Managing Senior Living Properties

James brings 30 plus years of experience in operations including turnarounds, acquisitions, construction, and start-up communities. He has successfully supervised large regions of Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care communities for large and small senior living companies. He served as Regional Director of Operations and Sales throughout Texas, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Oklahoma, California, Illinois, Indiana, and Arizona.

Note to the Reader
After years of experience in the Senior Care Industry, my wife Suzanne and I have launched “Imagine Senior Living”.
Working for other companies, we have worked in small Assisted Living Communities, 30 apartments in the state of Washington clear down to the state of Florida with grand campuses and cottages, Resort Style Independent Living Apartments with Assisted Living and Memory Care. We have worked every aspect of Senior Living.
We have been on both sides of acquisitions, both large and small. We have been successful in turning around under-performing challenged properties – returning them into thriving senior communities.
We have experienced the brand new startups, through the conception phase, marketing studies and all the way through the construction stage – to the day when the first residents move-ins to the celebration of reaching the goal of 100% in occupancy.
Over the last 20 plus years, Suzanne and I, have had the privilege of working with some very talented people in companies large and small.
Now today, we are taking that extensive experience and are applying it to, “Imagine Senior Living”. With years of experience of overseeing multiple properties in the multiple states, we are focusing our experience on, Imagine Senior Living!
A Company to the size of 10 plus, provides the resources needed for quality care and allows us to be personly involved in each property. The “First-Person” hands-on management approach allows us to quickly respond to resident’s needs, the needs of the business and keep our finger on the pulse of the market place.
10 plus communities are where we excel.
10 plus communities we have proven ourselves repeatedly.
10 plus communities we exceed expectations.
