California-based nonprofit ABHOW is passionate about housing, health care and supportive services that enhance independence, well-being and security for older adults. Known for its stability, integrity and ethical behavior, and for showing initiative and imagination in meeting the demands of an ever-changing market, ABHOW helped establish the now widely accepted model of the continuing care retirement community (CCRC).
Since opening its first community in 1949, ABHOW’s goal has been to create retirement lifestyles that offer a variety of living options and health care services to help seniors enjoy life. Today, ABHOW serves more than 6,200 residents in 50 communities throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Oklahoma and Idaho.
ABHOW operates under the motto, “We are extraordinary professionals serving extraordinary people.” Through ABHOW Advantage, Grand Lake Gardens team members are encouraged to collaborate with each other and are provided several tools allowing them to provide excellent customer service. As part of the many aspects of ABHOW Advantage, team members are encouraged to create one-of-a-kind positive experiences for residents and families, build meaningful relationships with team members and residents, and create an exceptional environment that is safe, secure and inviting. This program is modeled after similar initiatives in the hospitality industry and incorporates Seniority Spirit, a program designed by Seniority, Inc., ABHOW’s management, marketing and sales subsidiary.
