Rick Banas, Vice President of Development and Positioning for Gardant, was featured in a Seniors Housing Business article on the importance of affordable assisted living options for seniors.
In the article, Banas says the senior housing industry will need to be more vocal about the benefits of affordable assisted living.
“The industry will need to show Medicare, managed care and ACOs how it’s a better, more cost-effective option for someone to live in assisted living rather than live in a nursing home or on their own. We do a lot of that here in Illinois to remind key legislators of the benefit,” Banas said in the article.

Just before Valentine's Day, this couple from our Dwight community told their local newspaper that the reason behind their 70-plus year marriage is simple: it's love.
Our very own Betty and Ray Bertrand shared their secret to a long and happy marriage with The Paper Dwight.
The couple met a skating rink. Ray asked Betty to sk...ate. She could barely stand with her skates on, but it didn't matter. Ray held her up - just like he has done throughout their nearly 70 year of marriage.
They said the reason behind their happiness is simple: it's love.
“We’ve loved each other all of our lives,” Ray told The Paper. Betty agreed. “He loved me, and I loved him,” she said.
