With over 550 organizational members in Illinois, Life Services Network is one of the largest and most respected associations of its type in the country. Founded in the early part of the 20th century by an ecumenical group of long-term care providers, LSN has represented the complete continuum of services for older adults for over 75 years.
LSN’s uniqueness is its dedication to the understanding that private initiative is the building block of quality. One’s sense of value and customer service determines quality more than governmental mandates and prescriptions. This philosophy guides our strategic planning and as a result, LSN is nationally known for its cutting-edge programs, leadership and expertise in eldercare. Committed to the advancement of quality and innovation in older adult services, LSN is also the state affiliate of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) and the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA).
LSN’s strength lies in the diversity of its membership. LSN’s partnership consists of:
• Assisted Living Communities • Continuing Care Retirement Communities • Home and Community-based Services • Home Healthcare Services • Hospice Care • Independent Living Senior Housing • Nursing Facilities • Supportive Living Communities
The diversity and involvement of our partners in our unique governance structure empower LSN to conduct a wide range of activities to keep our partners on the forefront of aging services. LSN strives to help our partners face the day-to-day challenges of providing person-centered, knowledge-based, high quality care and services for the special populations that they serve, while continuing to look ahead to see future opportunities for older-adult service providers.
Through effective grassroots advocacy, indispensable professional enrichment, increased consumer awareness, cutting-edge information and innovative partnership benefits and programs, LSN will continue to be a “one-stop-shop” and the premier association for older adult service providers in Illinois.
