About Us



Deep in our hearts, we all cherish the happiness of living in a society, where there is love, respect and compassion. Feel the warmth and grace…. The rhythm of life...

At Asha Senior Living, independent living marks a shift towards a new way of thinking about life as a senior by offering an affordable and safe alternative that preserves a senior’s independence while allowing the next chapter of life to be the most generative yet.

We provide a balance of the many competing needs of senior citizens by offering a friendly community with help as needed without compromising privacy, putting an end to frustrations of home maintenance.
