LIBERTYVILLE, IL – Metropolitan Detroit, Michigan continuing care retirement community becomes the 58th Member of Caring Communities, the nation’s largest insurance and risk management provider exclusively serving non-profit senior housing and care organizations.

“We made the connection with Jewish Senior Life based on their leadership recognizing the value our risk management resources will bring to their mission,” shared Jim Caldwell, Chief Executive Officer at Caring Communities. “Proactive aging services risk management is a principle that we share with all of our Members, and we are honored that Jewish Senior Life has chosen to partner with us.
