Resident Engagement

An invitation into someone’s home is a privilege. At ABHOW, we take great care with the privilege we’ve been given — creating homes and communities that enable seniors to live life to the fullest, on their terms.

Former teachers, retired engineers, chefs, musicians and social workers – our residents know a thing or two about the good life because they helped shape it for the rest of us. Staying in the driver’s seat is their priority. Making sure they enjoy the ride is ours.

Here, they’ll continue to lead the way. Our communities are a reflection of our residents, who shape campus life by participating in governance, hosting civic and social programs, and leading campus improvement initiatives, among other lifestyle-enhancing activities.

Meet some of ABHOW’s engaging residents who are living life on their own terms:
