Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in Chicago may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Chicago care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Chicago, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Assisted Living facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Lower West Side, Near South Side and Mckinley Park.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Hammond, Western Springs and Addison.

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.
