“When I started our first community, I asked myself, ‘What can I do to change the way society views the aging process?’ Each time I ask that question, it raises the importance of every facet of what we do.

We wanted to create a community unlike any other—a place where people could enjoy unmatched opportunities for fun; a maintenance-free community that would provide them with the luxury of being involved, inspired, and engaged. We also wanted to provide unmatched health care that would allow them to live life to the fullest. All at an unmatched value.”

John Erickson

In 1983 John Erickson rejected the traditional concept of retirement living and struck out on his own to create an exciting lifestyle for people age 62 or better. To that end, he turned an abandoned college campus in Maryland into a vibrant, bustling community named Charlestown. It quickly became the most popular campus-style community option in America.

Not only does the concept of Erickson Living communities attract people who want to live there, it also attracts topnotch employees, all drawn by the exciting possibilities of positive aging. Erickson Living now offers a nationwide network of campuses serving more than 20,000 people.
