It starts with our voluntary Board of Directors. These area leaders give their time and talent to keep our communities innovative and strong. They work with our Leadership Team to establish policies and review opportunities for continued strategic development.

Within our communities, our staff members work side by side with our dedicated group of volunteers. Together they support and enrich the lives of the seniors who reside in our communities and therefore have the opportunity to age in place.
