The financing will support the senior care technology solutions provider as it continues to expand the reach of its remote monitoring platform throughout senior living communities and homes across the nation. The company’s eNeighbor passive monitoring and analytics technology enables caregivers to detect emerging health concerns before they turn into emergencies.

Using Healthsense technology, care providers can also receive automatic alerts for emergent situations like falls, minimizing the potential harmfulness of such events. 

Integrating these solutions into homes, including residences in senior living communities, can help meet the monitoring and oversight needs of individuals throughout the continuum of care and help them stay independent and healthy for as long as possible.

“The addition of respected investors and industry leaders like Merck GHIF and Fallon Community Health Plan supports our belief that our technology and approach can both improve quality and reduce cost. Both companies represent strong strategic alliances for us at this important point in our growth,” said Brian Bischoff, CEO of Healthsense. “As we go forward, our attention will increasingly focus on enhancing care models to advance the adoption of remote monitoring in health management.”

Ziegler Closes $71 Million Financing for Calif. Senior Community

Speciality investment bank Ziegler recently announced the closing of a $71,035,000 fixed-rate, Series 2012 Bond issue for The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens.

The Terraces at San Joaquin Garden (TSJG) corporation was formed for the purpose of redevelopment, expansion, ownership, and operation of an existing senior living community, also called The Terraces at San Joaquin Garden, located in Fresno, Calif. The community is currently comprised of 176 residential living apartments, 42 assisted living apartments, 22 memory support assisted living apartments, and 84 skilled nursing beds.

Prior to this bond issuance, TSJG (the community) was a member of the American Baptist Homes of the West (ABHOW) Obligated Group, a California-based nonprofit public benefit corporation and an affiliate of the TSJG corporation. Concurrently with the bond issuance, ABHOW, the current owner and operator of TSJG, will transfer ownership to the TSJG corporation. ABHOW will continue to serve as the community’s manager.

ABHOW recognized the need for revitalization of TSJG, says Ziegler, and in 2005 approved a multi-phase redevelopment to modernize the campus. Upon completion, the redeveloped community will have 262 residential living apartments, 62 assisted living apartments, 24 memory support assisted living apartments, and 54 skilled nursing beds. At that point, 76% of all residential living apartments will be new or fully renovated, while 100% of the assisted living, memory support, and nursing levels of care will be new or fully renovated.

The proceeds of the Series 2012 Bonds will be used to pay certain costs of the project, fund debt service reserve funds for each series, pay a portion of the interest on the Series 2012 Bonds during construction and the first six months of operation of the project, and pay certain costs relating to the issuance of the bonds.

“ABHOW’s financial objectives were to minimize the amount and cost of debt for TSJG, while  protecting the core credit’s rating and preserving future borrowing capacity for other redevelopments in process within the obligated group,” said Mary Munoz, managing director in Ziegler’s Senior Living practice. “These objectives were met through creative ‘recycling’ of entrance fees multiple times in the phasing process; funding a portion of the project with subordinated loans from ABHOW; and seizing the current low interest rate environment to spin the community out of the obligated group.”
