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.
Regal Estates is clean, modern, and nicely decorated for a comfortable feeling like home. The staff seemed attentive and I saw a few interacting with residents and laughing. I visited on a beautiful day and was able to see one resident being pushed in his wheelchair around the community getting a chance to take in the nice weather. Regal Estates was clean, peaceful, organized, and well kept.

Facility: You walk into a massive, gorgeous lobby that is backed by a breathtaking wrap-around staircase. The lobby is full of sitting areas and comfortable furniture for socialization. The facility is stunningly decorated with welcoming colors and beautiful artwork. It seems like every piece of décor, piece of artwork, piece of furniture, etc. was perfectly placed in the space it was meant for and the entire community is kept white glove-test-worthy clean – almost uncomfortably clean, like you are afraid to take a step in fear of dirtying up the facility, but for some reason, it still feels homey.

There are many social areas throughout, including an activity room with a pool table and poker/card tables.

Staff/Quality of Care: Amazing. The care team at Andara, no matter the department, is always placing the needs and safety of the residents first above all else. They are wonderful in interacting with the residents, they are very caring and seem to really enjoy working at Andara, which is a very refreshing thing to see in a senior living community. When a resident moves in, they are assigned a personal care plan which helps to offer personalized one-on-one care based on a resident’s specific needs.
Residents: The residents seem to really love living here. They seem as if they feel very comfortable and at home within the community. All of the residents seem to get along very well – it is rare to see a resident sitting or walking by themselves as they usually do everything together.
Food Service: The food service at Andara is just like fine dining in a beautiful restaurant. The dining options are menu-style, offering a variety of delicious and beautifully presented meals. There are also snacks available at all times for residents. What I really appreciate is that the dining staff/chefs chat with the residents and hold regularly scheduled meetings to determine the types of meals the residents would like to have incorporated into the menus as well as to gain suggestions on how the dining team can make the dining experience even better for the residents. They appear to really care about the residents suggestions and implement as many of those suggestions as possible.
Andara is a wonderful, breathtaking community – true resort-style living.

The Woodmark at Sun City is one of my favorite senior living communities in all of Arizona. Not only is it located in the 5-star senior living city of Sun City, but it is located in a part of Sun City that is incredibly convenient. Anything a resident could want is close by. The Woodmark offers Independent & Assisted Living and Memory Care and the care they provide is incredible. The staff members at the Woodmark are some of the most patient, caring people. The way they interact with each resident is personable and loving – the employee morale seems very high and the staff members truly seem to love their jobs, which is often, sadly, a rare occurrence in senior living.
The facility is gorgeous, you really have to see it firsthand to really soak it all in. Whenever I visit I don’t want to leave – I want to move right in with the residents and stay put. The grounds are always impeccably landscaped and clean. There are many sitting areas and walking paths available so the residents can enjoy the fresh outdoors. There is also a greenhouse for those residents who enjoy gardening. The interior of the community is breathtaking. You can see that they put so much pride and dedication into the design of the building. The facility is always kept so clean and it always smells great. The common areas are stunning with tall ceilings, beautifully painted walls, beautiful flooring, a striking staircase, and lots of windows allowing natural light to flood in, and beautiful décor throughout. There are so many sitting areas full of comfy, cozy furniture for the residents to socialize with family, friends, and fellow residents. There is one sitting area with a homey fireplace as the focal point. It is a very inviting area that residents and visitors love. The dining room is probably my favorite part of the facility, it is absolutely elegant while remaining comfortable.
The Woodmark provides many great activities, services, and amenities to help the residents remain active and live a fulfilling life that enriches the mind, body, and spirit. There is a lovely library stocked full of books, a large fitness center, activity/game rooms, a salon and a gorgeous spa offering so many services for pampering and relaxation. There is an adorable little 50’s style diner/café.
The food service at the Woodmark is 5-star fine-dining all the way. The menu options are plentiful and the food service staff is committed to designing the menu based on the tastes and desires of the residents.

