The campaign focuses on the quality of the design, food and local amenities of its residences, as well as their customized experiences and care services.

Media work is being conducted by No Fixed Address. The rebranding also includes a new website, developed by Valtech, which offers personal stories from residents. The company, formerly known as Amica Mature Lifestyles, operates 29 locations in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta.
