Based in Evanston, IL, Mather LifeWays enhances the lives of older adults by creating Ways to Age Well. Founded in 1941 by entrepreneur and humanitarian Alonzo Mather, Mather LifeWays is a unique not-­‐for-­‐profit organization dedicated to providing a continuum of living and care; making neighborhoods better places for older adults to live, work, learn, contribute and play; and identifying, implementing, and sharing best practices for wellness, workforce issues, memory care support and empowering caregivers.


Charley Sankovich, Assistant VP of I.T. Systems, was looking for a more efficient way to handle his corporate cellular services. Mather LifeWays was having difficulty leveraging its carrier for better service and better rates. At times, it was difficult to manage costs, especially when new devices were purchased from retail carriers.


RAM Communications, Inc. has been providing telecommunications services to Mather LifeWays since 2008. In June 2012, Charley Sankovich, Assistant VP of I.T. Systems, was in need of someone to
assist in administrating their corporate cell phone accounts. After years of working with RAM and getting positive results, Charley felt RAM would be the best company to help his staff manage its cellular phone users. RAM brought in its cellular expert and partner, Caleb Sundvall, to assist. Caleb brought his experience and expertise to help Charley’s staff.
