The Tealwood Story
Tealwood Senior Living started with the belief that senior adults deserved better than what the average facility had to offer. In January 1989, Tealwood Senior Living began business, leasing five established senior living communities. But we wanted to see our care philosophy make more of an impact. We needed to grow.
Growth & Building
In 1992, Tealwood took a new step. Rather than leasing properties, we participated in ownership. The following years were full of growth for us. In 1998, we took on managing a 256-resident community and then designed and developed an independent and assisted living community in 2002.
That same year, the core team behind Tealwood Senior Living established Tealwood Management. This organization allowed us to manage our own communities and manage communities owned by other companies. Today, we operate 30 of our own communities, including freestanding assisted living communities, skilled nursing centers, and larger campuses.
Around 2008, we partnered with Trident Development to co-develop 18 senior housing projects.
Over time, our focus shifted from building design and clinical services to our residents’ needs and desires. In 2008, Tealwood began a company-wide focus on wellness. Using the 7 Dimensions of Wellness as a foundation, we developed programming to foster our residents’ physical, mental, and emotional health. Today, all of our communities use this programming.
