CHICAGO, June 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Methodist Senior Home Care, a division of Chicagoland Methodist Senior Services (CMSS), and Services for Adults Staying in Their Homes (SASI) announced today that they have brought their two organizations together as one.
The alignment of the two organizations represents their joint desire to continue to provide excellent, personalized and affordable home care for older adults.
Founded in 1975 in Evanston, SASI has been providing high-quality care for seniors and other adults, who, due to aging, illness or injury, need assistance to be safe and comfortable at home. CMSS, the most extensive network of senior services on Chicago's north side, offers services ranging from supportive living to skilled nursing, and shares SASI's commitment to helping older adults age with comfort, dignity and respect. CMSS' Methodist Senior Home Care will no longer exist and will become SASI.
"The alignment with CMSS' Methodist Senior Home Care will allow us to expand our reach and help even more Chicago-area older adults to stay in their homes," said Jeanie Ramsey, Executive Director of SASI. "CMSS and SASI share a similar mission to help older adults thrive as they age, and I am confident that this relationship will help us expand that mission to impact even more people."
The newly joined organization will continue to serve existing home care clients while positioning itself to expand its reach.
"This alignment will not only allow us to continue to offer high quality home care to older adults who want to stay in their homes, but will also help us keep fees low for both the older adults who need our services and their families," said Bill Lowe, President of CMSS. "SASI has an impeccable reputation in the home care industry, and there is no better organization with whom we could partner."
