As a leader in providing a variety of retirement living options,
we are committed to responding to the changing and growing needs
of today's seniors. We understand that the first of the baby boomers
has already turned 60. We know that by 2030 when these first baby
boomers reach the age of 84, there will be 69 million Americans
over the age of 65. We can visualize what the future is bringing
and we are growing to meet the needs of more active adults today
and into the future.
We will continue to strive to be the optimal means which frees
all those we serve to experience the fullness of their lives. We'll
do this by continuing to develop new communities and other senior-based
services to meet the needs of seniors for many years to come. It's
about freedom and creating opportunities for our residents to experience
independence, choices, dignity, individuality, nurturing of the
spirit and involvement of others.
