWithPurpose to Older New Yorkers this #GivingTuesday

Delivering packages to an older neighbor.

I am so glad I found DOROT. My life is about to change and I look forward to positively impacting the life of another. I am honored to be a friend to our nations’ elders. – DOROT volunteer

NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 25, 2019
DOROT, a leader in the fields of aging services and volunteerism, has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media. Last year, DOROT harnessed the impact of #GivingTuesday into a successful campaign to support visiting programs for seniors in order to combat social isolation at these critical times. This year, on December 3rd, DOROT is excited to be collecting gifts for our essential seasonal Package Deliveries; DOROT is delivering Packages With Purpose.
Through many of DOROT’s signature programs, including Package Deliveries and Friendly Visiting, seniors are matched with volunteers who visit them at home. These intergenerational connections ease seniors’ loneliness and enhance their lives. In addition to companionship, volunteers bring meals to older adults on Thanksgiving and provide holiday essentials for Rosh Hashanah and Passover; they also deliver hats, gloves, and nourishment for the cold winter months. We deliver birthday cakes and warm wishes, celebrate a night of Chanukah, and have other special one-time events bringing volunteers into the homes of older New Yorkers.
Each year, more than 7,000 volunteers and 3,000 seniors are touched by all of DOROT’s programming. Countless friendships and memories are made every day thanks to the support of our community. With the funds raised on #GivingTuesday, DOROT can continue our visiting programs and create new intergenerational connections.
On December 3, supporters can make an online donation to DOROT, then encourage their social media networks to do the same, all while sharing the personal stories behind those gifts. We are grateful for a generous match by the Miriam & Arthur Diamond Charitable Trust.
About DOROTDOROT is a social service agency dedicated to alleviating social isolation among older adults by providing services to help them live independently as valued members of the community. For more than four decades, DOROT has been an innovative leader in the fields of aging services and volunteerism.

Half of Single Older Adults in U.S. Lack Income to Pay for Basic Needs

UMass Boston Research Finds Nearly One-Third Live “In the Gap” Between Poverty, Economic Security
Press Release – updated: Nov 19, 2019 09:00 EST

BOSTON, November 19, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Researchers tracking the economic security of America’s older adults have found that half who live alone and nearly a quarter of those living in two-person households where both are age 65 or older are unable to afford basic necessities without extra assistance. The 2019 Elder IndexTM and a companion report, Insecurity in the States 2019, calculates the elder economic “insecurity rate” both nationally and on a state-by-state basis. The new index data and report were produced by the Gerontology Institute at the UMass Boston’s McCormack Graduate School.
Among the states, Massachusetts leads the nation with the highest level of economic insecurity for older adults living alone. Seven of the top 10 states in that economic insecurity category, including New York and New Jersey, were located in the Northeast. They’re joined by Mississippi, Louisiana, and California.
The index estimates the cost to adults age 65 and older for food, housing, healthcare, and transportation in every county in the U.S. Researchers match income data with index results to determine state and national rates of elder economic insecurity.
On average across the country, 18.2 percent of older adults living alone have income below the Federal Poverty Level. Another 32.1 percent live “in the gap,” with income that exceeds the poverty line but falls short of covering their actual cost of living.
“Making ends meet is a daily challenge for many older adults, especially those who live alone,” said Jan Mutchler, director of the Gerontology Institute’s Center for Social and Demographic Research on Aging. “The elder index provides an important reality check – a realistic measure of the actual cost of a no-frills lifestyle for elders living independently.”
Findings include:
*  National averages suggest 50 percent of older adults living alone and 23 percent of elder couples have annual incomes below the Elder Index.
*  Nationwide, 32 percent of single elders and 18 percent of couples fall into the gap between the Federal Poverty Level and the income required for realistic economic security.
* At least 40 percent of elder adults in every state are at-risk of being unable to afford basic needs and age in their own homes.
*  More than half of older adults living below the Elder Index rely on Social Security for at least 90 percent of their incomes.
The elder index calculated a realistic national average annual cost of living of $25,416 for renting elder singles and $36,204 for elder couples.
Overall, the state with the lowest Elder Economic Insecurity Rate was Nevada, followed by Alaska and Utah. See complete state rankings.
The Elder Index is a free online resource available for anyone to look up customized information about the cost of elder living in any county, state, or the country. It can be found at a new location: www.elderindex.org.
