CJE SeniorLife is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of older adults. Many seniors, who do not require extensive personal or medical care, choose to live in the same neighborhoods where they raised their families.
CJE SeniorLife owns and operates 5 independent living buildings, subsidized or affordable, on the north side of Chicago and Skokie. Each one has an on-site manager, maintenance staff, service coordinators (at many locations) and activity staff, with several who are bilingual in English and Russian.
Service coordinators work with residents and family members to arrange for necessary services that can help residents to successfully “age in place.” They mediate, educate and advocate on behalf of the residents.
Most of the buildings also have activity staff who organize festive holiday events for residents and a variety of activities including visits to museums, lectures and occasionally, trips to the Cubs game!
In addition, CJE SeniorLife’s continuum of care provides community-based services such as transportation, home delivered meals and consumer assistance to many building residents.
