I Visited This Community
This is a retirement community in the smallish western suburb of Northlake, Illinois. Casa San Carlo is for people who can live independently. There are couples and singles who live here. The one and two bedroom apartments are very nice. There is a separate kitchen/eating area, living room and bathroom. Some of the apartments have lovely views of a grassy area. The facility provides lectures and activities and there is also a bus to take residents shopping. The residents seem down to earth and friendly although I am told that there are several cliques, but this is common in retirement communities. The food also has a reputation for being excellent and there is a lovely dining area on the lower level. The facility also offers religious services and there is a small chapel also on the lower level. Occasionally there are jewelry and clothing sales. One complaint from residents is there isn't very much nearby, although there is a library down the street and it is fairly close to more bustling suburbs, such as Elmhurst and Melrose Park. There is ample parking.
