"Our firm brought The Source in to educate our architectural team on designing multifamily Senior Living communities with Minnesota Department of Health licensure in mind. Licensure influences not only the design of each facility, but also the process in which our clients need to navigate. Having the ability to help our clients prepare for what they'll need to understand to open their buildings and care for the elderly population has been invaluable to our firm. We will continue to use The Source as an asset to our team during projects and recommend to our clients as well." Sarah Kern, Kaas Wilson Architects
“Michael helped my partners and me assess the feasibility of turning an existing facility into an AL. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge of all things Assisted Living. He could speak to all local codes and had a firm understanding about the financial feasibility- which is rare!” – Jude Homola, Windsor Engineers/Private Developer
"Assisted Living in Minnesota changed dramatically in August of 2021. As an owner, operator, and developer, my first call is to Michael. Micheal is one of just a few experts in Minnesota with an explicit understanding of the complexities of the new Assisted Living building standards. I am grateful for his expertise as he has protected our most precious resources of time, money, and emotional capital. Working with Michael is a wise investment in yourself and project."
