Hugh Colson and his son William founded Holiday Retirement Living in 1971 in Salem, Oregon.
The company builds and operates senior living and assisted living facilities in 46 continental states.
By 2007, Holiday Retirement had become the largest owner and manager of assisted living facilities in the world.
In June 2021, Holiday Retirement was acquired by Atria Senior Living Management for an undisclosed amount.
Atria announced that Holiday Retirement would now be rebranded as Holiday Senior Living.
In January 2023, Atria announced that its $2 million renovation project had reached completion.
Holiday Senior Living maintains a corporate office in Winterpark, Florida. It is not yet known if the parent company, Atria, will change or move the corporate office to other facilities or merge the two offices.
