Retirement Community

Altenheim Retirement Community has been a presence in Wheeling since 1891.  We now offer stylish housing for independent men, women and couples who are 65 years of age and older.  Eight free-standing cottages are rented on a monthly basis and are equipped with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer. Amenities include lawn care, snow removal, general maintenance, meals, activities, and more!  Rent does not include utilities.  There is no admission fee.  Contact our Executive Director for more information or to apply!

Senior/Caregiver Resources & Referral Services

CAN WE HELP YOU?  Do you need to know what services you can consider to help a loved one remain independent?  Perhaps you need some help.  Do you need information on dementia?  Contact us!  We'll discuss your situation and your needs - free and confidential!

We are busy working on the program schedule for 2016!  Check out our calendar and add our events to your list!

LET US BE YOUR GATEWAY TO SENIOR CARE!  Finding assistance for our aging family members or for ourselves can be challenging.  There are many services to meet needs and to provide information but sometimes the choices add to the confusion.  Let us help!

Altenheim Resource & Referral Services has been a division of Altenheim since 1995, providing assistance to seniors and caregivers without regard to income or location. We receive no federal, state or local funding, and offer unbiased information on services and aging issues for those needing help.  Free services include assessment, resource information, and community programs. Workshops with continuing education credit are offered for social workers and nurses. We will also come to you do do presentations on aging, caregiving or on our Altenheim Retirement Community at no charge, and your group's size doesn't matter!  Seniors, family caregivers, and professional caregivers are encouraged to contact us for information on service options, available resources and caregiving concerns. We can help you with the aging and caregiving journey.


Altenheim Resource & Referral Service's Events and Programs sections lists upcoming programs with Resource Services programs listed in CAPS.
