On or before the date of execution of this Agreement, the Participant shall deliver to the Corporation one or more stock powers endorsed in blank relating to the Restricted Shares. 2. Restrictions. (a) The Participant shall have all rights and privileges of a stockholder of the Corporation with respect to the Restricted Shares, including voting rights and the right to receive dividends paid with respect to the Restricted Shares, except that the following restrictions shall apply until such time or times as these restrictions lapse under Section 3 or any other provision of this Agreement: (i) the Participant shall not be entitled to delivery of the certificate or certificates for any of the Restricted Shares until the restrictions imposed by this Agreement have lapsed with respect to those Restricted Shares; (ii) the Restricted Shares may not be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged or otherwise encumbered or disposed of by the Participant before these restrictions have lapsed, except with the consent of the Corporation; and (iii) the Restricted Shares shall be subject to forfeiture upon termination of the Participant's employment with the Corporation to the extent set forth in Section 6 below. If any portion of the Restricted Shares become vested under Section 3 below (or Sections 6, 7 or 8), such newly vested shares shall no longer be subject to the preceding restrictions and shall no longer be considered Restricted Shares. (b) Any attempt to dispose of Restricted Shares in a manner contrary to the restrictions set forth in this Agreement shall be ineffective. 3. Vesting; When Restrictions Lapse. The Restricted Shares shall vest in five annual installments, on _________, 20__ and the next four anniversaries of such date, or at such earlier time as the restrictions may lapse pursuant to Sections 6, 7 or 8 of this Agreement.

4. Issuance of Stock Certificates for Shares. The stock certificate or certificates representing the Restricted Shares shall be issued promptly following the execution of this Agreement, and shall be delivered to the Corporate Secretary or such other custodian as may be designated by the Corporation, to be held until the restrictions lapse under Sections 3, 6, 7 or 8. Such stock certificate or certificates shall bear the following legend: 2 "The transferability of the shares of stock represented by this Certificate are subject to the terms and conditions (including forfeiture) of a Restricted Stock Agreement entered into between the registered owner and Health Care REIT, Inc. A copy of such Restricted Stock Agreement is on file in the offices of the Corporate Secretary, Health Care REIT, Inc., One SeaGate, Suite 1500, Toledo, Ohio 43604." Once the restrictions imposed by this Agreement have lapsed with respect to any portion of the Restricted Shares, a stock certificate or certificates for such portion of the Restricted Shares shall be returned and exchanged for a new unlegended stock certificate representing the newly vested shares. The new certificates shall be delivered to the Participant (or to the person to whom the rights of the Participant shall have passed by will or the laws of descent and distribution) promptly after the date on which the restrictions imposed on such shares by this Agreement have lapsed, but not before the Participant has made arrangements satisfactory to the Corporation for tax withholding (as required by Section 5), and provided that any certificate representing the portion of the newly vested shares (if any) that the Participant applies to satisfy his or her tax withholding obligations pursuant to Section 5(b) below shall be delivered to the Corporation rather than the Participant. 5. Tax Withholding. Whenever the restrictions applicable to all or a portion of the Restricted Shares lapse under the terms of this Agreement, the Corporation shall notify the Participant of the amount of tax that must be withheld by the Corporation under all applicable federal, state and local tax laws.

If the Participant's employment is terminated involuntarily without Cause, including an involuntary termination without Cause as a result of the Corporation's election not to extend the term of the Participant's Employment Agreement, or in the event of a Change in 3 Corporate Control, vesting shall be accelerated, the restrictions imposed by this Agreement on the remaining Restricted Shares shall lapse immediately, and no Restricted Shares shall be forfeited. For purposes of this Section 6, a "Change in Corporate Control" shall include any of the following events: (a) The acquisition in one or more transactions of more than twenty percent of the Corporation's outstanding Common Stock (or the equivalent in voting power of any class or classes of securities of the Corporation entitled to vote in elections of directors) by any corporation, or other person or group (within the meaning of Section 14(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended); (b) Any transfer or sale of substantially all of the assets of the Corporation, or any merger or consolidation of the Corporation into or with another corporation in which the Corporation is not the surviving entity; (c) Any election of persons to the Board of Directors which causes a majority of the Board of Directors to consist of persons other than "Continuing Directors."

Effect of Retirement. If the termination of the Participant's employment occurs as a result of the Participant's retirement after age 55 and the sum of the Participant's age and years of service to 4 the Corporation is equal to 65 or more, vesting shall be accelerated and all of the restrictions imposed on the Restricted Shares by this Agreement shall lapse immediately. 10.
