Development

Purpose-built Communities

Encore Senior Living develops and manages new, purpose-built senior living communities on prime sites in select, under-supplied markets. Encore works with established capital partners and leads a development team of experienced architects, builders, designers and senior living operators through the site selection, market analysis, ideation, design, construction and interior design process.

The Encore team prides itself on creating communities that are sensitive to the markets they serve and delivering projects that are on time, every time.

A Comfortable Home with Convenient Amenities

Each Encore-developed community has a unique personality unto itself. Encore private apartment homes feature a variety of floorplans, and each community offers convenient amenities including:

  • On-site dining in a social setting
  • Garden patio with raised planters
  • Spacious community rooms
  • Beauty salon
  • Spa/bathtique
  • Wellness office
  • Beautifully landscaped grounds and community patio, gazebo or enclosed courtyard.

Acquisition

Together with our capital partners, Encore Senior Living acquires second-generation senior housing communities in select small- to mid-size markets and initiates a turn-around strategy that includes thoughtful improvements to the physical plant as well as care, dining, lifestyle and marketing enhancements.

Management

Leadership Team

Leadership

Encore leadership team members are very familiar faces at Encore owned and managed communities. They develop relationships with residents and family members, mentor staff and empower the on-site teams to be the experts in their markets and to lead with the autonomy they deserve.

More than a blueprint and a budget, Encore management provides on-site teams with the tools and resources, as well as a wealth of support from peers and colleagues, to complete their jobs accurately and confidently.

A Standing Ovation for Quality Care

Encore’s highly trained and dedicated team of nurses and caregivers address simple to complex care needs while supporting active and engaged lifestyles. Residents and loved ones gain peace of mind knowing that a helping hand is available around-the-clock.

At Encore, we value independence and individuality, and, as such, offer custom assisted living care options, so residents can receive as little or as much help as desired.
