The Company's portfolio consists of investments in various healthcare segments: senior housing, post-acute/skilled nursing, life science, medical office and hospital. Its portfolio includes owned portfolio, unconsolidated joint ventures, and developments and redevelopments.

Senior housing

The Company has interests in approximately 530 senior housing facilities, including over 25 properties owned by its unconsolidated joint ventures. Its senior housing facilities include independent living facilities (ILFs), assisted living facilities (ALFs), memory care facilities (MCFs), care homes, and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which cater to different segments of the elderly population. Services provided by its tenants or operators in these facilities are primarily paid for by the residents directly or through private insurance and are less reliant on government reimbursement programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. ILFs are designed to meet the needs of seniors choosing to live in an environment surrounded socially by their peers with services, such as housekeeping, meals and activities. ALFs are licensed care facilities that provide personal care services, support and housing for those needing help with activities of daily living (ADL), such as bathing, eating, dressing and medication management, yet require limited medical care. MCFs address the challenges of its residents with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. Care homes offer personal care services, such as lodging, meal services, housekeeping and laundry services, medication management and assistance with ADL. CCRCs offer several levels of assistance, including independent living, assisted living and nursing home care. The Company has interests in approximately 80 ILFs, over 300 ALFs, approximately 70 MCFs, over 40 care homes and approximately 30 CCRCs.
