Celebrating Supportive Living Week

Power of the Pen 
Victory Centre of Park Forest residents reached out to congress in a letter-writing campaign in support of Senate Bill 1785, which effectively relinks the supportive living rate to 60 percent of the nursing home rate in Illinois on
July 1, 2019. Supportive Living provides affordable quality housing, care
and lifestyle options.
