This is not in a safe area of Chicago. Crime is high, but the senior apartments are secure. If a senior is already accustomed to the west-side of Chicago, this facility may be an option. However, if a senior is used to living in a lower crime area of the city, this is not likely to be a good fit.
As far as the facility—the retirement community is designed for fully independent seniors on a budget. Yes, the apartments are small, the décor is fairly general, and there aren’t a lot of bells and whistles—but it is comfortable.
Close to public transportation, a nearby senior center, and many attractions.
First and foremost, Humboldt Park is a neighborhood that is slowly but surely undergoing gentrification. While the apartment building itself has far more security than the average apartment building in the neighborhood—the building is best suited for seniors who already know their way around Humboldt Park. In other words, they must understand that going just one or two blocks in the wrong direction is not always safe.
As far as the building itself, the apartments are small but well-laid out. There are many community areas and opportunities for socialization. There is an in-house gym, outdoor patio, resident parking, and pets are allowed. No hands-on care is provided, but there are weekly grocery shopping trips.
As with all Senior Suites senior apartment communities, this is an independent living building—designed for seniors on a budget.
This building features independent senior apartments, with small studio and 1 bedroom units. The prices are ideal for residents on a budget, but sometimes there is a waiting list to move in.
Although this is an independent living facility, there are quite a few common areas—and group activities. Transportation is minimal, but there are trips to the grocery store and local shopping areas. Residents can cook in their apartments, or enjoy the buildings locally sourced cuisine.
No personal care is provided, but the building is secure--and each unit has an emergency call system built in.
This facility is exceptional, and the price reflects this. In other words, it is not ideal for seniors on a budget.
Unlike many senior residents, there are a multitude of floor plans to choose from, and there are even 2 bed 2 bath apartments and 1 bedrooms apartments with a spacious dining room and den. The facility offers both independent and assisted living, and even the independent livening floor plans are quite spacious.
While assisted living is offered, it is designed for seniors who are still for the most part independent. For example, a senior who needs assistance with weekly housekeeping and laundry, assistance bathing, 3 meals each day, or med reminders. Once mobility begins to decline, a private caregiver is required—or a move to a more hands on facility.
The building has excellent amenities and actives.
For residents who no longer drive, the building is close to Pace, CTA, and Metra.
This is an ideal independent living facility for active seniors who still want to live on their own, but want a bit more peace of mind. The building is secure, has onsite (and free) laundry facilities, and even has a 24 hour emergency call system. Residents can even request monthly housekeeping.
While all residents must be independent, there is cafeteria for seniors who do not want to cook all their meals. There are also weekly trips to the grocery store so that there is no need to carry heavy bags on the train or bus. That being said, this building is for active seniors who take public transportation, still drive, or can afford a cab or Uber for their daily/weekly outings. However, there is a senior center across the street which makes socialization easy to achieve without traveling far.
The Woodmark at Sun City is one of my most favorite senior living communities in AZ. The Woodmark is a gorgeous community inside and out and the staff and residents really seem to take pride in the community – it’s not every day you see residents excited to show off their assisted living home to family and visitors, but at The Woodmark, this is a common occurrence, which is an awesome thing to witness!
The community offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care. The care team/staff members within each care level work wonderfully with the residents, always doting on the residents. The residents seem to be easily able to form friendships with fellow residents and they really seem to enjoy participating in the activities and events offered on a day to day basis.
The Woodmark is one of those communities where it is nearly impossible to encompass all of its greatness in a review. I very highly encourage that you visit The Woodmark and see just how beautiful it is first hand!
Garden Estates of Temple has lots of charm. This facility has a distinctively ‘new’ feel about it. The facility is very spacious and modern with cozy furnishings that leave this facility feeling like an extension of home. I was quite impressed to see a piano in the building. Some of this facility’s amenities include daily meal service, a fitness center and regularly scheduled activities. Activities are even scheduled out in the local community, providing residents the opportunity to attend unique outings.
There are abundant amenities at this facility including a billiard room, and the residents appear to be enjoying themselves. Both the outside and the inside of the facility are very clean. The grounds at Garden Estates of Temple are well manicured and maintained with plenty of seating areas throughout. Inside the facility is quite clean with many recreational areas throughout the building.
