What is CARES

"A new couple moved in early this month, and they have been to every CARES event thus far. They let us know that, in this month alone, they have met more of their neighbors than they ever have at their other apartment communities."

Community Manager, Lincoln Property Company


Based on a survey conducted by Witten Advisors,

  • 83% of apartment residents and 92% of staff said the "sense of community" was stronger at a CARES community.
  • 93% of the apartment staff said that CARES increased the quality of life for their residents.
  • Residents who have participated in CARES events increased their average number of friendships 175% - from 1.9 to 5.4.

But don't just take our word for it. Here is what others are saying about the CARES program:

 "Before our community had a CARES Team, I never really desired to participate in our community activities. The CARES program has brought a sense of freshness and a strong desire to bring us together that I have never seen before.

-Resident at a Lyon Community

"There is a lot of talk in the industry about how we need to care for our residents, but it just simply doesn’t happen due to time constraints. That’s a real important aspect of Apartment Life - their CARES Teams live onsite and truly care about the residents." 

-Marshall Edwards, Former CIO, Walden Residential

Apartment Life has been a great partner for JPI in our resident service initiatives. Not only does the CARES program make business sense, it also helps us achieve our goal of making a real difference in the lives of our associates and residents."
