Jared Leger, the founder of Hunters Lane Memory Care, has a successful history as an entrepreneur in the healthcare field. Following college, he started a career as a Registered Nurse but quickly found himself on a path to fulfilling community needs by founding a myriad of healthcare companies. Having built a pharmacy chain and ARISE Healthcare, where he is currently the CEO, he also saw a need for Assisted Living communities that provide a home environment for seniors. Hunters Lane Memory Care was created and has since become a family project. His wife Jennifer, and their three daughters, have rooted the community not only in faith, but also in family values. Everyone has helped in some way to make this home a place where we ourselves would all be happy to live.

"As a Registered Nurse and background in healthcare management, I consistently strive to create an environment of care where our teammates truly care for our residents. Here, every person will be treated just as we would want our own mother and father to be cared for. This memory care community is for them, and for other people's parents and that’s the reason my wife and I founded Hunters Lane Memory Care.  The spirit of this place is about caring for people and not about adhering to corporate policies. Our team has the freedom to cater to each resident individually and ensure they are getting extraordinary care every day."
