The Senior Housing Locator's database includes listings for all licensed assisted living facilities, residential care homes and nursing homes, as well as select independent living facilities and continuing care retirement communities. In addition to geographic and facility name search categories, advanced search options allow users to screen by care needs, payment options and lifestyle amenities.
"The NASMM Senior Housing Locator provides the most comprehensive and
objective information available," said Eve M. Stern RN, MS, president of
SNAPforSeniors. "With more than 240 different facility license types
nationwide, the senior housing landscape can be daunting to navigate, even
for professionals. This navigational tool takes all of the diverse,
disconnected information out there and makes it available through a single,
easy-to-use resource. It's designed to help people make informed decisions,
which ultimately lead to greater satisfaction and ease in the transition to
a senior living community."

The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) is a not-for-
profit, professional association of organizations dedicated to assisting
older adults and families with the physical and emotional demands of
downsizing, relocating, or modifying their homes. The senior move industry
is relatively new, but the challenge of transitioning an older adult is
not. As the only professional association in the country devoted to helping
the rapidly increasing 55+ population with middle and later life transition
issues, NASMM members are committed to maximizing the dignity and autonomy
of all older adu
