We’re constantly innovating and developing new programs with the intent of building stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities for our residents and their families. Innovation begins within the walls of our communities, therefore many of our most successful programs begin as pilot programs in a single community and, if they prove to be successful, are extended to the entire company. Many innovative ideas our team has developed are spotlighted to share our commitment to innovation and to our residents.
