As autumn makes its return, one unwelcome visitor that often arrives with it is the influenza virus. While many of us think of the flu as a few unpleasant days of illness, the truth is it can be much more serious for seniors. Complications such as pneumonia are common in seniors.

Because many seniors have lived in the same home for decades, it’s a place that represents familiarity and comfort.
As we continue to welcome brighter days, we’re excited to host virtual and in-person tours and events in our communities across the U.S. and Canada throughout September.
