A Caring and Sharing Legacy
For 30+ years, Senior Home Sharing has been offering seniors with limited incomes a residential housing option resembling homes they have lived in for decades. Our affordable residences are shared by seniors who furnish their own bedrooms and share the common areas of the home. Our caring staff members at each location live there too, preparing three delicious meals every day, cleaning the shared areas of the home, and keeping the ambience and social engagement at optimum levels for all residents. With freedom to come and go but with the knowledge that our residence manager provides a watchful eye both day and night, residents enjoy the camaraderie of others while loved ones experience peace of mind. Medication reminders (offered upon request) provide an additional level of care and concern often not available in large-scale independent living communities.
Volunteers bring laughter and energy into each home, either engaging with an individual resident or participating in a group initiative or event. Ages of residents vary from 62 (in some cases even younger) to 99! Several residents have cars, while many others take advantage of transportation options available to seniors within their local community or with volunteers.

About the same time Jackie started showing signs of aging, her husband passed away. Lonely, she moved in with one of her children.
Within a short time, Jackie and her children agreed she needed more socializing opportunities than living with one of her daughters could provide. However, they were not convinced that living in a senior apartment complex would provide the environment that Jackie needed or wanted. She never desired to move into a senior apartment building or other large senior housing facility.
So they turned to an affordable Senior Home Sharing option – Jackie has lived at Chase Place in Lombard since March 2011. It has been the perfect fit — her children, who live in nearby suburbs, frequently visit and often stay for meals, gardening and interaction with other residents at Chase Place.
Perhaps most importantly, Jackie is able to retain as much independence as possible because of the routine and stability offered by Senior Home Sharing, including dining on three meals every day, medication reminders, frequent opportunities to socialize, and the security offered by full-time housing staff.
So while Jackie thrives in an independent setting, Senior Home Sharing’s affordable, small scale, neighborhood home provides her family the peace of mind knowing she is eating well, enjoying the company of elderly friends her age, and having the chance to laugh often in an environment much like the homes she lived in all her life!
