Welltower Inc., incorporated on April 4, 1985, invests with seniors housing operators, post-acute providers and health systems to fund real estate and infrastructure. The Company invests in seniors housing and healthcare real estate. It operates in three segments: triple-net, seniors housing operating and outpatient medical. Welltower, a real estate investment trust (REIT), owns interests in properties concentrated in markets in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, consisting of seniors housing and post-acute communities, and outpatient medical properties. The Company's primary objectives are to protect stockholder capital and enhance stockholder value.


The Company's triple-net properties include independent living facilities, independent supportive living facilities (Canada), continuing care retirement communities, assisted living facilities, care homes with and without nursing (the United Kingdom), Alzheimer's/dementia care facilities, long-term/post-acute care facilities and hospitals. The Company invests primarily through acquisitions, development and joint venture partnerships. The Company's properties are primarily leased to operators under long-term, triple-net master leases. Its properties include stand-alone facilities that provide one level of service, combination facilities that provide various levels of service, and communities or campuses that provide a range of services.

Care Homes with Nursing are licensed daily rate or rental properties where the individuals require round the clock nursing and medical care. Care Homes are rental properties that provide the same services as the United States assisted living facilities.
