What's Been Said...
“Once we sold our house I felt like I was 18 again. No more responsibilities of having an old house deteriorating, no property and more time.”

Project Development
As a leader in providing a variety of retirement living options, we are committed to responding to the changing and growing needs of today's seniors. We understand that the first of the baby boomers has already turned 60. We know that by 2030 when these first baby boomers reach the age of 84, there will be 69 million Americans over the age of 65. We can visualize what the future is bringing and we are growing to meet the needs of more active adults today and into the future.

We will continue to strive to be the optimal means which frees all those we serve to experience the fullness of their lives. We'll do this by continuing to develop new communities and other senior-based services to meet the needs of seniors for many years to come. It's about freedom and creating opportunities for our residents to experience independence, choices, dignity, individuality, nurturing of the spirit and involvement of others.

St. Joseph Senior Housing

St. Joseph Senior Housing (SJSH) is dedicated to developing and providing affordable housing for independent seniors aged 62 and up (residents with limited income). SJSH develops safe, maintenance-free communities that provide housing options without a health care component. It has been created for seniors who have restricted housing options due to personal financial limitations.

The company was founded in 2003 as part of the overall vision of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago Service Corporation to provide housing for those in need. The first affordable housing community, St. James Senior Estates, opened in October 2006, to learn more information about Franciscan Senior Estates, call (708) 367-0001 or click on the link above.

The company's newest affordable senior housing community, Franciscan Senior Estates, opened in January 2009. Located in Louisville, Ky., the three-story Franciscan Senior Estates features 54 one- and two-bedroom apartments, 12 that have special features for seniors who are deaf or hard of hearing. For more information about Franciscan Senior Estates, call (502) 966-6199.

SJSH is reviewing affordable housing communities in Joliet, Ill., Cleveland, Ohio, Notre Dame, Ind., Lake County, Ind., Chicago, Ill., and a second community in Crete, Ill.
