Three Organizational Pillars

Who are we and why do we do what we do? Our organization will have three pillars: Identity, Execution, and Affordability.


Every individual has a story to tell. In our communities, the story continues. A community is a family. We get to know each of our residents and they get to know each other, we help them record their life histories with their families, and we highlight that story every day.


Without rigorous execution, this complex business falls apart. We will adhere to the mantra: do what you say you’re going to do.


The middle market has been underserved by senior housing. We want to always ask: is there a more affordable option?

We are leaning towards assisted living and memory care

Acuity segment

Independent Living

Geared towards seniors who do not need assistance w/ activities of daily living (ADLs)


Assisted Living

Most residents move needing ADL help and have a need for driven absorption


Memory Care

Residents suffering from dementia have unique needs and could be diagnosed with Alzheimers


Skilled Nursing

Highest acuity residents, w/ extensive medical needs have low cyclicality


Passionate about perfection

The opportunity thesis

Senior housing is a hyper-local business
• Regional operators have higher occupancy than national operators like Brookdale
• REITs increasingly are acquiring regional operators due to superior performance

The space is hot from an investment standpoint
• REITs and large private equity firms are struggling to find yield in acquired properties yet have significant dry powder to invest
• Cap rates average 6.8%, but we are seeing cap rates creep to 5%, which is a multi-family cap rate.

Debt is readily available for construction projects and recapitalization
• 60% loan to value for construction loans
• Facilities can be recapitalized at 80+% loan to value ratios at stabilization
• 4.5-5% interest rates

A good operator can maintain 30-45% unit-level EBITDA margins
• Value is created by quality operations
• Unlike other real estate, the amount of capex investment does not make a property successful
• Less cyclical than other real estate assets
