Mike joined Senior Housing Options in 2022 as Director of Operations with 13 years of dedicated service and experience in senior living. Mike started his career in senior living to honor his dad who was suffering from dementia. Upon entering the senior living field, he found his true passion and calling. He started as an activities professional and a caregiver, quickly moving up in his career and became an Executive Director. Prior to working in senior living Mike worked in private country clubs in hospitality and food service.
Mike’s passion outside of work is his family and spending time at the racetrack with his son or watching his daughter dance her heart out. He is also an avid outdoorsman and owns a small hobby farm in Colorado.
Meet Michael a resident of the Olin Hotel Apartments, one of Senior Housing Options’ subsidized apartments.
This 73-year-old man ended up homeless, spending his days in the library and nights on the buses to stay warm after losing his job then subsequently his apartment.
Michael found the Olin and has been able to make it his home. He now has stability and can focus on more than where he’s going to find security for a single night.
He’s managing his health and looking for ways to help others.
While Michael is an extraordinary man who is compassionate and funny, his story of struggle is not unique. It’s because of residents like Michael that Senior Housing Options is dedicated to providing and promoting quality, affordable housing and caring supportive services for older adults in Colorado.
