ST. LOUIS, Missouri, December 8, 2023 – Lutheran Senior Services (LSS), a leading non-profit provider of care, services, and senior living for older adults in Missouri and Illinois, and St. Louis Home Health (STL-HH), a reputable home health agency with a specialty in orthopedics, today announced they have signed a definitive agreement under which LSS will acquire STL-HH.
“This is an exciting development for older adult patients and families because it expands LSS’ best-in-class home health services, adds specialty orthopedic expertise, and expands access to high quality care to more patients with an extended footprint in Illinois,” said Adam Marles, president and chief executive officer of LSS. “We’re proud to welcome St. Louis Home Health to the LSS family and will continue to serve their current orthopedic patients regardless of their age.”

It also offers premier Life Plan Communities providing services and amenities in a continuum of levels from Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care Assisted Living, Long Term Care and REACH Short Stay Rehabilitation, in addition to Affordable Housing communities with low-income apartment options.
“Investing in our home and community-based solutions is core to our growth strategy and reflective of our commitment to listen to older adults and provide options for those who desire to age in place and experience personalized quality care at home,” said Marles.
“For over 25 years St Louis Home Health has strived to provide the highest quality home care services to orthopedic patients and it is gratifying to know that level of quality and compassionate care will continue from LSS, a faith-based non-profit,” said Bill Hopfinger, Owner/ CEO STL-HH.
Driven by their mission, LSS is passionate about helping older adults live their lives with purpose and fulfillment, and part of that is equipping and supporting them to be as independent as possible, wherever they call home.
The transaction is expected to close at the end of December 2023.
