Brookdale Sets Plan in Motion to Change Perception of Senior Living

As the largest senior living provider in the country, Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE: BKD) is advancing its industry leadership role through a new national branding and communications initiative beginning today. Brookdale’s campaign is designed to provoke audiences to rethink their views of senior living and to capture the essence of the close relationships formed every day between the company’s 80,000 associates and nearly 100,000 residents. As part of the campaign, the company is undertaking a broad range of initiatives to evolve the perception of senior living and demonstrate how innovative approaches and services at Brookdale can transform lives.

“We continue to move forward on our objective to develop the preeminent senior living brand, and we believe this campaign will create a cultural redefinition of the value that an innovative senior living provider can bring to people’s lives,” said Will Clark, Brookdale’s senior vice president of strategy and innovation. “Brookdale is bringing new life to the traditional view of senior living. We focus our energy on enabling seniors to live their lives to the fullest – and in doing so changing the myths and perceptions of senior living. As the largest senior living provider in the country, we have the opportunity and I believe the responsibility to lead this conversation.”

Brookdale is bringing visibility to its mission of “enriching lives every day” through an extensive national television and multi-channel branding and marketing campaign, including digital, direct mail, print, social media, and local community outreach. The campaign showcases real Brookdale associates whose unscripted stories help to counter some long held stigmas about senior living. It is also backed by a number of operational and innovation platforms that will sync with the effort, looking forward.
