What Are Service Coordinators?
Service Coordinators (SCs) are a valuable resource and an important part of the overall management team. Service Coordinators link residents with services and resources within the community and assist residents in building an informal network of support.
Service Coordinators are an integral part of the management team. By being proactive in supporting residents needs, the ability of residents to maintain lease obligations is increased by addressing the needs and difficulties of residents that can jeopardize tenancy. They promote effective partnerships with property managers and service providers to improve the property and the community at large. The Service Coordinators ability to work with community agencies on behalf of the residents goes a long way in enhancing good will and the overall view of the property within the community.
Service Coordinators work closely with residents and their families, to enhance and improve their lifestyle. Most importantly, Service Coordinators empower residents to make healthy and informed choices to live their most fulfilled lifestyle!

November 2020 will be my 15th year living at Hammond Elderly Apartments. Once I moved in, I knew that this was the place for me. The Property Management office has always been fair with me even when I was late paying my rent. There is a Service Coordinator located on the 3rd floor that is extremely helpful. There is nothing that I would change about Hammond Elderly Apartments. I just love it here!- Apartment Ratings
