Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care
Built from the ground up, Paintbrush welcomed the residents of Fresno, CA in September 2015. The ownership group needed to find their place in a market saturated with over 30 established stand-alone assisted living and memory care communities, plus several CCRCs and large chain communities.
Differentiate Paintbrush from high-end, luxury brands and from middle-of-the-road brands. Paintbrush is a hybrid—the best of both worlds for amenities and value.
“Beautiful Living Begins Here” brand campaign resonated with seniors and their adult children, becoming an effective platform to feature unique architectural designs inspired by Yosemite and an innovative experiential care program. Used blogs, video and other social media to create an ongoing narrative about the benefits of “beautiful living.” Email, print ads and direct mail drove prospects to attend informational presentations. Rich content made website the anchor of our marketing efforts.
Public Relations drew out the deep family roots of the owners’ group in the Fresno area. It created a brand persona of Paintbrush as an integral part of Central Valley Life.
Recognizing that the seniors who moved to Paintbrush were as unique as its architecture, SGD took the advertising to the next level with a campaign featuring “resident stories”. This led to a significant increase in deposits and move-ins.