The main dining area of the facility is open and spacious. The menu can easily cater to even the pickiest of eaters and the cooks seemed very accommodating. Staff at Garden Estates of Temple was very polite. Garden Estates of Temple is a well-managed facility with no shortage of fun activities to keep residents engaged. No matter where you turn, there always seems to be some sort of activity going on.
The amount of activities hosted at this facility is impressive, making this a great choice for someone who suffers from bouts of boredom. I highly doubt you will ever be bored at the Garden Estates of Temple. This is a great facility that nearly excels in all areas. There is room for improvement, but certainly no major problems. Garden Estates of Temple is modern and updated, but still manages to have a very relaxed atmosphere.
The living spaces of the residents seem comfortable, with updated features throughout. The living quarters for residents also appear to be quite spacious with plenty of space for those who might be visiting loved ones. Overall, the Garden Estates of Temple is a modern facility with plenty of amenities to keep residents happy, healthy and busy. Even despite this, there is still room for improvement in the area of management.
Royal Estates of Abilene is a unique community in my opinion because it offers a variety of activities catering to various cultural groups. They menu even offers plenty variety of homestyle choices. The staff here is friendly and helpful, I was able to ask lots of questions that were appropriately answered. This community is well maintained and close to shopping centers and restaurants.
This facility is a hubbub of activity and geared for residents who enjoy city life. A bus will take residents to various cultural sights in Chicago. The dining area is lovely and there are various entrees to choose from. Unlike other independent living facilities, there is nothing stuffy about the Breakers. The residents come from diverse backgrounds and are friendly. On the mezzanine level there is a sitting area and a place to enjoy playing cards and board games. A parking lot is attached to the facility. One draw back is that it is a high rise and elevators can get pretty crowded during meal time and you have to wait a while to get on.
I have never eaten at Lake Wylie, but their facility presents beautifully. I have worked with several folks who live there, and they have all been happy. The staff is extremely friendly, and I like that a concierge is available at the front door. They have a wide presence of hospice care, and that is commendable. The activities seem to be plentiful, and the residents were laughing during an activity when I last visited. The apartments are well appointed.
If you have a loved one who is searching for a retirement community in the Chicagoland area, this is certainly one of the best. The facility is upscale, and the monthly rates reflect this.
The facility is stylish and chic, and if you didn’t know it—you would never guess it is a senior community. Residents can cook in their apartments, but also have access to 3 different onsite dining options—a café, casual dining, and fine dining.
Many of the daily activities and social gatherings are held in the formal lounges, even the movie theater has comfy seating.
Minimal decline and assistance with ADLs can be addressed, but this is an active and youthful senior community.
This facility has a hotel-like feeling to it, but in a good way. Residents can come down for all of their daily meals, and can even enjoy a cocktail with dinner. A fair amount of the seniors here still drive, but for those who don’t—the activities schedule is designed for versatile interests.
The facility offers studios apartments, as well as 1 and 2 bedrooms—and even the studios are spacious and well laid out. All units have washers and dryers.
While assisted living and rehab are available, the facility caters more toward seniors who are primarily self-sufficient.
This is an Independent and assisted living community with 1 & 2 bedroom apartments that are equipped with grab bars, full kitchens and pull cords in case of emergency. There is a central dining room that provides 3 meals per day and will also deliver for an extra fee. The activities are varied and plentiful, including exercise group,community outings, and shopping trips in the community bus. The people that I have seen that live in this community were very happy with it and would recommend it to others.
I enjoy visiting Garden Estates of Tyler because it is a very nicely maintained both inside and out. The staff here was kind and informative. I looked at menus and activity calendar and they were sufficiently planned. Garden Estates is very clean and maintained. This community central located, so residents can easily access shopping, dinning, or theater.
