Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

(b) On May 29, 2012, Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. (“ALC” or the “Company”) announced that Laurie A. Bebo is no longer the President, Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) or an employee of ALC, effective immediately.

(c) On May 29, 2012, ALC also announced that Charles H. Roadman, II, M.D., age 68, will serve as interim President and Chief Executive Officer during the Company’s search for a permanent chief executive officer. Also on May 29, 2012, Dr. Roadman resigned as a member of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) as a result of his new role. In recognition of Dr. Roadman’s assumption of the Interim President and Chief Executive Officer roles and expanded responsibilities, in addition to his director compensation, he will receive: (i) a cash payment of $2,000 per work day; (ii) a car allowance to be determined; and (iii) use of a furnished apartment in Milwaukee.

Dr. Roadman has served as a director of the Company since 2006. Dr. Roadman is a retired President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Health Care Association (1999 to 2004) and former Surgeon General of the U.S. Air Force (1996 to 1999). Prior to November 10, 2006, he was a director of Extendicare Inc. (now Extendicare Real Estate Investment Trust). Dr. Roadman serves as a director and advisor on a number of private corporate boards.

Dr. Roadman’s medical background, his experience as chief executive officer of a major health care association, and his continuing involvement in public and private health care issues led the Board to conclude that he should serve as interim President and CEO of ALC.
