A Message From Our CEO

Thank You For 15 Years 

This May Sonata Senior Living is celebrating our 15th Anniversary. As CEO and Co-Founder of Sonata, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the countless families, partners, and amazing Sonata team members who have made these 15 years possible.

Sonata was founded to “raise the bar in senior living.” Over the years, our constant pursuit of excellence and commitment to being the “best of the best” helped Sonata receive numerous awards and establish ourselves as a trusted employer and provider of senior living. If awards and growth are any indication of success, then we’ve done a pretty good job, but the reality is, NONE of it would have been possible without each of us committing to the core values that drive our daily actions and the devoted team members that embrace them.

Most companies have corporate values, but at Sonata, our team members don’t just talk about them, they live them. Here’s how:

Excellence – people who work at Sonata are never content to stop at “good enough.” Instead, I see team members challenging themselves to provide outstanding service to everyone at all times. It’s an amazing sight to witness!

Integrity – honesty, principles and authenticity are three words that come to mind when we talk about our team members who give selflessly of themselves to our residents every day.

Passion – we wouldn’t be working in senior living without a shared enthusiasm, genuine and heartfelt drive to serve seniors in our communities. We love and treat them like family.

Respect – we are in constant awe of the consideration, thoughtfulness, and attentiveness that our team members bestow on our residents. It’s what sets Sonata apart.

Teamwork – as the “T” in our Sonata STARS, every team member working in a Sonata Senior Living community understands that the sum of our efforts is far more important and greater than the parts. It gives us the right to brag about our culture.

I am so grateful for the past 15 years and incredibly excited for the next. It is truly a privilege to get out of bed every day and do what we do. We are continually inspired by older adults and by the residents that call Sonata home. We believe in being true partners with our families to help improve lives, enrich life, and support healthy aging. I personally know many team members who feel the same way and give them all the credit for giving our vision and values purpose.

To all of our Sonata families, residents, partners and team members, THANK YOU for 15 amazing years.
