Revere Healthcare, Ltd., the Developer and Operator

Development.  Revere’s senior and special populations housing and healthcare professionals have maintained a watchful eye on the growing number of seniors, individuals with disabilities, young adults with autism, and other special populations and their increasing need for quality, attractive, affordable housing. Our development consulting services are in response to the growing, changing and complex needs, challenges and expenditures faced by senior housing and long-term care providers.

Today’s populations are looking for all the comforts of home with all the perks of a five-star hotel. The provider’s challenge is to offer more amenities and services while maintaining affordability. Revere observed the trend early, but most importantly, saw the need and is doing something about it. Revere has taken the initiative to study various means to provide comfortable quality living units at an affordable price. We have devised an affordable process for you to create an affordable project for your residents.

Typical units are affordable and comfortable, with plentiful common areas for dining, lounging, or socializing with neighbors. Revere has made the concept affordable by working directly with experienced, professional design-build firms to create a prototype that keeps construction costs well within sight.

With over $500,000,000 in financing and development oversight, Revere’s growth has been the result of satisfying the needs of senior living clients. The scope of Revere’s consulting services incorporates comprehensive feasibility analysis, financing options, and project management to produce creatively financed, well-managed, and strategically located facilities.
