The landscape of senior living has evolved dramatically over the years, shifting from traditional care models to more vibrant, engaging, and personalized experiences for older adults. A significant catalyst behind this transformation is the Novare consortium. Founded in 2012, Novare brings together a diverse range of not-for-profit Life Plan communities under a common goal – to drive excellence and innovation in senior living through collaboration and shared best practices. One of its esteemed members, Frasier, is a prime example of how Novare is revolutionizing the senior living industry.
