Don’t take it just from us, our residents and their families have many great things to say about the St. Louis Altenheim. Read their testimonials and watch their videos below.

“It’s been awhile since I took a vacation, but living at the Altenheim is as good as one. I can relax in my beautiful room, go to exercise class, enjoy a game of Bingo with friends, then join my neighbors in the dining room that overlooks the Mississippi. Now that’s service.”

“I couldn’t live any where else and get the quality of living that I get at the Altenheim.”

“I tell my friends to take a hard look at what they’re getting now, then come and visit me at the Altenheim. I like showing off my new home here especially the Chapel!”

“I need a little extra help and Altenheim is here to provide the security and care I need. They take care of my housekeeping, personal laundry and meals—that takes a lot of work off me. My room has a call system to ask for assistance at any time of the night or day and that’s comforting.”

“Altenheim has a warm, comfortable touch that you don’t find in big senior facilities. It’s a residence, and I’m proud to call it my home and the residents my family.”

“Now when my children visit me at the Altenheim, they have more time to spend with me. Before I moved to the Altenheim, my children spent their time helping me run errands and home repairs. Now we have real time for each other.”

“Altenheim takes care of my housekeeping and prepares all my meals. Finally someone else is waiting on me!”

“I used to sit alone at home and wish that someone would call or stop by. I wish I moved to the Altenheim sooner. I have good neighbors, all kinds of entertainment and music. Living at the Altenheim is like living in a fine, elegant home with services that you can’t get living on your own.”

“I just love coming to the dining room for a meal. My table is near the window where there is such a wonderful view of the Mississippi River. No other senior living residence in St. Louis has a location like Altenheim!”

"My mother had the most competent and loving geriatric medical care at the St. Louis Altenheim that I have witnessed in my career."

"On behalf of our entire family, I would like to extend to each of you our deep and sincere thanks for the kind, caring and respectful manner in which you cared for our mother and grandmother. Your kindness will never be forgotten. Please keep up the good work!"

"We aren't unique in struggling with the changes life has brought, but I feel we chose well in choosing St. Louis Altenheim and I can never adequately express my gratitude for the loving care my parents receive."

"I can't say enough about your staff—from the nurses to the CNA's, to the dining room staff to the guards—and everyone in between. He was always comfortable and loved. You have my sincere thanks and appreciation."

"We all feel truly blessed to have found such a wonderful place for our mother."

"We were amazed at the beautiful setting and the friendly atmosphere."

"Thanks for all your wonderful staff who helped mother, they continually showed their dedication and professionalism."
