In addition to changing the facility’s name, the parent company’s name was also changed. They believe Assisted Living Concepts described their business, but didn’t capture the essence of how they work to meet each resident’s unique needs and enhance their ability thrive in mind, body and spirit. The new company name is Enlivant (pronounced “En-lye-vant”), which they believe is the “how” that sets them apart; a vibrancy in their communities that creates strong social connections, an environment that offers a sense of belonging for residents, a caring staff that works to help residents maintain their wellbeings and engage with the things they care about. They will remain committed to providing solutions to older adults and their families when the home no longer supports a healthy, enriched life.
Baker noted changing the name from House to Place was also important because the word house describes a building and the word place describes an environment; one that is used for special purpose. Their mission is centered on enriching the life of their residents.
In addition to Debbie Baker, the management team includes Sandy Baker Baker, community relations manager. Alaina Dittmar, RN clinical services manager, will soon be joining the team.
