A Little About Us

Steven Buttice | Providing Free Assistance To Seniors Since 1984 | Living By Your Design, Inc.Living by Your Design was formed in January of 2013 to address the lifestyle and healthcare needs of those experiencing major life transitions.

In addition to providing free assistance with temporary or permanent living arrangements, Steven Buttice, our founder, and his team strive to reduce or alleviate stress for all involved.

Living By Your Design is an excellent resource for the “sandwich generation” as well. This group is comprised of those between the ages of 45 and 60 who tend to the needs of both children and their own parents. Sometimes the situation is compounded by the physical distance between the sandwich generation and their parents.

The Living By Your Design Team recognizes the anxiety that often accompanies placing a loved one in a new and unknown living situation. Their expertise and years of experience enable them to ease clients fears by reducing the many accompanying stressors. Living By Your Design eliminates the need to wade through entrance qualifications, financial assistance and other issues related to transitioning into home health care, a healthcare facility or senior living development. Living By Your Design serves an eight-county area, with plans for major expansion.

Steven Buttice, owner of Living By Your Design, is passionate about empowering people to make important decisions during various life stages. Aging in particular presents unique challenges, especially when new healthcare issues arise and living needs change. Steven’s background as a board member at the Central Illinois Agency on Aging and owner of Medical Reimbursement has prepared him to help seniors and their loved one's transition from living on their own to assisted care or independent senior living.

Having a bachelors degree and certification in Gerontology from the University of Illinois, Steven Buttice has served on an advisory board for a congressman on Medicare. He is regarded as an authority on Medicare and insurance and is often called upon to speak at educational seminars. Frequently interviewed by Central Illinois TV and radio journalists, Steven writes columns for the local publications “Healthy Cells” and “News and Views.” He is also a guest instructor at ICC, as well as all three Peoria hospitals and Pekin Hospital.
