Chicago Assisted Building

Senior citizens are set to benefit from the expected increase in the number of several assisted-living buildings in the Chicago area. This is in line with Illinois’ expansion program that will provide seniors an affordable alternative to high-cost nursing homes. Among those who would benefit from this are seniors who do not really need s4 hour supervision but only some occasional support.

There are 113 existing facilities all over the state under the Supportive Living Program, 36-more supportive living buildings in the Chicago Metropolitan area and a lot more being planned.

One of those who are set to move into one of these new facilities is 68-year old Phyllis Starks who is headed for the Victory Center of South Chicago. Starks’ home was foreclosed several years ago so she was forced to rent an apartment which soon proved difficult as she had to manage not only the upkeep of her place but her medications as well. She is presently staying with her daughter but is excited about her own place again.

At the Victory Center Starks will have her own place with three meals a day, regular medication reminder from the staff not to mention housekeeping help too. Starks’ pension will cover the cost of her stay in Victory.
