We are here to help.”
Dennise grew up in Homer Glen and is a Lockport Township High School Graduate.

We are here for you and we will help you.
Our care philosophy is based on our belief that no matter your age, you deserve to be treated as an individual. We know that when you feel heard and respected, you are more likely to engage in care. We make sure you are the center of every decision, every day. We value you and empower you to help make each day happier and healthier. We also believe being involved in our community can help our families always find the resources they need for all their care, safety and wellness needs.
