Our History

Solvere taps into the talents of an exceptional team of professionals with backgrounds in business, finance, operations and marketing, including some of America’s most highly-recognized senior housing providers. Solvere Living and its partner company, Solutions Advisors, collaborate with senior housing partners that span the entire country.

Founders Kristin Ward and Lauren Messmer, each coming from senior living backgrounds,  launched their company that would eventually become Solvere in 2009.  

With Kristin bringing more than 20 years of management experience in the senior living industry beginning her career as a nursing home administrator; and Lauren providing over 15 years of strategic marketing experience – the pair faced an uphill battle undertaking challenging assignments for communities reeling from the effects of the recession with low occupancy and dwindling wait lists.

Since then, Solvere has grown exponentially as the senior living industry, too, has evolved. What has remained a constant over the years however, is the determination, tenacity and spirit of entrepreneurship that grew Solvere from a small company to an industry leader in senior living management in less than a decade.

Passion for Greatness

There’s no denying it. The passion to inspire others is what drives Solvere. Passion can’t be learned or taught. It’s an intense passion that energizes us to bring out the best in every partner relationship; community resident, family member, staff member, developer, owner and Solvere’s own team members. That’s what differentiates Solvere in its approach to senior housing, be it a new development or a community in need of turnaround or growth. Passion is where it starts. It is passion that gets us up in the morning and passion that motivates us to work longer, harder and smarter to provide our clients with value-driven, innovative solutions.

Our Unique Point of View

Our very name – Solvere – Latin for “to solve,” embodies our sole mission; to create value-driven, innovative solutions. While many larger firms rely on standardized solutions, Solvere digs deep and wide to get to know the customer, the market, the competition and the community – inside out. Our years of experience have taught us that every community is one-of-a-kind, so Solvere crafts original management action plans for every community. Our top-to-bottom management skills and value-driven, innovative, engaging programs assure optimal return on your investment dollars.

Our core values play a central and critical role in everything we do. Solvere’s are heartfelt, deliberate and steadfast. We put owners’ and customers’ needs first and foremost. We value integrity in our work, transparency in our relationships and loyalty among ourselves and to those with whom we are privileged to work.
