We’ve built this website like we build our communities: with an unwavering devotion to those we serve, an abiding faith in our founding principles, and a passion to shape the future of our profession.
We opened our first community in 1949 in Los Altos, Calif. It was a pioneering move – the development of a campus that offers multiple levels of living and health care. Through our industry leadership in the 1950s and 1960s, we helped establish the “continuing care retirement community” as an attractive lifestyle option for American seniors.
We’ve kept on pioneering. Today in ABHOW’s 42 communities, located in four Western states, we’re changing the way people think about aging. Our unique approach is helping older adults live life to the fullest.
Our continuing care retirement communities are colorful, vibrant places that grow and change along with the needs and interests of our residents. Restaurant dining, lifestyle programs and flexible contracts are just some of ABHOW’s popular features.
And our affordable housing communities are among the finest in the nation. In 2010 ABHOW received the affordable housing industry’s most prestigious national designation.
Our record of excellence speaks for itself, but our story continues to be told. For every life we touch, we endeavor to do the greatest good. That's our passion.
