Stutchman Family Business Recognized with “When The Going Gets Tough” Award
For the past 40 years the Stutchman family has been in the business of senior care, presently owning and operating Arbors Memory Care Community. During their tenure they’ve seen highs and lows in their business, including economic downturns and the death of a husband/father/principal partner. Through it all though, they’ve not only survived, but they’ve been able to thrive.
The Stutchman family was recently recognized by the Nevada Business Magazine through the publication’s annual Family Owned Business Awards. They received the award for “When The Going Get’s Tough.” The winner of this award is defined as “A business that faced adversity and made changes to adapt to what was sure to be a tough time.”
The magazine received several hundred nominations and narrowed those down to three finalists and then one winner in 10 categories for both the South and North part of the state.
Nevada Business Magazine had this to say about the Arbors, “Founded by Connie and Tom Stutchman, Arbors Memory Care Community is in a tough business, assisted living. Couple that with the recent economic downturn and the Arbors had to adapt to survive. Run today by the Stutchman’s daughter, Gina and her husband Jason Lewis, the organization has found a way to adapt their business model and provide affordable, yet quality assisted living.”
Some of the ways the Arbors has adapted is to add triple occupancy to their room mix, creating a more affordable option for families who need care for their over one with Alzheimer’s. They also began to offer fixed-rate, all-inclusive pricing which enabled families to count on a consistent monthly amount for care throughout their family member’s entire stay. Lastly the Arbors remodel project has just begun as well which will provide an even brighter and more inviting environment for residents and staff.
“We are absolutely thrilled to win this award and to be recognized by the business community for our years of dedication to quality senior care in Northern Nevada. We look forward to caring for our seniors and providing jobs in the Reno/Sparks community for another 40 years,” says owner Gina Stutchman.
