Emeritus Corporation (NYSEESC) doing business as Emeritus Senior Living is a provider of independent living, assisted living, Alzheimer’s/memory care, and skilled nursing for seniors living in Emeritus communities throughout the United States. The company was founded in 1993.

Emeritus specializes in assisted living services for seniors who need help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, meals and medications management. Most communities also provide expert care for Alzheimer’s and memory care residents, and offer respite stays for seniors who need short-term stays. As of April 2010, Emeritus is the largest provider in the assisted living industry.[1] Emeritus has locations in 47 states, with several facilities within each state.[2]

Facilities[edit]

Emeritus runs 483 facilities in 45 states. Company revenues were $1.57 billion in 2012.[3]

History[edit]

Controversy[edit]

An episode of Frontline which aired on July 30, 2013 documented the alleged neglect and physical abuses perpetrated on patients by Emeritus.[10] In one civil lawsuit, Joan Boice et al v. Emeritus Corporation, a Sacramento, California jury found Emeritus liable for neglect which apparently resulted in the 2009 death of a patient; the jury assessed the company $23 million in punitive damages.[11] Following the broadcast, Emeritus established the website www.EmeritusFacts.com.[12]
