A Continuum of Quality Care for Senior Adults

Cardinal Ritter Senior Services (CRSS) provides programs, communities and services designed to meet the needs of senior adults across a continuum of care. Our objective at CRSS is to provide independence, options and the highest quality of service to senior adults.

With our social service programs, affordable housing, independent living, assisted living, memory care, nursing communities 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.

We hope that this website has helpful information for you. If you need additional information, please call the main office at 314-961-8000.


Cardinal Ritter Institute was founded in 1960 to address the needs of a growing senior adult population, especially the poor and frail. In 2004, it became Cardinal Ritter Senior Services (CRSS) to better reflect its role in the community. CRSS is the largest agency of the Catholic Charities Federation and has been recognized locally and nationally for its work on behalf of senior adults.
