This facility is a shining example of what an active retirement looks like. While this is an independent senior community, it provides the opportunity for socialization that many seniors lose as friends move out of state to retire—or as close friends and family begin to pass away. Many seniors in the building still drive, and if they don’t—they take advantage of the facility’s group activities, or they plan activities with their new friends in the building. The apartments are certainly smaller than a standard Evanston home, but they are larger than a standard Evanston apartment—as well as larger than most senior retirement communities.

Description of Ten Twenty Grove
Everything you need to fill your day is just moments away at Ten Twenty Grove. A brief walk will have you on the shores of Lake Michigan while a short drive south will place you at the doorstep of Chicago and all of its cultural attractions. And at our community, daily activities allow you to spend the day alongside other spirited people just like yourself.
Ten Twenty Grove is one of five communities owned by Presbyterian Homes. For more than 100 years, our nonprofit, faith-based organization has served older adults from diverse backgrounds throughout the greater Chicago area. We strive to be an industry leader in developing innovative and quality residential programs that enrich the lives of older adults.
Views of the Evanston skyline, full kitchens and modern décor are found in all of our one- two- and three-bedroom apartments. While our apartments offer the independence of a house, you won't have to worry about the maintenance or upkeep that is required since we handle all routine apartment maintenance. All utilities are included in the monthly fee except for telephone.
Your new home at Ten Twenty Grove is about more than just the apartment; it's about an entire community. There is a library and other gathering areas where residents meet for activities or to catch up on the day's happenings. New residents quickly feel welcomed into the community thanks to our community-wide events that include an annual talent show and midsummer art show.
The Kimble Fitness Center at our nearby Westminster Place is available for you to use whenever you want. We even provide shuttle service so you won't have to drive. It has a fitness pool, warm-water therapy pool and a spacious exercise room. Exercise classes are hosted throughout the day, and the building also has a billiards room and a multi-purpose room.
Other helpful services that will make your life easier include weekly housekeeping and shuttle service for shopping and other errands. For the nights when you don't want to cook, you may visit The Highlands at King Home or Westminster Place and enjoy chef-prepared meals. We also offer wellness services and health care at the Hansen Clinic.
When you are ready to join a vibrant community filled with spirited, community-minded seniors, it is time to make Ten Twenty Grove your new home.
