3 Residential Care Homes near Chicago, IL

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

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 Residential Care Home facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Park Manor, South Shore and North Park.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Cicero, Evanston or Stickney.

Home Sweet Home Arlington Heights
5.0

Home Sweet Home has been wonderful and we have had no complaints. We chose this facility because it was more one on one care, there are only 8 ladies in here so it is more of a homey setting. It is a very large ranch-style home and the room sizes are great, but they don't want them in their rooms. They have a beautiful outdoor garden setting as well as a path for exercise. I would absolutely recommend.

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 are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10.

  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
