At Sagora Senior Living we are constantly creating new experiences to engage our residents and find exciting ways to showcase how amazing they are and how much fun we have! This fall we have a real treat to share, and we want you to get involved too!
In honor of The Bachelor’s first senior bachelor, the ‘Golden Bachelor’, Sagora is on the hunt for our own Sagora Silver Bachelor! Let us be the first to say – these gentlemen truly bring the wow factor to our communities!
Over the past few weeks, we invited our team members from around the country to nominate single bachelors from their Independent Living community for the chance to be selected as Sagora’s Silver Bachelor. Each nominee answered questions about themselves, and our team members have done an amazing job of promoting their community’s eligible bachelor as the possible first Sagora’s Silver Bachelor.
We are excited to introduce you to our nominees! Starting Today, September 29 we will share each bachelor on our social media pages and the voting period will begin. We invite our friends, families, team members, and community partners to join in on the fun!

You will never catch Frank in a bad mood, as a matter of fact, Frank can’t even recall a day where he didn’t wake up in a good mood. The reason is because he used to teach religious studies to children, teenagers, and adults.
