About Tribute at One Loudoun
Welcome to Thrive and a fresh perspective on senior living. Over a decade ago we took a hard look at traditional senior living. We quickly knew we would not want to visit most of these places, let alone live there; so, we created communities where Elders would not only love to live, but Thrive.
What do most people think of when they see gray hair? They see frailty and disability with low speeds, and high needs. What do we see at Thrive? We see wisdom. We see laughter. We see ability. We see growth. We see potential. We see opportunity. These divergent views from tradition have caused a decade of incredible growth. We have built a company and a team of people who align on these beliefs.
Today we have almost 1,000 team members (employees) in our communities who come to work each day in the pursuit of meaningful relationships with our Elders*. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields. Simply put, our leaders believe that if we love our team well, they will, in turn, love our residents well.
At Thrive, we’ve dedicated our lives to ensure there is purpose in every breath of each resident we’re honored to serve. We understand that Elder...s and their loved ones depend on us not only to live, but to live well. It’s a challenge we welcome – every day.
*We prefer the word ‘Elders’ to ‘seniors’. While senior may be in our name, it doesn’t give this group the respect to which they’re entitled. Seniors is a nice description for a coffee discount, but that’s about it. Elders reflects the wisdom and stories they’ve gained through life experiences. And let’s be honest, it’s only in our name because no one is searching for ‘elder living’ on Google.
