Founder and CEO Stephen L. Rosedale established the CommuniCare Family of Companies in 1984. As a young man, Steve worked in various healthcare environments and developed a passion for caring. He continued to study the art and science of aging at Brandeis University, where he sparked a close relationship with Professor Morrie Schwartz (of the famous book, “Tuesdays with Morrie”). A concept that struck a chord in his heart and has since remained vibrant is the concept of “therapeutic milieu.” This is defined as the impact of a holistic environment, comprised of people, clinical programs, physical environments, etc. that create a healing environment where a person can thrive. Since then, Steve has been on a mission to build Caring Communities that cater to the unspoken needs of our guests and residents.
