L i f e S 2023 • ANNUAL REPORT

What a year 2023 was! We look back at a year full of change and progress, blessings and milestones. This was truly a year where we watched our Providence Life Services family embrace and celebrate community. We invite you to celebrate with us as we reflect on 2023 in this report. You’ll see a story of the bonds of family, as two sis- ters discuss life beginning in World War II Netherlands to their time now living at Park Place of St. John—all adventures that are better together. You’ll meet Joe, who was an accountant by day and an enter- tainer in the evenings, helping people trade their troubles for laughter. He now lives at Park Place of Elmhurst (he and his wife were actually the first to move in!) and has moved through their continuum of care with gratitude. You’ll be able to review what a year in the life of Providence looked like from resident, employee, and supporter

perspectives. Finally, we have included data on the financial position of our organiza- tion and the faithful donors who support our mission. With generosity, you have answered the call of God to serve our parents and seniors in the name of Jesus Christ, as partners with our staff and donors in a ministry of ser- vice. None of what you read within these pages could have happened without your support. As we reflect with gratitude on 2023, we also look forward to all that 2024 has to offer as we serve alongside you.

PROVIDENCE LIFE SERVICES Operations & Service: A Year in Review

Our team members have the pleasure of serv- ing residents, patients, and clients each day who they get to know on a personal level. That deeper understanding informs the plans that we make for operations and services. It gives those we serve, and those we hope to serve in the future, the con- fidence that they have made the right choice to live in a Providence community. Over the year, we were recognized by national or- ganizations for the quality of care we offer and for the level of satisfaction our residents, clients, and patients experience. All our living facilities received recognition from US News and World Report, who deemed them as “Best,” their highest award. We strive for quality in all our operations, and through that desire we voluntarily pursue further accreditation through the Joint Commission of Health Care Organizations. This year, we received accreditation in our Assisted Living and Memory Care program at Victorian Village. The staff’s efforts are evident in this program; they are first in the state of Illinois to earn Joint Commission Memory Care Certification for Assisted Living Communities. We expanded the therapy programs offered on all campuses with outpatient therapy services. Now residents who are noticing subtle changes or need more time in recovery can receive therapy services from a therapy team that have become familiar faces and trusted partners. Our community in St. John, Indiana, recognized the growing need for Assisted Living and has expanded the services they offer on the campus

to encompass this level of care. With this offering, we have a full continuum on the St. John campus from Retirement Living to Long Term Care. Our home and community-based services also ex- panded the kinds of services they provide to those they serve. Providence Hospice and Palliative Care received a grant through the Elea Institute to ex- pand their approach to care and integrate innova- tive and new approaches for their clients. Most importantly, we have continued to build into the lives of others and walked alongside them as they navigate life’s challenges and changes. Some of these individuals and their families have partnered with us over their life- time; for others their experience with Providence has been relatively new. In either case, they attest to the quality of life they experience, the new friendships they have formed, and the se- curity they feel with Providence’s living options and care services. Enhancing life: that is what we are called to do, and our mission “to enhance the lives of those we serve in the name of Jesus Christ “reflects this calling. Looking back at 2023, our communities achieved great things and started new programs, all with the goal of not only meeting the needs of others, but also bringing more to their lives.

THE BOND OF SISTERHOOD A Journey from Amsterdam to Park Place

Few bonds are stronger than sisterhood, and few sisters are closer than Gerrie Natelborg and Tini De- Boer, two residents at Park Place of St. John. Gerrie, 91, and Tini, 90, grew up as close as two sisters a year apart in age could be, with matching clothes, matching haircuts, matching bows in their hair. Their childhood was typically idyllic in the small village of Abcoude in the Netherlands where they lived, the two oldest children in a family of four girls. Their father Johannes (John) Fortuin was a well-re- spected horticulturist and landscape architect, and their mother assisted him in the greenhouse as much as she could. Along with their younger sister Bet- te, the sisters sang in churches at the insistence of their grandfather, forming a musical group called the Fortuin Sisters. They were a close family, but their father was certainly outnumbered at mealtime when everyone was excitedly talking together. “Sometimes he would throw up his hands and say, ‘Please be quiet,’” Gerrie says, “but we loved to talk and laugh. Eating together, with all of us, was special.” “But maybe sometimes a little too loud for Papa,” Tini adds, and the sisters laugh together.

