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.

A message from Chris Baechle, CEO

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the CEO of Cardinal Ritter Senior Services.

I come from a clinical background in physical therapy, with a focus on the adult and geriatric patient population. 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.

Each year, Our Lady of Life Apartments residents know how to laissez les bon temps rouler on Fat Tuesday. Today’s celebration began with a delicious breakfast of pancakes, sausage, and fruit followed by the annual Pancake Race. Later in the afternoon, residents will enjoy a Mardi Gras themed party with cocktails, music, and a scrumptious New Orleans style dinner! Wherever you are, we hope you are celebrating Mardi Gras in style! #stl #senior #senioradults #love #compassion #hope #integrity @ Our Lady of Life Apartments ... See MoreSee Less
