HumanGood, California’s largest non-profit provider of senior housing and services, and Presby’s Inspired Life (Presby), a regional leader of continuing care and affordable housing for seniors in greater Philadelphia, announced today that the two organizations are joining in an affiliation which is expected to be finalized by June 30, 2019.  The affiliated organization will be the sixth largest national non-profit senior living provider.  

The two senior living industry leaders will come together to create a united organization with increased competitive advantage, relevance, reach and impact on a national scale. HumanGood and Presby share similar missions as non-profit, faith-based organizations that are focused on providing exceptional living experiences and enhancing the lives of all older adults.

Specifically, the affiliation will allow the united organization to enhance performance and care, create more opportunities for team members across a wider network of communities and provide greater resources for additional continuing care and affordable housing communities, as well as new products and services. 

“Coming together with Presby is a big win for both of our teams,” said John Cochrane, CEO of HumanGood. “At HumanGood, we believe in inspiring the best life possible for our residents and team members and we are excited to join with an organization that shares the same belief. Our united organization will have a greater mission impact and together, we will do more good for more people.”

Once the affiliation is complete, HumanGood CEO John Cochrane will assume leadership of the united organization. Presby’s Inspired Life CEO Judee M. Bavaria will continue working with the organization supporting the transition until December 2019.

“Presby’s Inspired Life has spent the last six decades discovering innovative and creative ways to expand its housing options to meet the growing demand for senior housing across the socio-economic spectrum in the Philadelphia region,” said Judee M. Bavaria, president & CEO of Presby’s Inspired Life. “We are excited to join forces with HumanGood to elevate our collective services to older adults and continue to break ground in the field of aging communities and services.”
