A Continuum of Quality Care

for Senior Adults

With our social service programs, affordable housing, independent living, assisted living, dementia care, nursing facilities and volunteer opportunities, we honor choices and maintain the quality of life for senior adults by “doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reason, every time.” This is how we live our mission. It is our way of life at Cardinal Ritter Senior Services.

Introducing our new CEO, Chris Baechle

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the new CEO of Cardinal Ritter Senior Services. I have been in the position officially since May 1st.

I come from a clinical background in physical therapy, with a focus on the adult and geriatric patient population. Most recently, I was Chief Executive Officer at St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Hospital/Kindred Healthcare. I have experience as a licensed nursing home administrator, regional director of operations for acute rehabilitation units in a hospital system, and director of clinical services for a rehabilitation organization. My wife, Jill, and I have three teenage daughters, live in Eureka, and are members of Sacred Heart Parish.  

Please know that I’m committed to the hallmarks of our mission which includes Love, Compassion, Hope and Integrity.
