"We have revolutionized how the United States invests and looks after their Senior Population!"

Build Senior Living was established in 2011 after the CEO Shahid Imran was visiting his friend Sam, who is now the Vice President at a Senior Living community. Shahid was selling medical equipment and Sam was the Medical director.

Shahid, who is originally from Pakistan, couldn’t believe the poor conditions that these people were living in and saw the need to make a change. He and Sam worked together to create the highest standard of Senior Living Communities and to deliver exceptional returns to their investors.
