Our experienced team includes staff members from a variety of disciplines, all with a common goal—to serve the program’s participants.

Primary care services are provided by the physicians at our health center, under the direct supervision of our Medical Director. Lutheran Senior LIFE employs an interdisciplinary team of board certified physicians, certified nurses, and rehabilitation and recreation therapists with experience in geriatrics. They provide one-on-one, individualized care to manage the medical, social, and personal needs of our senior participants. 

Our professional support staff is always available to answer questions and provide resources to our participants. Many of them are bilingual and have many years of experience working with seniors. 

Together, we monitor changes and provide the necessary services to keep our senior participants active and as independent as possible.
