History at Parsons Group Inc. in Santa Barbara, California

Our History

In 1984 Bob and Alyce Parsons founded the Parsons Group Inc. (PGI) with the acquisition of five SRO hotels in California, Texas and Nebraska serving low income seniors. In 1988, with the advent of Assisted Living, these services were added to the communities.

Assisted Living was emerging throughout the United States as the best way to serve seniors and their families who saw aging not as a disease but as an important and delicate stage in life. They were motivated by distaste for nursing facilities and were committed finding needed support for loved ones with a strong emphasis on a consumer centered personal care, residential environments, and strong social programming. Families desired to have mom or dad live where they could receive the support they would need to successfully age in place.

Eventually, the world of Assisted Living found a place on Wall Street with robust interest from the financial markets, hospitality industry and others.