I don't know that a review can fully convey what a safe, caring, professional, happy, and loving atmosphere one finds at The Sterling Aventura. My mom recently passed away and my father made the very difficult decision to relocate 1/2 way across the country to South Florida to be closer to us. I was completely unprepared for the job of finding an assisted living community and all that went into it. Among many other things, Barry Ger handles the leasing at The Sterling, and quite simply he can only be described as a gem. Upon meeting Barry, I immediately felt like I had a new friend, one who would walk me through the process every step of the way...and he did. Barry went so above and beyond the call of duty. He was incredibly accommodating and not only made my father feel welcome, but our entire family felt comfortable at The Sterling. It is obvious that Barry genuinely cares about the residents and their families, and pitches in like a family member to do what needs to be done for the residents. Mary Buchanan, the executive director, is just the same. She bent over backward to make my dad's transition a smooth one. In addition to her total professionalism, Mary always has a friendly smile and a warmth about her that personifies the caring feeling at The Sterling. And, it is the same with all the employees you encounter there from the nurses, the wait staff, the activities director, the concierge, etc. They are all concerned with making sure the residents are happy and well cared for. The food is delicious, also! Truly, it is so good, I'm worried my dad is going to gain too much weight if he isn't careful. The residents will all tell you that this place is the BEST, and to me, that means everything. I hope my dad can stay at The Sterling a long, long, long time! I think the best compliment I can give The Sterling is the fact that every time we go to visit my dad, my 14 year old and I look at each other and say how much we would like to live there! Barry and Mary have really set the bar high there, and the rest of the staff has lived up to the expectations. I have nothing but the best things to say about The Sterling Aventura!
The most appropriate way to describe this senior community is inconsistent. The largest area of opportunity seems to be the understanding that the property manager needs to be more aware of senior needs—and not someone who is only a standard real estate professional.
The staff turnover throughout is disappointing, meaning that the changes can be too much to keep up with.
On the bright side, the facility and grounds are well-maintained, and they have apartments that are suitable for seniors on a budget.
After breaking her hip my mother required a stay in an assisted living facility. We had been concerned about her living alone and saw that she was becoming more socially isolated as she was driving less and many of her friends were in the same situation. We looked at facilities with an eye on transitioning from assisted to independent living within the same facility. I was really depressed after the first few facilities we toured. Yes, they were clean and the staff was pleasant, but they just had that "nursing home" feel.
Then we toured Andara. Even though it was almost brand new it was being renovated (this was during the transition from Arte to Andara). The facility looks more like a luxury resort than a Senior facility while maintaining a feeling of warmth. Every staff member we interacted with was courteous, professional, and caring. We couldn't sign the paperwork fast enough!
The first day Mom was in Assisted they sent an "Ambassador" who took her to the beautiful dining room for lunch, sat her at her table and introduced her to her group of friends. That night I stopped by at 6:45 pm to visit thinking Mom would be back in her room since she went to dinner at 4:45. There she sat in the dining room with her table of friends, all of them smiling and chatting away. I left thinking it was good for her to socialize and went home with a smile on MY face.
Andara has in house PT and OT so mom was able to complete that without having to be transported elsewhere. The therapist was so caring and compassionate and constantly communicated with me. I voiced my concern that Mom needed to venture out a bit more and had encouraged her to go to the exercise classes on the days she didn't have therapy to no avail. Deanna the therapist picked up on this and told Mom she should go exercise on the off days. Guess who went the next day! Again, another opportunity to socialize.
When it came time to be released from Assisted we had a long "family council". Of course Mom hated the thought of giving up her home. But we asked her why she wanted to return to a life of eating alone everyday? We got her to just "look" at some apartments on the Independent side. When she saw how clean, modern and spacious they were she said she would "give it a try"!!
One year later we know we made the right choice. Mom is so happy there. The entire staff is so courteous and professional. They truly care about each resident. Andara is smaller than other facilities so it is easier to keep tabs on everyone. One day I was concerned when I could not reach Mom by phone several times. I called the friendly front desk lady who assured me she had just seen Mom go by on her way to Bingo! That's another thing--Mom swore she had no interest in Bingo--now she goes to that every day! So between walking to 3 meals daily in the Dining room, Bingo upstairs daily and daily exercise she gets up and moves much more than she did at home. There are plenty of activities and field trips outside the facility to appeal to everyone. Residents can be as active as they desire.
