Celebrating 125 Years of Commitment to Caring

Masonicare stands on a legacy of caring that has guided its mission for over a century. Committed to honoring life in all of its stages—and aiming to challenge ageism—Masonicare provides a welcoming environment for senior living in all its forms.

You are not a number, nor are you defined by age. And to combat this stigma, Masonicare has developed beautiful Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) and employs best-in-class healthcare that respects your uniqueness and encourages you to be ageless.
