In 1991, Cardinal Ritter Senior Services added St. John Neumann Apartments to its family of affordable housing apartment buildings. Located in Jennings, MO, The building offered 100 efficiency and one bedroom apartments for seniors with low income.
This year, the building underwent an extensive renovation process. Vital systems like fire safety were upgraded. A generator for power backup was added to provide emergency lighting and ensure that the emergency pull-cord system in the apartments continues working during a loss in power.
The apartments were modernized with more efficient heating and cooling systems and upgraded appliances. The bathrooms in the units were converted from traditional bathtubs, which can present a fall risk for many seniors, to a lower, cut-out tub design and grab bars were added for additional safety.
In addition to these improvements, some of the building’s efficiency apartments were combined and converted into several handicapped accessible one bedroom units to accommodate those potential residents needing wheelchair accessibility.
We are proud to celebrate 25 years of providing seniors with affordable housing at St. John Neumann Apartments.
