About American Seniors Housing Association 

Here to help.
It’s hard to work through choices related to growing older, isn’t it? A shortage of facts, insights, action plans and clear-headedness makes it tough to figure out what changes are needed … when it’s the right time … and how to make changes actually happen. But when you find a rich resource of information and guidance? Well, that can make all the difference. And that’s why we’re here.

Use our knowledge.
We know senior living. For decades, we’ve helped seniors and their families navigate housing and lifestyle choices. We’ve listened. We’ve learned. And now we can help you, too. Want to make the best possible decisions for you and your family? You’re in the right place. Where You Live Matters is the resource to help you do that.

Our ASHA connection.
We’re backed by more than 400 members of ASHA, the American Seniors Housing Association. Organized in 2001, with many of our constituent senior living communities originating decades earlier, we’re proud to claim a longtime friendship with seniors and their families. All those communities represent thousands and thousands of family conversations about lifestyle choices, and that’s the knowledge base from which we draw in creating resources to help you in your search.

Unbiased, fact-based, time-tested information.
We aim to put the best of what we know into your hands. The decision we want you to make is the decision that’s right for you and your family. Your choices are many … we’re here to help you move from overwhelmed to empowered.

Nolan Wilcox | Above and Beyond

Lincoln Court has a secret weapon in their kitchen, pastry chef Nolan Wilcox! Any time there is a special reason to celebrate, Nolan goes to work to create a custom dessert specifically for the occasion. Recently,  a resident couple at Lincoln Court, the Zimmermans, were planning a big party for their 64th Wedding Anniversary. Of course, Nolan’s cake creations were part of their plans. When the husband came down with pneumonia and had to go to the hospital, that didn’t stop the team at Lincoln Court from making sure the Zimmermans got their custom cake from Nolan and a chance to celebrate. They packaged up a smaller version of the big cake along with some balloons and delivered it all to the hospital.

So, if you’re looking for some amazing desserts that look as good as they taste, look no further than the kitchen at Lincoln Court and pastry chef Nolan Wilcox. What a great way to add spice to life. Thanks for making everyone’s special occasions a little more special, and for going Above and Beyond!
