In 2019 Eric decided to continue his adventure by taking all of his deep rooted development experience and blend it with his extensive resort style hotel experience to create a superb Senior Living experience. “Why not take the Senior Living Facility experience to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL? Put Senior Living Residents in a Resort styled hotel, mix it with excellent healthcare, and pamper the residents with immaculate hospitality, good food, and entertainment like no other community offers in Brevard County?” That is when he decided to continue the dynasty at Brevard Medical City and become the new Executive Director of the Community Chateau Madeleine Senior Living.
