Blair Minton passed away after a battle with COVID-19 on December 16. Minton was among the first senior living providers in the country and among a very few industry leaders to invent the niche of affordable, professionally managed senior living care. Minton was one of the architects for Illinois’s Supportive Living licensure model, which was developed for seniors with little or no means to be able to live in non-institutional settings such as assisted living communities. As a former Argentum Board member, Minton was a passionate voice for affordable senior living care and was remarkable in his advocacy on behalf of residents and the industry.
