Distinctive Living acquires Validus Senior Living to expand its national footprint

Distinctive Living has acquired Validus Senior Living Management, which indicates a significant expansion, bringing 10 Inspired Living communities across three states under its management, in addition to other Validus communities.

Freehold-based Distinctive Living, under the leadership of CEO Joseph Jedlowski, aims to enhance service quality and operational efficiency across its growing portfolio.

“This acquisition provides a unique opportunity for Distinctive Living to extend our reach and enhance our capabilities. It’s a strategic alignment that allows us to better meet the diverse needs of our residents, staff and investors while pursuing thoughtful growth,” Jedlowski said.

Lindsey Hacker, former president of Validus Senior Living, has been appointed as the executive vice president and chief financial officer of Distinctive Living, indicating a robust integration of leadership teams from both companies. The Inspired Living communities will retain their brand identity, and the merger is poised to bring combined strengths to the forefront, enhancing the overall service delivery.

This acquisition not only signifies growth, but also reinforces Distinctive Living’s commitment to being a leading provider of senior care solutions, striving for excellence in every aspect of its operations.

Since its inception in 2020, Distinctive Living has rapidly emerged as a key player in the senior living sector. Recognized by Senior Housing News as an operator to watch in 2023, the company currently operates 46 communities, with an additional 14 under development through its Distinctive Living Development platform.

As the CEO of New Jersey-based Distinctive Healthcare, Jedlowski showcases his commitment to excellence and innovation in senior care. His leadership has been instrumental in transforming operational practices and enhancing the lives of thousands of seniors.
