Episode 2: Building community is at the heart of senior living

We sit down with our SVP of Operations, Tate Stewart, to discuss: Building community is at the heart of senior living.

Tate supports the leadership teams in the Thrive communities, ensuring they have the tools and resources they need to have thriving residents and team members. Prior to his current role, Tate was the President of Thrive at Brow Wood for two years, where he grew the community to 100% occupancy.

Many older adults think they have what they need to maintain a quality life at home; however, for the majority, they end up doing without… without good nutrition, without social interactions, without doctors’ appointments, without care, and more – by doing without, this can increase their speed of decline and decrease their overall wellbeing. Moving to a senior living community can ensure older adults get proper nutrition, socialization, care & support, exercise, and are living quality lives. In our second episode, Tate walks us through what it means to build “community” in senior living including:

  • Access to all services
  • Partnerships with outside resources
  • Complexity of the aging process and senior living
  • The importance of relationships
  • Resident-focused culture and team
  • Technology’s role in the community
  • The future of senior living
