The Chesterton community welcomed StoryPoint Senior Living with excitement at their grand opening on June 11. Residents, StoryPoint staff, and community members celebrated with a ribbon cutting, food, drinks, and live music from Emmanouel Fokianos.
When you elevate a standard work procedure to a celebration, you know you’re working in the right place. Jennifer Kasch has the same realization each time a new resident moves into Belevedere Senior Housing. Rather than treating each new move-in as a routine piece of business, Kasch and her team host an entire ribbon-cutting ceremony, gifting residents a healthy dose of fanfare and a basket of treats, toiletries, and sparkling grape juice.
Many people in the Region have heard of the VNA of Northwest Indiana, but not all are familiar with the many ways it serves individuals and families needing care. A major part of the VNA is its hospice care, but it also offers palliative care, LifeLine services, grief support, and is the Meals on Wheels provider in Porter County. VNA staff are highly-trained and deeply-devoted people whose focus is on the patient, and the patient’s loved ones.
StoryPoint Senior Living is excited to announce its newest community, StoryPoint Chesterton, has officially opened its doors.

New Sensory Room at Journey Senior Living of Merrillville Helps Jump Start the Senses for Seniors with Dementia
Memory disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can impact the brain and lead to personality, behavior, and bodily changes. Dementia closely effects how the five senses work, making it easy for impacted seniors to feel lost or disconnected from their environment.
On Thursday March 21st Journey Senior Living in Merrillville hosted a Business After Hours. The invited attendees were from the Schererville Chamber of Commerce, Crossroads Chamber and the Continuity Of Care Association or COCA.
StoryPoint Senior Living is excited to share its newest resident-focused endeavor: The publication of a book, “Old Wise Tales: Life Lessons for Future Generations.” The book will share the stories, poems and more from residents across all communities from StoryPoint and its sister company, Independence Village, including StoryPoint Fort Wayne.
As we age, the smallest of falls or the simplest of colds can turn into major health issues, quickly. And, it usually takes longer to recover. Facilities like Addison Pointe Health and Rehabilitation Center like to celebrate when their patients graduate from sickness to health.
The road to full recovery after a major surgery such as a knee or hip replacement can be quite the journey. Many patients in the region qualify to recuperate at rehab facilities such as Munster Med-Inn, which offers comprehensive programming designed to get patients back to their normal lives as soon as possible. Others prefer the option of outpatient rehabilitation, where they can benefit from the clinical expertise of the Munster Med-Inn staff on an appointment basis, while getting a good night’s sleep in their own bed.
