Your Senior Housing Options” is available now on

As we age, it’s never easy to face the prospect of what to do when we need living assistance. But the reality is that two-thirds of today’s seniors will eventually need long-term care, with 20 percent needing it for longer than five years. If you are a retirement-age baby boomer or senior, don’t wait for a health crisis to occur. You owe it to yourself—and your family—to plan for the future today.

Although we’ve all heard horror stories, great facilities where residents are treated like gold are out there. How do you find them? You have to do your homework, ask the right questions, and look beyond the superficial to find what’s right for you.

With experience as both an industry expert and a loving daughter, Diane Twohy Masson is passionate about helping seniors find the retirement community that fits their price range, lifestyle, and needs. This brand new guidebook offers a proactive approach to navigating the complex maze of senior housing options. It will help you understand the costs and consequences of the various possibilities including home care, independent living, assisted living, group homes, memory care, and skilled nursing care facilities.

Diane Twohy Masson has worked in senior housing since 1999. She is an award-winning certified aging services professional and the author of Senior Housing Marketing: How to Increase Your Occupancy and Stay Full for senior living professionals.

Among the thousands of seniors she and her teams have assisted in finding the right senior living community, the most difficult case has been helping her own parent. Masson spent two years exploring senior housing options with her mother before finding the ideal Continuing Care Retirement Community for her. After eight years in this independent living setting, she helped her mother transition into assisted living community. Seven years later, even as a senior housing expert, Masson struggled with the decision to move her mother into a skilled nursing community.

  1. Finally! A book that is so desperately needed to know how…and when…to look for senior housing. I begged my parents to get on a waiting list while they were still active and healthy, and their argument was that they had already purchased cemetery plots. Sure enough….one day they realized they could no longer manage on their own, and we had to find something fast. Because of their not being prepared by being on a list, they had to settle on a substandard place, several states away from family, and their plots…and have been there for nearly 10 years. Now, we are dealing with another family member who insists on staying in their own home…and it is one problem/issue after another. Please heed the advice in this easy-to-read book!

    Thanks Kathryn and David! This resource took 1 1/2 years to develop. Let me know what you think. Diane

  5. As a Realtor, I regularly get requests for help when clients are downsizing. This book is full of helpful information to begin planning for the future. Ideally, we’d all begin the preparation long before decisions are required so we are in the best position to live the senior future we want! It’s a great resource for me and for my clients.
