Established to operate a curated portfolio of senior living communities in the Great Plains, Arvum Senior Living represents the latest operating company and brand for Discovery Senior Living.

Discovery Senior Living (“Discovery”) is excited to introduce its latest operating company, Arvum Senior Living ("Arvum"). The launch of Arvum marks a significant expansion of Discovery's diverse multi-brand portfolio, solidifying its presence in the heartland of America. This move is a pivotal milestone in Discovery's evolving regional operating company structure, dedicated to delivering exceptional senior living experiences tailored to local seniors. Arvum Senior Living currently manages communities in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Wisconsin and is well-positioned to strategically manage communities throughout the Great Plains region. 

As an operating company of Discovery Senior Living, Arvum will function as a local management company with a dedicated leadership team, leveraging the comprehensive support services provided by the Discovery Operational Support Center located at the company's Florida headquarters. This initiative reflects Discovery's commitment to enhancing the quality of senior living while maintaining a strong regional focus.

Richard Totorico, a tenured Discovery leader assumes the role of Division Chief Operating Officer for Arvum, further strengthening the executive leadership team. Totorico brings to his newly created role more than 30 years of healthcare administration experience working in acute care, community-based, and senior living settings. He previously served as Regional Director of Operations for SummerHouse Senior Living as well as Executive Director of The Trace. Totorico has a Master of Business Administration degree, is a veteran of the armed forces, and as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force, he received the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal for his work as an F-15 Crew Chief.
