The Best in Senior Living

History of Encore Senior Living
The management team at Encore Senior Living has been positively shaping the senior living industry since 1971. Originally as part of Brim Senior Living, we built senior care communities across the country — communities that set the standard for independent living, assisted living and Alzheimer’s care.

In 1996, after many incarnations, Encore Senior Living was officially formed. Today, Encore manages senior living communities with international and domestic financial backers. Encore currently manages a portfolio of 10 communities in four states.

Nearly 1,500 seniors across the country have chosen to call an Encore community their home. The reason for their choice is twofold: caring professional staff that sets service standards unmatched in the industry and exceptional value. Encore’s “Residents First” approach is committed to meeting the needs of its residents by providing superior services that allow each resident to live his or her life to the fullest through an individualized support program.
