I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My dad has been at Montvale Estates for about a month now. It suits all the needs he has and they're very accommodating. He is having a lot of fun playing all the activities they provide. They're keeping him occupied. He used to have hallucinations and paranoia, but none of those things have happened since he moved into this community. He is having an enjoyable time, he likes the staff, and the residents. They showed him what the activities are and helped him during meals. They also set him up with a couple of people to get to know and hang out with. The food is really good, but sometimes there's only three options. The other day, my dad had salmon, chicken, fried steak, and ice cream, so it's all really good.

I Visited This Facility

Montvale Estates was very nice, very well kept, and clean, and the staff was very nice. We were very happy with the facility. They had a library and a very nice dining room, took little trips, and served three meals a day plus snacks. They provided housekeeping and nursing care. The apartments were air-conditioned, but the hallways weren't, and it was very uncomfortable. We saw an efficiency apartment that was fine, clean, and well kept. They had transportation available if needed. I really liked the staff, but we cannot afford the price.

Description of Montvale Estates


Located in a quiet, west suburb of Springfield, Montvale Estates offers you an elegant home just outside Illinois' historically significant capitol. We're conveniently close to shopping, healthcare and all the culture of Lincoln's birthplace. Take time to visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Lincoln's Tomb, Sangamon River and Carpenter Park. We're more than a community here – we're a family, and you'll love coming home to us.

Montvale Estates is managed by Holiday Retirement, a leading provider of independent senior living services. We pride ourselves on providing security, comfort and value to tens of thousands of seniors seeking a fulfilling, independent lifestyle.

Featured Amenities

Montvale Estates is an all-inclusive retirement community for independent and active seniors. Our independent living apartments come in a variety of sizes and floor plans. We encourage residents to furnish their homes to their own taste and we welcome their cats and dogs. Rent includes cable television and all utilities except phone.

Our community has its own exercise and fitness room to hone the body and a billiards lounge and game room to keep the mind sharp. Our TV and media room has video gaming equipment and, for the more competitive, regular Wii bowling tournaments. Three nutritious meals a day are provided by our professional chefs, who can even cater events in our private dining room.

Available Services

If you take a close look around our community, you may notice that a few of our residents stand out. These are our Community Managers, who live on site to provide 24-hour support and security. You'll see them sharing a meal with residents in our dining room, attending one of our social events and taking the time to make sure each and every one of our residents feel welcomed and included.

As cleaning and laundry are no fun at all, our housekeeping staff will take care of all of that including laundering of linens and towels. Residents also benefit from our on-site management team, available to address concerns 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Montvale Estates is a unique independent living community designed for active seniors.
