Plum Landing was smaller and older than other places. The area that it's in seems to be an older area and there was heavily traveled street right in front of the building. The building seemed to be a little older. There was only one unit that had a kitchen. They had a much older population and they didn't seem to have a lot of activities posted. Interestingly, when you walk in the front and speak to the person at the desk, you were on the fifth floor. The building was behind that down a hill. It's not a facility that I would consider. There was a chapel and I saw one area which was part of the dining room. It's used off hours for card playing and things of that sort. The staff member was very courteous and friendly, but they were a little understaffed overall.
I’d like to start by thanking She01 for taking the time to write a review of Plum Landing. I do feel the need to respond to several items she mentions. We are smaller and older. Our 64 apartments mean the staff and residents know each other by name, and our 56 years in business mean we have the experience to provide our residents the services and amenities they’re looking for. She is correct that we are in the original part of Aurora on Lake St. (Rt.31). It makes us very convenient to all the amenities Aurora has to offer, including the Paramount Theatre and its highly acclaimed Broadway series, The Hollywood Casino, RiverEdge Park, local restaurants, park district community center next door, walking path, nearby medical facilities, and quick access to highways and I-88 when needed. The fact that you walk into the top floor of a six-story building that is built into the hillside leading down to the Fox River makes it hard to notice our convenient location. The sounds of the road are replaced by the calming influence of the Fox River and park land next door. I am confused by the “one unit that had a kitchen”, as every apartment from the studios to our largest apartments have a complete kitchen including gas range, refrigerator, and microwave. Our Dining Room is not part of any other area. It is beautiful however, with all meals served by attentive servers (no buffets) on white linen, with china, glass, and silver. There are separate lobby areas on other floors that are ideal for card playing or just getting together, including the 4th Floor with its Coffee Hour and Country Store. If you’re looking for all the best in senior living, and the best location in the area, please call me at 630-896-5031 for a tour. Thank you. Don Mangers, Executive Director
The price is affordable but the amenities follow suite. Housekeeping and maintenance are included, a basic dining room with a handful of options per meal, etc. They pride themselves most on the activities. While they have the basics like cards, crafts and Bingo, they pay special attention to changing their larger activities based on the season. For example, in spring they go to the race track and in fall they visit an apple orchard. A favorite pastime is bean bag baseball, which is a combination of bags and baseball. They even have a team that plays others teams in surrounding communities, so it has built a lot of comradery through this activity.
