CJE SeniorLife is dedicated to facilitating the independence of older adults and to enhance their quality of life. Many seniors, who do not require personal or medical care, choose to live in the same neighborhoods where they raised their families.
CJE SeniorLife owns and operates 7 housing sites on the North side of Chicago and Skokie. The agency provides a total of 461 units of affordable housing. On-site staff includes:
- at many locations service coordinators
- activity staff (bi-lingual English-Russian)
Service coordinators work with residents and family members to arrange for necessary services, allowing residents to "age in place." They mediate, educate and advocate on behalf of the residents.
Most of the buildings have activity staff which arrange for festive holiday events and variety of activities ranging from visiting museums, attending lectures as well trips to the Cubs game! CJE is fortunate to have staff at most sites that are bi-lingual in English and in Russian.
In addition, CJE SeniorLife provides community-based services like group activities, transportation, home delivered meals and consumer assistance to many building residents.
