I Visited This Community

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.
