MISHAWAKA, INDIANA— U.S. Rep. Rudy Yakym (R-IN) visited AHEPA Senior Living’s Hellenic Senior Living of Mishawka, a 136-unit affordable assisted living lifestyle community, on June 2, 2023.

“We were excited to welcome Congressman Yakym to Hellenic Senior Living of Mishawaka,” AHEPA Senior Living (ASL) President and CEO Steve Beck said. “We applaud his commitment to Indiana’s older adults, and his interest in learning about our mission to provide seniors with safe and dignified affordable housing and the quality aging services they need to thrive. We thank him for choosing to visit our community and for spending time with our residents, board members, and our team.”

In a Facebook post, Congressman Yakym wrote, “Hellenic Senior Living of Mishawaka does great work to serve our senior Hoosiers and ensure they can enjoy an independent lifestyle. Thanks to the residents for welcoming me and sharing your wisdom with me today!”

Hellenic Senior Living of Mishawaka is located at 1540 Logan Street. It is owned and managed by AHEPA Senior Living.
