MapleCreek, Lutheran Social Services' senior living community in Grand Rapids, has a new option for those who want to live in independent living apartments but who need some extra care. Called "Catered Living Plus," the new program is available in nine Garden Level apartments at The Terraces. With the introduction of Catered Living Plus, a couple with differing needs can move in together and won't have to be separated because one of them requires more care than is usually offered at The Terraces. A new kitchen/dining room and a lounge are being created in the Catered Living Plus section. Resident aides are available around the clock to meet the residents' personal needs, supervised by program coordinator Gwen Melton, LPN.

Here is a wonderful video about a generous landlord, Julio Puzzuoli, who is helping Episcopal Migration Ministries and its affiliate, Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, provide low-cost housing to new refugees: http://www.vimeo.com/24183319.
