VP Operations Senior Living

The following depicts common words used by clients, colleagues, former bosses and people that worked for me in their recommendations posted on LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/in/artcarr).

to discuss how these skills & attributes – as well as the concepts discussed in this senior living industry blog – can benefit your organization in meeting today’s challenges and preparing for the future.

A nationally recognized business journalist wrote that I am “one of the most articulate people” she had met in the senior services sector and further observed, “Affable, talented, with a razor-sharp intellect, he [Art] once managed operations worth over a billion in today’s dollars and earned the respect of employees and customers alike.”  Adept at managing multi-site operations, I have been acclaimed for my operations and financial executive leadership ability and business acumen in organizations of all sizes – from fledgling enterprises to established industry leaders.

My extensive professional experience includes a solid track record of more than 20 years of highly profitable successes in strong leadership roles within the senior housing and health care industry.  Having analyzed best practices in today’s assisted and independent living communities, I have developed the proprietary Progressive Retirement Lifestyles program to deliver a superior resident-centered culture that enhances perceived value for residents and their families and provides attractiveness to younger, higher-functioning aging adults.

CALL TODAY ►►► 615-414-5217 ◄◄◄ to learn how this comprehensive program serves as a novel BRANDING campaign, creates differentiation from competitors and stimulates demand for your services.  Turn your community(s) into a destination location for the next generation of seniors with more move-ins, fewer move-outs and an increased average length of stay.

  1. Hey I am so thrilled I found your blog page, I really found you by mistake, while I was browsing on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a fantastic post and a all round entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.


  2. I was very thankful of your FREE consulting trial. I need not expect much from it only a sales pitch, only to find out you gave me a 3 part action plan which I have started. Thanks again.. Roger


    • Roger,
      Glad to have been a benefit. Let me know the results of the action plan we discussed and then let’s get together to work out a plan to take your organization to the next step as you recognize your full potential.


  3. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written
    article. I will be sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful information.
    Thanks for the post. I will certainly return.


  4. Admiring the dedication you put into your blog and in depth information you offer.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old
    rehashed material. Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and
    I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.


  5. I need to to thank you for this great read!! I absolutely enjoyed every bit of it.
    I’ve got you bookmarked to check out new things you post…


  6. Spot on with this write-up, I seriously believe that this
    web site needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read
    more, thanks for the information!


  7. What you composed made a great deal of sense.
    However, think about this, what if you wrote a catchier post title?
    I am not saying your information isn’t solid., but suppose you added
    a headline that makes people want more? I mean About the Author | Progressive Retirement Lifestyles is a little vanilla.

    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to get people to click.

    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what
    you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