However, World War II changed everything for their family. Their father, who stood against the Nazi regime, was drafted into the Dutch Army. John had no intention of assisting Hitler’s cause and joined the resistance movement. He had been imprisoned and sentenced to hard labor, but after developing an illness while in the prison camp, Kamp Altengrabau, was sent to a Dutch hospital. There, he was still con- sidered a prisoner and somehow, he escaped from the hospital and returned home. He went into hiding in various spots, including under the floorboards of their very own house or in a local farmhouse. “We have no idea how he escaped,” Tini says. “It was truly a miracle.” “Our Papa was no ‘sit-still,’” Gerrie adds. “He moved constantly. He could have crawled home from the hospital.” One morning, the girls were whispering in the early morning air in their shared bed on the top floor of their home when they heard heavy boots on the stairs leading up to their bedroom. Soldiers burst in, swastikas on the forearms of their uniforms, shout- ing, “Where’s your papa?”

2023 • Annual Report 3

Thankfully, on May 5, 1945, victory was declared against Hitler and the family felt deep relief. But they were also looking toward their future. Desiring more freedom for his business, a departure from communism and socialism, and concerned about the waning attendance in Dutch churches, the fam- ily moved to the United States when the girls were in their early teens, traveling to stay with family in Munster, Indiana. “We were all happy to move,” Tini says. “We never looked back.” The United States was a culture shock for the sisters. “We landed in Hoboken, New Jersey,” Tini says, “and we moved on to New York, where we waited for a train to take us to Hammond, Indiana. We walked around the city for a bit, and I noticed the potatoes. We never saw potatoes that big!” Gerrie laughs, adding, “I remember

Gerrie Natelborg Park Place Resident

Tini DeBoer Park Place Resident

The girls were too shocked to speak at first. Finally, little Gerrie managed to say, “We don’t know.” Even- tually they listened as the boots tramped back down their stairs, then heard the soldiers searching the rest of the house and the greenhouse futilely, yelling, as the girls clung to each other with fear. “Papa had said, ‘They got me once, but they’ll never get me again.’” Tini remembers. “Mama was so brave.

“I remember getting my first stick of gum, Juicy Fruit in the yellow wrapper. We never had gum—we used to chew on grain ker- nels until they became gum!”

getting my first stick of gum, Juicy Fruit in the yellow wrapper. We never had gum—we used to chew on grain kernels until they became gum!” The family became members of First Reformed Church in Lansing (now known

as First PCA), and the sisters enrolled at Illiana Chris- tian High School, where they assimilated quickly, thanks to being fluent in both Dutch and English (as well as German and French). They soon married just five months apart, Tini at 19 and Gerrie at 20, to boys they met at church. They raised their families in Northwest Indiana, and now both reside at Park

She kept everything together, all of us, and never gave in to fear of those men.” They truly didn’t know exactly where their father was, but they knew he was likely nearby. His location was always kept secret from the sisters, and from most of the family (their grandpa lived across the street, and he didn’t even know).

Place. Because they live at separate ends of the retirement living building, they meet in the middle of the build- ing daily for dinner, and they also enjoy bingo, bunco, knitting, hymn sing, and Bible study together at Park Place. Sometimes the two ladies get together to play a game of Uno or Skip-Bo and share what’s happened in their days. Tini subscribes to a Dutch newspaper, and when she’s done reading it she passes it along to Gerrie to enjoy. The two sisters have different pur- suits as well. Tini still attends United

new friends they’ve made at Park Place. But when they want to have a private conversation, they speak in their secret sister language—which just happens to be Dutch! These sisters have seen a great deal of change in their lifetime, but they both look at the course of their lives with faith and gratitude, and both feel especially happy with the lives they’ve built at Park Place. “When we were girls, Gerrie and I shared a bed, and our younger sister Bette slept in an alcove with a bed built into the wall,” Tini says. “Now look at us! We couldn’t ask for anything more.” They say they are both looking forward to the hope of being reunited with their family one day.

Reformed Church in St. John twice a day on Sundays. Gerrie is a still member at First PCA, and she enjoys visits at Park Place by her pastor and other mem- bers often. Gerrie enjoys Wii Bowling competitions, dominoes, and Scrabble, while Tini plays pinochle and uses her computer to keep up with her British pen pal of over 70 years. “I don’t do anything on computers,” Gerrie adds with a laugh. Family is still everything to these two sisters. Tini has 4 children, 12 grandkids, and 24 great-grand- kids, while Gerrie has 5 children, 18 grandkids, 42 great-grandkids, and 1 great-great-granddaugh- ter. Their children take turns helping when need- ed, but the sisters love the freedom and space they have with their private apartments. They’ve expanded their family more to include the many

The Entertainer PARK PLACE OF ELMHURST RESIDENT RECALLS A LIFE OF LAUGHTER “I always wanted to be a comedian,” Joe Vinci says, “but I was afraid people would laugh at me.”

