Get To Know Us

Canopy Lifestyles was founded in 2013 by Partners, David Lovell, MD and Dennis Stamey, each entrepreneurs who passionately believe that providing exceptional services to seniors, and a great place for our team members to work is the right thing to do.

Canopy Lifestyles partners have extensive experience dedicated to the design, development, construction, operation and management of senior living residences. It has been our exclusive specialization for the vast majority of our individual careers, and is the sole purpose of our shared organization.

While the senior living industry has no shortage of participants, we are pleased to be able to offer a level of expertise that will remain unsurpassed by comparison.

Canopy Lifestyles creates exceptional senior living environments; where older adults can continue to enjoy their lives and age in place, even as it becomes more difficult to live in their own homes, yet they do not require the services of a traditional nursing home or skilled care facility. Additionally, we are pleased to offer in-home care services, skilled nursing care and physician house call services.
