Emeritus Senior Living's brand promise, "Our Family is Committed to Yours." describes the fostering atmosphere at its communities, which is focused on family and community, creating a sense of place and belonging.
Additionally, the Company's communities in California, Connecticut and Kentucky have been renamed to include "Emeritus" in the community name in order to brand each as a part of the national Emeritus family, which is synonymous throughout the senior living industry for exceptional service, quality and professionalism. Florida, Texas and Ohio markets are undergoing name changes throughout 2009 as the Company has prioritized its 33 shared markets, which contain 122 Emeritus communities, so as to improve market positioning and sales conversion efficiency.
