  • Amazing life at Abiitan

    I have lived at Abiitan for about 1 year and have found that the choice to move here is one of the best decisions of my life. The folks here are from such a varied background and are interested in new experiences, continued learning and being part of a community. The variety of programming and events is awesome and there is something for everyone. As a resident, one has the option to participate every day or occasionally in activities. The staff is exceptional and they assist us in the art of living well, whatever that means to each person. Abiitan is my home, and I love it!

  • New Chapter, New Adventure for my mom

    Moving is a big change at any stage in life. My mom's move from the suburbs to the city has been a big one but also an exciting one. It's inspiring for me as I see her embracing a new experience altogether. I am happy to see how Abiitan has provided her access to things she has had an interest in throughout her life (cultural, social and community involvement) but has had limited access to the last several years. With our family living and working downtown it is especially meaningful to share the urban experience together in a multi-generational way! I love that her grandchildren are super excited and think it's really cool that she moved to the city!