Our final hurdle was getting Mom to surrender her car. Again, we urged her to just "try" the shuttle that takes residents to a different shopping facility each day. She loved it. Again, going with others as opposed to going alone. Much safer too which relieves her children. Andara also has a "limo" (actually a bright red Cadillac!) which can be scheduled to take Mom to doctor appointments when one of us is not available.
I cannot say enough kind things about Andara. I feel Mom is in a much better place socially, physically, and mentally than she was a year ago. Please tour this facility if you are looking for Senior Living for your loved one!
This is an excellent community for seniors who are looking to lighten their load a bit. The community is modern, and from the outside you would never guess that it is a senior community--in a good way.
Seniors can simply live entirely independent, knowing that they will benefit from the additional layer of safety and security made available at Autumn Green. Or seniors can take advantage of the amenities such as group outings, social activities within the community, housekeeping, and daily check-ins.
It is also one of the few senior communities in the area that prioritizes locally sourced food.
The Breakers is the perfect place for active seniors. Many residents move in when their spouse passes, or they are ready to downsize their home.
Their activities calendar provides an ideal selection of activities in the building, and all around Chicago.
The building is well secured, and the staff is professional and responsive.
In addition to the impressive restaurant style daily dinners, there are a couple of good restaurants in walking distance. There is also a major grocery store in walking distance, and the lake is just a few blocks away.
The community is in a prime location very easy to access.The staff was very helpful and friendly.There are a lot of activities for the new guest to partake in.The building is also senior friendly .The food aroma hits you when you enter and you think man this feels like home.I could see myself on mirror like floors that were not slippery . Thumbs up on the cleanliness of the establishment
Acadia is located in a peaceful area. The staff members I encountered were kind and the residents seemed happy. Some of the residents were sitting around reading and others were participating in an activity. The areas I walked through were clean and I never smelled any foul odors. I enjoyed my visit and overall the staff and facility are very nice.
I recently took a close family friend to view the Amethyst for her father for whom she was looking for senior living. Up until our visit to Amethyst, she had been on 8 different tours of communities around the Glendale/Peoria vicinity. To that point, nothing had measured up to the requirements she had in a senior living community for her father. She turned to me because of my experience with senior living communities and I immediately thought of the Amethyst since it is just 2-3 miles from the family’s home. Because I had visited Amethyst several times, of which each time was a complete joy, I had high hopes for her reaction to be a positive one.
We got to Amethyst and were immediately received by such a warm and friendly welcome. The staff member who I had scheduled the tour with on the phone the day prior was well prepared and spoke to both my friend and I by name. She introduced herself and throughout the entire tour, she was extremely friendly. She spoke highly of the community – and not in a way that sounded like a sales pitch, but in a truly genuine manner – she seemed to really love the facility and the residents within it. She took the time to answer every single question and concern with very informed and compassionate answers – our tour actually went 45 minutes over the suggested time – She understood that this was a tough decision for my friend and that my friend was only looking for the best for her father. The staff member was empathetic to my friend’s feelings and to the situation. I think my favorite part of the tour was when the staff member asked my friend about her father, what he was like, any hobbies that he enjoyed, etc. She then introduced my friend and I to several residents with whom her father had something in common – such as her father was a Veteran and the lady introduced us to another resident who was also a Veteran and actually fought in the same war my friend’s father fought in.
The level of compassion and empathy that I saw that day was truly exceptional. Needless to say, my friend thought so to and moved her father in the following month. She truly felt as if she were doing her good by her father in placing him at the Amethyst – as did I. This was by far my favorite visit to this community and I would recommend it to anyone who is involved in the trying and difficult search for the perfect senior living community.
Wow, this location is perfect! Village at the Woodlands Waterway is absolutely beautiful. When I walked in it felt like I was on vacation at a fabulous resort. This community is peaceful, relaxing, and reminds me of a nice getaway spot. Once inside you are welcomed by relaxing sitting areas and for someone like me who loves to read, this is like heaven. The staff seemed very personable and caring. The food smelled wonderful and tasted just as good. All of the living spaces that I saw were clean, neat, and organized.
