Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Kankakee, IL
Sunrise of Flossmoor
3.9

The good thing about Sunrise is that it is not as large as some other communities we looked at, it is easier for the residents to navigate around the place. They have onsite nursing staff 24 hours a day. It is s very secure community cannot get in and out without being let in and they have done a great job sanitizing everything during the covid pandemic. The food is not as good as it could be, but we understand everyone is struggling to get food and keep consistent staffing.

Asbury of Kankakee Supportive Living & Memory Care
5.0

I was looking for a place for my uncle. I was referred to Asbury from his doctor. [Name removed] called me right away after I left a message there and met with me that evening. My wife and I took a tour of the place and decided on it right away. [Name removed] and the team there were very helpful and made this whole process very easy.

The Cottages of New Lenox
3.8

We chose The Cottages because of the convenient location. It is 5 smaller building instead of just one large facility, so sometimes your family members do not have any interaction with the other residents. They have been excellent with communication with everything that has been going on. They have had a new chef and he is not as good as the last one that they had. Overall I would recommend to others looking.
