Argentum is the leading national association exclusively dedicated to supporting companies operating professionally managed, resident-centered senior living communities and the older adults and families they serve. Since 1990, Argentum has advocated for choice, independence, dignity, and quality of life for all older adults.
Argentum member companies operate senior living communities offering assisted living, independent living, continuing care, and memory care services. Along with its state partners, Argentum’s membership represents approximately 75 percent of the professionally managed communities in the senior living industry—an industry with a national economic impact of nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars and responsible for providing over 1.6 million jobs. These numbers will continue to grow as the U.S. population ages.
A Mission to Promote Senior Living
Argentum’s mission is to promote choice, dignity, independence, and quality of life for seniors. To support this mission, Argentum influences public policy, promotes business excellence, and ensures an informed public.
A Vision for the Future of Senior Living
Americans are living longer. About 70% of Americans will need some kind of long-term care after they turn 65. When the last of the baby boomers reach age 65 in 2029, they will represent more than 20% of the total U.S. population. Senior living services and products will see unprecedented demand in the coming decades.
