About JEA Senior Living

Our Mission

We are JEA Senior Living. A premier, progressive senior living management company with over 50 communities in 23 states. With services from independent living, assisted living, and even specialized memory care, our community care teams manage all levels of care, allowing our residents to age-in-place. Our approach of honoring aging provides our resident families with peace-of-mind and instills confidence in trusting us with their loved one’s care.

Our legacy started 35-years ago when our founder lost his own mother to Alzheimer’s disease. His discovery of the dearth of specialized dementia care options, led him to develop a better care solution. Building his first dedicated memory care community in Tumwater, WA. This community would be the first in a portfolio of successful senior living communities nationwide, catering to individuals with memory loss through exceptional care, personalization, and engagement. 

Now with 35 years in operation, JEA owns 15 senior living communities and currently manages 53, operating in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.

Our Difference

People living with memory loss face greater challenges than most of us. Being unable to remember life’s most cherished moments is a difficult path, but not a hopeless one. JEA Senior Living recognizes that these individuals haven’t lost the capacity to experience joy and are able to continue leading meaningful lives.

That’s the basis for our Meaningful Moments program. This unique approach to caring for those with dementia goes beyond merely making these individuals safe and comfortable. It’s a family-centered concept that starts by learning everything there is to know about our residents – their passions, achievements, careers, family, hobbies and interests. This allows our staff to create moments of real meaning that engage our residents emotionally, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.

It also helps bond caregivers to the resident, so they are able to see more than their current condition and recognize them for the singular and exceptional person they are. By creating this profound connection, Meaningful Moments establishes a strong foundation of trust and well-being from which residents are able to create new memories and thrive in an environment of exceptional care.
