A Letter from Erickson Living CEO Alan Butler


July 1, 2020

Dear Members of Our Erickson Living family,

As we enter the second half of the calendar year, I am filled with pride about how well we've managed the challenges COVID-19 has presented. I also feel confident in our ability to maintain our position as a leader in the senior living industry.

Just like our country, our managed communities are slowly and carefully reopening as state and local requirements allow. Independent living residents are once again able to work in their gardens and enjoy outdoor exercise. Many of our community salons, fitness centers, indoor pools, and other amenities have reopened with protocols in place to protect everyone on campus. In most areas we are welcoming visitors back on campus in a controlled manner in accordance with guidelines from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and local health departments. Additionally, several of our campuses have resumed refurbishing work on available apartment homes as we plan to welcome new residents.

I am pleased to report that development projects at existing communities will soon commence, as will construction of Siena Lakes, our new community in Naples, Florida. The Sales Center at Avery Point, the community we are developing in Richmond, Virginia, has also launched its sales and marketing program.

Marketing efforts have started back up, with sales offices opening for limited one-on-one appointments and sales teams offering new ways to connect with prospects who want to enjoy the security and camaraderie our lifestyle provides. We have an amazing story to tell about our united response to the COVID-19 pandemic and, like you, I am excited to share it.

The past few months have certainly had their challenges, but they have also reinforced that we are a strong, stable company that can navigate the most difficult of situations. Our residents, employees, and loved ones have proven that if we work together, we can overcome any obstacle. I have full confidence in our reopening efforts, and I am convinced that we will emerge from this pandemic stronger and better positioned for both short- and long-term success.

Thank you again for your continued partnership, your trust, and your resilience. You are the reason Erickson Living-managed communities continue to be such enviable places to live and work.

Warm regards,

R. Alan Butler
Chief Executive Officer
