Acts Retirement-Life Communities has entered into an agreement to affiliate with Integrace.

The company will assume management and operate Integrace’s four senior living  communities throughout Maryland, effective May 1.

Integrace, which was founded in 1974, is a not-for-profit system with the communities of  Bayleigh Chase in Easton; Buckingham’s Choice in Adamstown; Fairhaven in Sykesville; and Copper Ridge in Sykesville, along with the research-oriented The Integrace Institute.

“Our affiliation with Integrace is an exciting opportunity for Acts as our organizations share a common mission, values and desire to enrich the lives of seniors,” said Gerald T. Grant, Acts President and CEO. “We are excited to welcome Integrace into the Acts family, further strengthening both organizations and helping to secure a positive future for all the residents and staff under our care.”

Acts currently operates Heron Point of Chestertown in Maryland. After the affiliation, Acts will manage a network of 27 faith-based senior living communities in nine states totaling 9,504 units. This will make it the third-largest multi-site senior living organization.