“I liked both careers,” he says. “Both of those things are a part of my story.” He may have been skilled in the world of finance, but entertaining was his passion. From a young age, he was the life of family parties, breaking out his accor- dion and even inspiring admiration in a young man named Ed Vodicka, a family friend’s son who would one day become the Chicago Cubs’ organist. Today, Eddie honors his friend Joe by playing complimentary concerts for the Park Place residents. “It’s good practice for him, and brings great happi- ness to us here,” Joe says. Joe retired from accounting at age 60, but continued his musical career, playing part-time at churches, funeral homes, and anywhere else he could lift people’s spirits with his unique gifts. Music was a language that spoke louder than words could, espe- cially in times of grief. “I still love music, all music,” Joe says. “That’s one of the things I love about living here. They bring in entertainment, different kinds, all the time. Some I like better than others, but everyone is some- body’s favorite. The staff here just want to make sure they have something for everyone.”

Joe’s delivery is impeccable, the comic timing of a seasoned performer. As he sits in his Park Place of Elmhurst apartment and tells a story of his child- hood, he interrupts himself to ask, “Did you hear the one about the rope?” Then adding, “Just skip it.” Joe and his wife Barbara were the first people to move into Park Place of Elmhurst when it opened in 2012. “We spent four years researching where we wanted to move,” he remembers. “We knew we were getting the best value here overall, but people who work here were just tremendous from day one, and they kept it up after we moved in. Everyone here just wants to take care of you.” Joe knows what it’s like to find creative ways to make people feel at ease after spending most of his life as a successful entertainer. He laughs easily as he recalls his vaudeville days, where he and his wife brought their unique blend of comedy and music to crowds on the West Side and in downtown Chicago. During the day, he was a buttoned-up accountant, but at night, he and Barbara made people forget their worries and lose themselves in music and laughter.

6 Providence Life Services • With You, For You

Joe has appreciated that Park Place of Elmhurst fit his and Barbara’s plans for retirement, and he con- tinues to feel the advantages of a continuum of care as his health and needs for assistance change. Out of gratitude, Joe has donated his estate to Provi- dence so that this ministry can continue to serve others for generations to come. He knows others will find what they’re looking for within the walls of Park Place, just as he has. For Joe, entertaining others has always been a source of joy, for not only him, but all of us who are blessed to be in his audience. Beth McGowan Welch, Execu- tive Director at Park Place of Elmhurst, echoes that

sentiment and the value that humor has brought to Joe’s life and those around him. “Joe has been such an important part of the Park Place of Elmhurst community,” she says. “He can always be counted on for his wit and charm. It’s difficult to leave Joe’s presence without a chuckle, which regularly lightens my day.” We are so thankful he picked up the accordion at age 13 and “never really put it down,” as he says. “One hundred and twenty buttons,” Joe says, “and I know ‘em all.”

We are bombarded dai- ly by people looking for gifts and support, and as Christians, we are cer-

strong at a Providence community. Our gifts help us train and educate our compassionate staff to make sure they are putting their best foot forward each day at work. We can help those living in our Memo- ry Care communities have the special touches they need to feel peace and comfort. We can continue our chaplaincy program that has brought so much care to our residents and their families. We can continue to help Providence enhance lives, as they have faithfully for over 100 years. As you consider a gift to Providence, I can share from my own experience that I have been blessed by giving to this mission-based organization. My family has been blessed. And when you look at those liv- ing at Providence communities and those receiving Providence services, they and their families have been blessed because we have answered the call to give. Those families have entrusted their loved ones to Providence, and our gifts help Providence fulfill the mission that sets them apart. That’s why I give, and will continue to give, and that’s why I urge you to consider a gift as well.

tainly called to give. It’s an important part of who we are. So why give to Providence Life Services? What sets Providence apart from so many other non-for- profits who rely on the generosity of others? In my experience, it starts with the mission. Prov- idence’s mission is to enhance the lives they serve in the name of Jesus Christ. My mother was a res- ident at a Providence community for three years, so my family and I saw firsthand what that mission looks like in action. Her experience was exceptional, which in turn made our family’s experience excep- tional. We could rest assured that when we weren’t there by her side, she was never truly alone. Aside from the rich circle of friends she built there among other residents, we saw countless examples of staff who truly cared about her deeply. We can say with confidence that hers was a life enhanced by Providence, as was ours. I currently volunteer my time serving as Board Chair at Providence, and I gladly give financially as well. I’m fully invested in Providence because I have seen what these financial gifts can do. We can assist those whose resources have run out so that they can finish
