    Hope you are doing well!

    I am contacting you on behalf of Tranzon IPG with some news that might be appropriate for your ‘Assisted Living News’ section.

    On August 5, the firm will be auctioning off a $14.5 million recently completed Assisted Living Facility at a reserve price of $3.5 million. The center is located in Middlesex County, CT and is 72 units, 90,000 +/- sq. ft. and sits on 12 + acres of land. After incurring significant construction costs, the Owner has simply been unable to devote the appropriate resources towards marketing the facility.

    If you think this story would be of interest to your readers, I would be happy to send over the complete press release and/or set up some time for you to speak with a representative from Tranon IPG.

    I work for a company called Classroom24-7 and I was interested in discussing with you a potential advertising campaign to run on your blog.

    I currently work with the Florida Health Care Association and the American Health Lawyers Association capturing exceptional live Continuing Legal Education & Continuing Education content, which we then distribute to their members and other organizations with related interests. Our content is delivered through a rich multimedia online platform. My goal is to attract Health Lawyers, and Health Care Professionals who might be interested in exceptional video lectures they can watch anytime, anywhere and receive professional development credits as well as Continuing Education Credits.

    I was interested in speaking with you about running an ad on your site.

    I look forward to speaking with you soon.

    All the best,

    I have a 4,000 sq ft bldg in the SF Bay Area. My realtor suggested that I build it out for an assisted living facility (to lease it to a facility operator)- but most of the info that I can find online is about people who run a facility in their own homes, or the big commercial facilities. I’m trying to figure out if an in-between solution is feasible. Any suggestions on where to look for contacts or info?

    Gus, residential assisted living homes are very popular, and there are people who can consult you on that. If you visit our “how to open an assisted living facility’ page there is a lot of information there, and some people who have commented that do consulting. Visit: How To Open A Facility
