Tell the LSS Story in an Elevator Ride

It’s happened again. You tell someone you work at Lutheran Senior Services and they respond with, “What’s that? Tell me more.”

Where to start! Your head is spinning – we do so much! Senior living communities, Home and Community Based Services, Affordable Housing… All built on 160 years of history based right here in the Midwest.

If you’ve found yourself in this situation, it’s time to take a minute and pull together a quick Elevator Speech. Or a short introduction you could give to someone in the time it would take to ride an elevator up a floor or two.

Try this:

LSS is one of the largest not-for-profit senior living providers. We also offer other services – Home and Community Based and affordable housing. We have communities throughout Greater St. Louis, Mid-Missouri, and Illinois. Our mission is Older Adults Living Life to the Fullest.

After this quick summary of what LSS does, now add in how you work with those we serve. Maybe you work in a community and spend time with our residents and guests. Perhaps you help older adults interested in moving into one of our communities. Or you provide support services across our organization. No matter what you do at LSS, you are an important part of the mission and it’s important that you tell the LSS story!
