Generations: A Family Tradition of Excellence

Our Generations Communities are part of a rich history of family tradition.

The first Generations Family Community opened in 1943, when Founder Wendell White’s grandparents, Mabel and Alonzo, decided to dedicate themselves to a vision of providing quality care in a home-like environment. Here Wendell developed, along with his grandparents, a great family pride in always pursuing excellence and creating the best possible environment and care for residents like family.

Wendell went on to shepherd into being what was then a brand new concept – Assisted Living. Bringing something to the health care industry that no one had ever seen before, he applied a creative and innovative mind to a previously so institutional sector, paying attention to every detail of design to make the environment feel like home. Putting in a pool, restaurant-style dining, and comfortable social gathering spots, carefully considering hallway length, and insetting apartment doors so residents could personalize their home’s entryway are just a few of the details he focused on. Wendell dared to be different, feeling these things were necessary to cultivate a welcoming and handsome setting worthy of the people who would call us home and to encourage a lifestyle that celebrates living at any age.

As we expanded, the Generations Family, through various partnerships, founded large beautiful resort-style campuses that support services and amenities for diverse needs. Each unique campus offers Independent Living and Assisted Living, with some having established additional excellence through expansions providing Memory Care and Skilled Nursing Rehabilitation.

These creative communities have proudly served tens of thousands of people and have attracted employees of incredible ability and compassion who have fostered a beautiful community culture. We just wish Mabel and Alonzo could see us now.
