Ascension Living Heritage Village in Kankakee, IL

Let me tell ya! Everyone is so nice; therapy has exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Heritage Village

Bickford of Bourbonnais

We had a crisis situation that necessitated making some quick decisions for my mother. The folks at Bickford really work with you and help to put together a plan that fits your loved one's needs. They continue to follow-up and and ask for input to assist them in making any improvements. They adjust the resident care plan as needed. They offer daily activities and fun events to keep the residents active and enjoying life. They encourage family members of Bickford residents to participate in activities and offer services to help families stay in touch. They also offer a good variety of menu choices. We are so grateful for how everything came together. Such a blessing!

Riverside Assisted Living & Memory Care, a CCRC in Kankakee, IL

1. The food is terrible to the point of occasionally serving raw chicken. We were told that they had 2-3 excellent chefs on staff. Not true. 2. They seem to have enough staff most of the time even though there is a lot of turnovers. 3. They weren't very helpful with getting the long-term care insurance to pay. 4. The price per month ended up being astronomically higher than what they led us to expect.
