Choosing a Charter Senior Living community means working with and developing relationships with experienced professionals in senior care who strive to improve the quality of life for residents and their families each day.
Our senior living services set us apart from other care facilities because we provide a true sense of community and personalization to older adults with specific needs and wants. In fact – we don’t even refer to ourselves as a “facility.” The warm, meaningful relationships cultivated and nurtured among residents, staff, leadership and families create a homelike neighborhood in New Lenox you won’t find anywhere else.

Alda Tole – Executive Director
Alda began her successful career with Charter more than five years ago. As a loyal and dedicated senior living expert, Alda has always regarded family and career equally. She attributes this mentality to her Albanian heritage. Her family showed her how dedication and hard work pay off in all aspects of life. Alda has always found inspiration from her grandmother, her driving force to provide quality care for seniors. From her humble beginning as a Caregiver to her current role as Executive Director, her motto has always been “advocacy over occupancy.” Her passion and dedication can be seen daily as she supports staff and makes residents smile. As a result of her dedication, Alda has led two communities in the Charter Senior Living portfolio to 100% occupancy with deficiency-free surveys. In her free time, Alda enjoys spending time with her two daughters, loving husband, and her dog and cat.
