Where You Live Matters

Where You Live Matters was created as a senior living resource for older adults and their families. By offering unbiased, expert resources, we can help clear up misconceptions about senior living and offer guidance throughout the decision-making process. Because where you live — your physical surroundings, your social connections, your opportunities for learning and wellness — impacts the quality of life. Where you live really does matter. 

Where You Live Matters was created as a consumer outreach initiative by the American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA), the premier source for research, conferences, and advocacy for those in the senior living industry.
