2 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 Berwyn, Broadview or Burbank.

Robin's Nest II in Geneva, IL

Robin's Nest is very nice and homey. Our Aunt was only there a short time before she died, but she enjoyed being there and they provided her with an abundance of attention. The staff and Dr. Robin Ross are very attentive and caring and I feel it is a wonderful place for assisted living.

The Neighbors Next Door - Gerten 1 in Aurora, IL

They were wonderful! I loved them!!! I absolutely loved them!! I looked at so many assisted living and other group homes and this was the best by far. They were residential ranch houses in a residential neighborhood. Small, private, intimate, the attention to detail and the attention to compassionate care was exemplary. They had four residential ranch homes. The caregiver, Tina, and the owner, Mrs. White, took a special love for my mother. They called her the little doll. She was their princess. They took such excellent care of her. My mother loved her caregiver, Tina, so much that they would come and do my mom's nails every week. My mom called Tina her best friend. She wouldn't have her nails done until they would do Tina's nails. She would spray Tina with her expensive perfume. She loved her like her best friend. Maximum 5 residents, the house was so clean and all the residents were so well cared for. I could never say enough accolades about how great they are.

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.
