Mission and Core Values

Brightview creates vibrant senior living communities for seniors by providing excellent service to all of our residents and their families. Our communities are a great place for our residents to live and a great place for our associates to work.

Brightview Senior Living was created by The Shelter Group, a privately-held company that was founded in 1977. The Shelter Group developed, managed, and owned residential real estate, specializing in multi-family and senior living communities. In 2018, The Shelter Group was renamed Brightview Senior Living, a reflection of our singular focus on creating vibrant senior living communities. The same trusted and experience management team remains active in the business today.

New Community Development

Brightview Senior Living Development focuses on creating quality senior living communities to meet marketplace needs. By taking the time to understand individual markets while building relationships with neighborhood, government, business, and financial partners, Brightview Senior Living Development has successfully developed and acquired more than $2 billion in senior living residential communities.
