Supporting You and Your Community

For many, the senior living experience occurs at the community level as a resident, an employee, a family member, or a visitor.  The community is where we see the “heart of senior living” at its core: where employees know a resident’s regular breakfast order and grandchildren’s names.

Here, you’ll see news, resources and articles, best practices and tips, and professional developing and training opportunities for senior living professionals and community leaders.
