What We Do and Why

This website is a service of Senior Hospitality International. Our mission is “to serve Seniors by guiding them to communities where they can enjoy Retirement Living at its Healthiest®.” We do this by recognizing communities doing an exceptional job providing their residents healthy lifestyle options for body, mind, soul and spirit, and certifying those communities as Retirement Resorts.

What We Look For

Each community featured on this site has been recognized by Senior Hospitality International for its excellence in 3 criteria:

  • Healthy Campus Amenities (Facilities, Staffing & Programming)
  • Healthy Resident Activities (for Body, Mind, Soul & Spirit)
  • Healthy Community Engagement (Resident Clubs & Groups)

Serving Seniors Never Grows OldTM

I’ve had the privilege on spending most of my first 18 years in South Africa where my parents served as missionaries. This laid the foundation of a unique perspective on the world and a desire to serve God by serving people, especially the older generation. It is written of Jesus that “he came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mt. 20:28). What better example could we have to follow?

For almost thirty years, I have been involved in the Senior Hospitality industry – serving Seniors and Senior-oriented Communities. Our motto, Serving Seniors Never Grows Old™ is true because “buyers remorse” is almost non-existent – if Retirement Resort residents have any regrets, it’s that they didn’t move in sooner! What other product or industry can you say that about?

It is our sincere hope and prayer that you will enjoy the adventure of exploring the amazing Retirement Resorts featured here, that you will discover the perfect one for you, and that you will enjoy a long & healthy life there!

PS. Once you successfully find your ideal Retirement Resort, please send me a note – the Senior Hospitality Intl. team would love to hear your story of exploration and discovery, and how you are enjoying Retirement Living at its Healthiest®.
