As the President of Senior Housing Management, I am often asked the question, “what makes your communities different from other retirement communities?” No matter how many times I hear this, my answer is always the same. What sets us apart are the people who live and work in our communities. I’ve always believed that we’re just good Midwest people, taking care of good Midwest people. It’s as simple as that; we treat each of our residents and our staff members like family.

When I started this business over 13 years ago, this idea was at the heart of our plans and continues to be the heartbeat in our communities today. We knew that if we did this right, all the other puzzle pieces would fall into place. While I would love to say that the rest is history, Senior Housing Companies would not be where it is today without the people making our initial vision a reality day in and day out. For that, I am not only very grateful but also very proud.

Helping seniors live their retirement years to the fullest brings us so much joy. It makes the great days fulfilling and the emotional days worth it. And the best part about it, is we’re always surrounded by family. We encourage each and every one of our residents across the states of Iowa and Illinois to “Dare to Dream,” a philosophy that is signature to Senior Housing. We truly are in the business of making our resident’s dreams come true.

In this monthly blog, I hope to share valuable information, advice for those going through the process of selecting a retirement living community and updates on how Senior Housing Companies is setting the bar high when it comes to providing the very best in Independent, Assisted Living, Closer Care and Memory Care.
