Brookdale Des Plaines
4.9

My father lived here for 2 years and I he was very happy at Brookdale Des Plaines. The staff was always helpful and would notify me if there were any concerns regarding my father. We chose Brookdale Des Plaines because it is a large facility and is located in the downtown area of Des Plaines - Which has a lot of stores and restaurants within 1 mile radius. There are lot of amenities that include a living room, dining room, activity room (pool table), library, fitness/therapy center, salon, outdoor patio, live entertainment, etc. They offer a bus that can take residents on field trips/shopping. My dad loved that he was able to socialize with other residents and staff members. I really like everything that Brookdale Des Plaines offers and I recommend it for anyone looking for a place for independent/assisted living.

They caught any illness quickly and acted to treat it. They can improve on housekeeping a bit. I picked this community because, I felt they would be better able to cope long term with my loved one and they had a high rating with the state.

Arbor Terrace Glenview

The staff is excellent and will always find the answers to your questions. They come running when they press their button and they are very accommodating. I think it is a good facility and I trust them with my parents. I would recommend to others looking.

Transportation

When it comes to transportation, the iconic “L-train” can take you all over the city of Chicago on its elevated tracks. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) operates bus routes between downtown, O’Hare International Airport, and Midway Airport, as well as north-south routes up and down the region.

Health care

In total, there are 33 hospitals that service Chicago’s emergency needs. The top hospitals in Chicago include Presence Saints Mary And Elizabeth Medical Center, Rush University Medical Center, and Presence Saint Joseph Hospital.

Senior activities

Located on the banks of Lake Michigan, the Windy City is the largest population center in the Midwest and the heart of its arts and cultural scene. Although the city might be rightfully famous for its cuisines and the Sears Tower (now Willis Tower), Chicago has much more to offer than deep-dish pizza and architecture. From the festivities of Navy Pier to the masterpieces of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Windy City has numerous cultural opportunities for the active mind. If sports are your choice for entertainment, look no further than the city’s numerous championship-winning sports teams: the Chicago Bears (NFL), the Chicago Blackhawks (NHL), the Chicago Bulls (NBA), the Chicago Cubs (MLB), and the Chicago White Sox (MLB).

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
