Radiant Senior Living Welcomes The Renaissance Assisted Living Community


Radiant Senior Living has acquired The Renaissance, a 64-unit Assisted Living and Memory Care Community located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Radiant owns and operates 19 independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities in 6 western states (Oregon, Washington, Montana, Colorado, Nevada, and now Idaho).   In addition to continuing all of the successful programs The Renaissance has in place, Radiant brings a wealth of senior living experience and innovative programs to the community. 

Radiant will begin the ownership transition immediately and will be working with the current ownership for a smooth and positive transition.    

“Our mission at Radiant Senior Living is to create and sustain comfortable, caring environments for those who depend on us. That mission is considered when making each decision we make and with each action we take,” said Jodi Guffee, Chief Operations Officer for Radiant Senior Living. 

“The city of Coeur D’Alene is a thriving location for people of all ages seeking the adventure and quality of life that Northern Idaho is famous for. To meet the increasing need for housing and healthcare options for seniors in the area, Radiant will immediately begin construction of a 16-unit expansion of The Renaissance in August, 2018, bringing the total size of the community to 80 units,” said James Guffee, President and CEO of Radiant Senior Living. The new state of the art building is scheduled to be completed in February of 2019.

An interesting parallel between the buyer and seller: both companies have been owned by families dedicated to senior care – The Glauser Family and the Weber Family at The Rennaisance and the Guffee family with Radiant.   That parallel gets even more fascinating as both Valeri Glauser and Jodi Guffee became interested in Senior Living due to each of their fathers owning senior living communities. Both Valeri and Jodi started volunteering and working with their fathers at their respective companies as adolescents.

The Renaissance at Coeur d’Alene is located in Coeur d’Alene, ID just a couple miles north of Interstate 90.  The community is centrally located close to medical and dental offices as well as the Kootenai Medical Center. The Renaissance boasts a beautiful French chateau-style architecture and unique interior designs hand-picked for the community. Care services are offered based on an individualized assessment of each resident’s needs and preferences.