Orchard Park is conveniently located in McKinney. The skilled, compassionate memory care professionals seem to be dedicated to providing residents with the care they need while they enjoy the community’s warm atmosphere. The calendar shows lots of activities designed with the needs of residents whether they are active or not. They have 24 hour care available if residents are having a health crisis and they are comfortable in calling additional help as needed, such as home health. The pricing seems to be in line with the pricing in the immediate area. I recommend touring this property if you are needing the McKinney area.
Greatwood at Sugarland has a very cozy up-scale feel when you enter. The staff is kind and friendly. The administration staff are professional and helpful, and the nursing team show a lot of loving care to the residents. Some of the residents seem to be really down to earth and content. While others seem to be bit conservative. There are plenty of things to do for the residents to maintain their quality of life. When dining Seniors are served a well balanced meal. Depending on your preference, the taste may be a little bland. Overall, they are a wonderful independent/assisted living providing great care.
Fountain View Village is really an exceptional community. The dining room is one of my favorite areas – the tall, open windows show off beautiful Arizona landscape and the atmosphere is so relaxing and comfortable, making it the perfect place to socialize and enjoy amazing food service.

The kitchen/dining staff keep the dining area incredibly clean and they cater to the residents needs during mealtimes, while serving meals on 5-star-restaurant-worthy dressed tables.

I visited Emerald Springs again just last month and I was very impressed by the positive changes I noticed that had taken place since my previous visit. While this used to be a community I would not recommend to anyone, I am beginning to quickly change my opinion. Here’s why…
Facility: The facility has made a complete turnaround since gaining new management. What was once a filthy, stained, dusty mess had turned into a bright, open, and spacious area that was very welcoming. One of the first things I noticed was that I wasn’t sneezing – during my prior visit, there was so much dust everywhere that I could not stop sneezing, it was awful. However, now, the dust was gone and my allergies remained unscathed. Everything looked to be in good working order. I did not see any maintenance issues or safety concerns. The overall feel of the community was now inviting and I wasn’t counting the minutes until I could finally leave. This time around I was able to focus on connecting with the residents instead of being preoccupied with the condition of the facility.
Residents: The residents seemed very comfortable and happy. One lady told me that she had moved in recently and that she felt so welcomed by the residents and staff from the very first day. She said that everyone has been so helpful in showing her the lay of the land.
Staff/Quality of Care: The staff members made it a point to call the residents by name. They seemed committed to provided one-on-one care and they never seemed rushed when interacting with a resident. I was very impressed with the level of care and attention provided to the residents.
Activities: They offer many events and activities that family members are encouraged to attend. There are also volunteer opportunities available to residents who like to contribute and keep busy.
Food: The food always looks and smells delicious. There is a plethora of options to satisfy the palate each resident.
The quality of service at the Inn at Amethyst is truly outstanding. I took a friend's grandmother to view the facility, and though she was a little nervous at first, the staff were so personable and made her feel very welcome. We joined in an activity they were having and she had the greatest time socializing and making new friends. Following the activity, we enjoyed dinner in the dining room, and she fell in love with the meatloaf gravy and mashed potatoes. She said that it was absolutely the epitome of a home cooked meal. She said the food alone was worth making the move to the facility. When it was time to leave, I practically had to pull her out of there! I was incredibly happy with how the staff made her feel so welcome. They almost instantly put any anxiety she may have been feeling to rest by introducing her to residents and getting her involved with the activities. They gave her an idea of what a typical day living there would be like, and I think that really helped her to feel more comfortable with the impending transition from her own home to her assisted living home. She realized that her life there was not going to impose the boring and sedentary lifestyle she had been afraid of. Instead she found that the Inn at Amethyst supports and encourages a very active and healthy lifestyle and they going even further in this support by offering residents a wide variety of different activities to choose from each month. She really fell in love with the Inn at Amethyst and I was very impressed with the quality of service and care that I observed.
Very large chain put in one. The environment is very homelike. Great staff and wonderful residents to interact with. Everyone is a family and it is a great place to work and live. There food is awesome. It smells great and you feel like you are on vacation when you walk in the doors. They greet you well and treat you well. No better place to be. Go by and take a look at the place and you will see what I mean.
