About Brookdale Des Plaines

Brookdale Des Plaines is an independent living community that also provides assisted living when residents need more care or help with daily activities. We are located close enough to Chicago to enjoy the culture and activities there, while also enjoying small town living at its finest.

We offer community amenities and services to help everyone enjoy each day to its fullest, and we can accommodate a wide range of interests and activity levels. Favorite community features and services include:

•Game room with two pool tables
•Local transportation services
•On-site banking and postal services
•On-site beauty and barber shop
•Private dining room
•Heated swimming pool
•Resident convenience store
•Resident parking
•Resident storage area
•State of the art exercise room

We have a sun-filled back porch where residents can relax with friends, enjoy the view of our gardens and watch birds flitter among the bird feeders. When the snow starts to fall, we move our fun indoors with activities such as poker, lectures, live musical entertainment, church services, evening movies, jewelry making and other activities chosen by our residents.

We Love Helping Families Find the Right Senior Care

"I have to thank you once again for your support through this process. The biggest help was understanding the levels of care available and most appropriate for my parents. The facilities you identified helped us streamline the list of possible locations within the geographic area my parents were looking for."

Kathleen O., Found Assisted Living in Shiloh, IL

Great staff that is thoughtful and compassionate. They are always there for support, or just to lend a hand. The other residents are very friendly too. The food could definitely be better, but all ... more...
