ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 13, 2018 — Jewish Senior Life has been awarded a Gold Aster Award for its brand awareness campaign and two Silver awards for additional advertising tactics. The Aster Awards are one of the largest and most respected national healthcare advertising competitions, presented annually by Marketing Healthcare Today Magazine and Creative Images, Inc. Jewish Senior Life scored in the top 5 percent in the nation for its 2018 comprehensive advertising campaign and was the only Rochester senior living organization recognized.
“We’ve been at the forefront of care since we were founded over 100 years ago, and this recent brand campaign shows people that there’s more to Jewish Senior Life than they may have thought,” said Jane Knickerbocker, Vice President of Marketing for Jewish Senior Life. “Prior to the launch, people may have known us for being a quality long-term care provider, but the goal was to open their eyes to all of the care opportunities we provide, from short-term and outpatient rehabilitation, to independent and assisted living, memory care and more.”
Jewish Senior Life was honored for the following:
Take a Closer Look at Jewish Senior Life—Comprehensive advertising campaign featuring TV, radio, print and digital ads
