We build communities where grandparents love to live and their grandkids can’t wait to visit.


These concepts compel us in all we do.
SOUL: Find the connection

We go to great lengths to know our residents and their families, as remembering a name is just the beginning.

feel: make it inviting

We believe in the power of well-designed spaces to encourage, uplift, and welcome you home because there’s no finer place to be.

Grit: Welcome Each Challenge

Along with the generation we serve, we know there is value in hard work. Nothing worth doing comes easy — so we roll up our sleeves and do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Spunk: Be Full of Life

Telling stories, having fun, and laughing at ourselves are as important as anything else we do. We bring out the best in each other and applaud accomplishments, great and small.
