Mission Continues as Growth of Company Exemplifies the Best in Retirement Living

REDMOND, Wash., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- It is well documented; demand for senior housing will outpace supply in the coming years. Couple that trend with aging boomers who expect more out of life and the future of the senior housing industry looks very different than it did a decade ago. One company leading the wave of change is Aegis Living, a national leader in senior living and assisted living communities.

Where should I live? and Who will provide the highest quality service? are questions that need to be answered for the millions moving into their later senior years. For some, the answer can be found in thirty-four retirement communities on the West Coast managed by visionary Dwayne Clark and his award-winning company, Aegis Living.

Despite the recession, Aegis is experiencing growth and prosperity allowing it to move ahead with communities that not only enrich the eye with beauty but also stimulate the mind with innovative programs. Currently the company is moving ahead with plans on several communities, including Bellevue, WA and Palm Desert, CA. These new communities will serve the ever-increasing needs of the growing West Coast senior population, offering the best in senior living through a myriad of services and amenities.

"We're the people who make life better."

When Dwayne was growing up, his grandmother lived in a gloomy, cramped retirement home staffed by listless nurses with blank stares. "No one would want to visit, let alone live there," Dwayne said. "I thought, 'Why do people think this is acceptable?'"

Dwayne founded Aegis Living with a simple but revolutionary manifesto: Treat all people with the highest degree of respect, compassion, and care.

Aegis Living is always developing innovative ways to improve health, quality of life, well-being and sense of community for its residents. That attitude has made Aegis Living a national leader in retirement and assisted living.

Aegis Living has been honored with multiple awards over the years. It was honored as one of the "Best Companies to Work For" five years in a row by Washington CEO Magazine. CEO Dwayne Clark was named "Health Entrepreneur of the Year" by Ernst and Young, and recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Senior Services on behalf of all the work he has done to change the industry.

In the near future, Aegis will open new communities. And it will continue growth on the West Coast, both "physically" through its new communities and "mentally" with innovative programs and exceptional staff to care for residents 24/7.

Living 4 Life, a new way of living for seniors

Through its new and innovative wellness program, Living 4 Life, Aegis is bringing to light an exclusive way to enhance and maximize life, health, and well-being through services and amenities that parallel world-class living. Living 4 Life is a wellness program that combines elements of mind, body, spirit and community to help maintain a long, healthy and active life for seniors. The program includes affiliations with faculty from local universities and Technogym, bringing together the best minds in their fields to maximize the benefits for all residents.

Employee First

In order to provide the best care possible for their residents, Aegis recruits the most highly skilled caregivers and provides them with a thorough training program. In an industry that suffers from a 93 percent turnover rate, Aegis retains the majority of its employees for one of the lowest turnover rates. The company also created the Potato Soup Foundation to provide emergency aid to employees who need it.
