Concord Living Launches Floor for Veterans

    The  Anthony Siciliano Family is proud to have sponsored a room on the new veterans’ floor at Concord Living in Northlake, Illinois. Earlier this year, The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation and Kendall County Salute to Veterans entered into a partnership with Concord Place Assisted Living Community.  Through this collaboration, the 15th floor of Concord was dedicated to housing veterans in private suites.  Twelve of these 35 apartments have been furnished for the new residents; sponsored by local businesses and individual donors.  Anthony Siciliano is the president/founder of ALC, which provides home health care services to Concord. His family “adopted” one of the rooms, furnishing it for the veteran who is calling it his new home.

    “We are so proud to be part of this initiative,” said Anthony.  “Our United States veterans have sacrificed so much for their country, and it’s shocking to me that many of them are in their later years, finding themselves without resources.  It is an honor for the Siciliano family to be able to help provide a warm and welcoming home to these men and women who deserve to be treated with respect, dignity and kindness.”
