Edgemere Announces Change of Ownership and Management
DALLAS, TX – Edgemere announced the official confirmation of change of ownership and management in the coming weeks. The community will be purchased by Bay 9 Holdings LLC, an affiliate of Lapis Advisers LP, a San Francisco based organization that is committed to supporting the capital needs of the community and re-establishing the level of service excellence of the Edgemere brand. Long Hill at Edgemere LLC (Long Hill) has been named manager of the property. Long Hill, a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Methodist Homes (UMH), a mission-based, not for-profit organization that has been serving seniors since 1874, brings a depth of experience not only in senior living, hospitality, customer service, and life enrichment, but also clinical expertise to help residents successfully age within the continuum of care and services offered at Edgemere.
The collective vision of the new team is guided by Long Hill’s commitment to relationship-centered living and care approaches, according to a release. At its core, this is the belief that forming and maintaining healthy relationships is essential for optimal well-being. To do this, Long Hill looks at resident life and the employee experience through the lens of relationship cultivation, ultimately enriching the lives of residents who call our communities home, and empowering employees who choose to work in the communities they serve.
David Lawlor, President and CEO for Long Hill and UMH shares, “We are excited to become the new managers of Edgemere. In recent months, we’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with many residents and members of the leadership team, who have impressed us greatly. We are honored to be selected to support the Edgemere community and help elevate it to its full potential.”
Edgemere Resident Association President Jim Eckelberger, Rear Admiral, US Navy (Ret) states, “Edgemere residents hit a home run yesterday when the Federal Bankruptcy Court approved a plan that ensures the investments of the residents are whole. That is wonderful news for all who call Edgemere home. In fact, our home at Edgemere has always been the best senior living community in DFW; bankruptcy held that at risk for the past year. Now the risk is gone and the new management company, Long Hill, has committed to bettering what is already a marvelous place to live. We residents are all smiles and ready to welcome new neighbors into our happy community at Edgemere.”
