Good Life Residences at Pat Crowley House
Pat Crowley House is a three-story, handicap-accessible, converted six-flat building located in Edgewater, opened in 1983. The house accommodates 12 seniors who need assistance with daily living tasks, four resident assistants, and one family in an intergenerational community. Common areas include living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Four resident assistants (typically college age young people) live in one of the third floor apartments. The resident assistants assist residents with housekeeping and laundry, as well as sharing creative and social activities with them.
The Pat Crowley House was named in honor of the co-founder of the Christian Family Movement and well-known civic leader who died of cancer in 1974 at the age of 62. Pat Crowley's life exemplified the ideals of tolerance and compassion, and provided the inspiration for this intergenerational home. In that spirit, the residents at The Pat Crowley House strive to live as a close-knit family, learning to share and care for one another.
