••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Industry: Health Care Providers » Long-Term Care Facilities
Compare:SRZ, BKD, CSU, EXETF, NHC » details
Assisted Living Concepts, Inc., was formed as a Nevada corporation in 1994 and operated as an independent company until January 31, 2005 when it was acquired by Extendicare Health Services, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Extendicare Inc. On November 10, 2006, ALC became an independent, publicly traded Company when it separated from Extendicare. The Company operates senior living residences that provide seniors with a supportive, home-like setting with care and services, including 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living, medication management, life enrichment, health and wellness, and other services either directly from ALC employees or indirectly through wholly-owned health care service subsidiaries. Its residences are in the middle of a broad spectrum of senior living options that ranges from apartments to skilled nursing facilities. It designs the services provided to these residents to respond to their individual needs and to improve their quality of life. This individualized assistance is available 24 hours a day and includes routine health-related services, which are made available and are provided according to the resident's individual needs and state regulatory requirements. Available services include: general services, such as meals, activities, laundry and housekeeping; support services, such as assistance with medication, monitoring health status, coordination of transportation, and coordination with physician offices; personal care, such as dressing, grooming and bathing; and a safe and secure environment with 24-hour access to assistance. As of December 31, 2012, it has 211 residences containing 9,348 units located in 20 states of which at December 31, 2012, 173 were owned and 38 were leased. Its residences are purpose-built to meet the special needs of seniors and typically are located in targeted, middle-market suburban bedroom communities that were selected on the basis of a number of factors, including the size of the Company's targeted demographic resident pool in the community. Residences include features designed to appeal to seniors and their decision makers. The majority of its residences are 40 to 60 unit, single story, square shaped buildings with an enclosed courtyard, a mix of studio and one-bedroom apartments, and wide hallways to accommodate its residents who use walkers and wheelchairs. The relatively small number of units and the design of its buildings enhance its ability to provide effective security and care, while also appealing to seniors who generally prefer easy access to their living quarters, pleasing aesthetics, and simplicity of design. The Company competes directly with companies that provide living services to seniors as well as other companies that provide similar long-term care alternatives. In addition, it faces competition from other providers in the senior living industry including companies that provide adult day care in the home, congregate care residences where resi
