Our Story

At Lifesprk, we’re passionate about helping our community age magnificently. We focus on providing care that’s proactive, preventive, and centered on creating a happier, healthier, more independent life.

History

Although we started in 2004, we have deep roots. Before launching Lifesprk, several of our leaders worked together for 10+ years in senior living. Frustrated that existing health and senior services didn’t go far enough, our leaders set out to create a community that “sparked life” for all residents.

We knew to create change in the community, we needed a new model of care that supports the whole person. This includes helping people build a pathway to their goals through guidance, support, and resources. We love to see our residents succeed and we’ll do what it takes to make it happen.

Our Community Today

Today, we at Lifesprk are focused on bringing our outstanding community to seniors across the country. To do this, we have partnered with Tealwood Senior Living. With over 30 senior living communities, this partnership helps us offer our care to more seniors and their families across the country. 

Founded in 1989, Tealwood Senior Living perfectly aligns with our values and mission. Both of our communities strive to offer our residents care above what is expected. By joining forces, we now support more seniors and families than ever before. 

Even through change, we have maintained our same roots from 2004. We know that our residents still deserve the same great care, and we can’t wait to give it to them.

Our Mission

To spark lives and empower everyone to age magnificently. 

Our Vision

Improve the health, wellbeing, and life experience of seniors and their families, leading to greater independence, lower healthcare costs, and more fulfilling lives.

Our Partners

Tealwood Management

Tealwood Management was formed in 2003. The principals of Tealwood Senior Living established an organization that focuses on managing its own projects and obtaining management agreements with other businesses, all while affording ownership opportunities for key staff.

Tealwood Management currently manages 10 locations of its own. It has management agreements with 4 freestanding assisted living projects, 1 skilled nursing center, and 1 campus, including a skilled nursing center and an assisted living community.

Trident Development

Tealwood Senior Living combined talents with Trident Development in 2008 to develop senior housing projects. Their journey began in Sauk Center, MN, where they developed an assisted living community, opening its doors to seniors in the community that November.

Since that initial project, the joint venture has combined to develop 15 senior housing projects, 3 of which are still under construction. Trident’s strengths are its ability to secure land, develop the infrastructure, coordinate the design of the project, assist in the financing, and ultimately secure construction. The partnership looks to continue developing projects into the future.

Leonard Louis Healthcare Properties (LLHCP)

Tealwood Senior Living began its initial journey by leasing 5 nursing facilities from LLHCP in 1989. The relationship expanded in 1992 when LLHCP partnered with the Tealwood principals to acquire a 72-unit senior care community in Waite Park, MN.

Since that first senior housing project, Tealwood has partnered with LLHCP, successfully developing 15 senior communities. The LLHCP growth strategy was built on the belief that better care is provided in rural markets where friends and relatives frequently care for their loved ones. LLHCP is owned by two prominent Minneapolis attorneys, Samuel Kaplan and Ralph Strangis.

Tealwood Senior Living

In 1998, Tealwood Senior Living formed a joint venture to manage 4 campuses owned by Senior Care Communities. A major effort came in 2002 by designing and developing a 142-unit senior living campus in Eden Prairie, MN.

The uniqueness of this community was further enhanced when the Transitional Care Unit opened in 2003. The Transitional Care Unit is a 25-bed nursing facility focusing on rehabilitation services. In 2011, TWSL developed a 77-unit assisted living project near downtown Minneapolis.
