Meet Charlie and Hazel!

  • A New Public Awareness Campaign on Facebook!

As we launch our 2016 Convention & Tradeshow, we wanted to introduce you to two very important "individuals" who are going to take us on an exciting journey together!  They are the heroes of their own story, and we are sure you will want to tune-in to their adventures.

Public awareness of the realities experienced by seniors searching for, living in, and transitioning through seniors housing is significantly lacking.  Navigating the systems can be confusing, frustrating and even scary because of terminology, negative media images and social constructs around aging and seniors communities.

Charlie and Hazel are here to share their experiences with us.  Join our Facebook Page where you can learn more about these characters and participate in their weekly antics and stories.  Each week, ASCHA will be sharing a bit of their story, and as Charlie and Hazel encounter various options and decisions to make, you can weigh-in on how they should proceed by liking, sharing or commenting on each post.

Together, we can all learn a bit more about seniors housing experiences and develop well-informed opinions of the various options available, so we can plan our own journeys or those of our loved ones.

Seniors are the heroes of their own life stories, and the later chapters of their book must be something they have a hand in writing!

Celebrate the power of residents, and form new alliances with those championing ASCHA’s Noble Cause!
