We are a provider of senior living services in the United States, Canada and the
United Kingdom. Founded in 1981 and incorporated in Delaware in 1994, Sunrise
began with a simple but innovative vision � to create an alternative senior
living option that would emphasize quality of life and quality of care. We offer
a full range of personalized senior living services, including independent
living, assisted living, care for individuals with Alzheimer�s and other forms
of memory loss, nursing and rehabilitative care. In the past, we also developed
senior living communities for ourselves, for ventures in which we retained an
ownership interest and for third parties. In 2009, due to economic conditions,
we suspended all new development.
At December 31, 2011, we operated 311 communities, including 269 communities in
the United States, 15 communities in Canada and 27 communities in the United
Kingdom, with a total unit capacity of approximately 30,733.
