BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Stacey Clark, founder/president of Virtuous Senior Living to talk about her company and what they offer to senior living facilities.
Virtuous Senior Living works primarily with owners and operators of senior living facilities.
According to their website (virtuoussl.com), “We have a detailed understanding of current industry challenges and needs of owners and operators within senior living across the country. Our team brings high level, professional expertise to you in a variety of areas, including, but not limited to, clinical support, project management, people development, and strategic planning. In addition, we provide extensive experience in start-ups and new developments, acquisitions, and stabilized communities.”
Clark, who has been in the health care profession since the age of 15 when she was calling bingo at the Fountains of Melbourne Senior Living, fell in love with working with the residents. She told me, “There is nothing as rewarding as working with our senior population.”
Clark talked about the importance of the people in the industry, telling me, “There needs to be an emphasis more on the people, the people that work for you, and the people that live with you.”
Virtuous Senior Living is filling a need. The state of Florida leads the nation with 21% of its residents over the age of 65. Anything that can be done to enhance and improve the quality of life for the elderly that are in senior living facilities is a blessing.
