About Us
A People-First Philosophy

Headquartered in Camillus, New York, Hearth Management owns and operates premier senior living communities across the East and Midwest, providing award-winning Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care for over 1,000 seniors. 

Hearth Management’s philosophy is to nurture the mind, body, and spirit throughout life’s journey. Senior living is what we do, and we’ve built our legacy on four core values: quality of life, resident care, exceptional service, and affordability. These cornerstones ensure each Hearth community is a welcoming place for you or your loved one to Live More®. We take the stress and responsibilities out of our residents’ day-to-day, so they can enjoy and experience every day more fully.

Our Past & Present

Over time, Hearth Management has maintained a care-centric approach and focus on quality, while using its cumulative data, research, and experience to develop acclaimed programs and services. Some of the key attributes that set Hearth communities apart are: 

  • A high ratio of caregivers to residents, exceeding state standards
  • Onsite physical, occupational, and speech therapists 
  • Signature programs and services for resident enrichment and well-being
  • Total Coverage 360 cleaning and disinfecting system
  • Gourmet Hearth-Healthy dining program
  • Innovative recreational offerings, including Rendever virtual reality systems

Our progressive, leading-edge service model is poised to meet the challenges of today, but also ready to adapt to the changes of tomorrow. As the industry and the world change, Hearth Management remains a flexible and nimble organization. Our size provides the scale necessary to successfully manage any project, while still being able to learn, grow, and adapt quickly. The lifestyles, programs, and services at Hearth communities create ideal outcomes at a value that enables seniors and families to thrive with us for life.
