Vitality Senior Living is a portfolio company of West Partners, LLC. Vitality expands West
Partners senior housing presence across the U.S. to parallel its successful senior housing
company, West Living, LLC, which operates in the western third of the country. West
Partners makes direct investments in private companies with a long-term investment
horizon. The ultimate goal of West Partners is to fund the West Familys philanthropic
legacy in perpetuity.
West Partners is part of the West Family, which includes the Gary and Mary West

Our partnership with West brings unique perspective to the organization, says Guay. Our
communities will feature nurturing and engaging environments and will offer the latest
from a wellness, care, design, service and amenity perspective. Perhaps our most defining
difference, however, will be the shared dedication to ensuring successful aging and the
philanthropic spirit that will emanate throughout our communities.
