Friendly, helpful staff; vibrant and varied residents; ideal location

As long term residents of Oak Park, Brookdale stood out as an attractive retirement facility because of its downtown location with its varied stores, restaurants and cinema, and proximity to the main Post Office and Library, and to two attractive Village parks. Then, unexpectedly, we actually needed to sell our home of 53 years and put our "some day" thoughts to the test. Happily, Brookdale proved to offer even more than we recognized, including a very friendly and helpful staff, a stunning two bedroom, two bath apartment, and, of equal importance, a welcoming community of vibrant, varied and fascinating residents.

Experience at Brookdale OP

We enjoy the friendliness of residents, and have made good friends quickly. The food is good and the choices are adequate. There are many activities for residents, including games, lectures, discussions, and conversations. Brookdale OP is located in a residential area with a wooded park, shopping and theater nearby.

Brookdale Oak Park it feels like home

As residents of independent living at Brookdale Oak Park for the past year and a half, we are delighted with our choice to move here. It is a friendly and welcoming community with a wide range of activities. There’s something of interest for everyone and friendships are easy to form. Staff is helpful and available. The location in downtown Oak Park is ideal. Stores, restaurants, the library, post office, banks, pharmacies, parks, Frank Lloyd Wright houses and more are all within walking distance.

Great Community

My experience has been excellent. The community of people is what makes this a good living experience. The down side is the Strong Hold of corporate. Food choices; not allowing hiring or contracting with excellent community resources; asking staff to perform tasks way outside of their expertise are just some examples.

In the heart of everything

This Brookdale is located on the edge of the heart of downtown Oak Park. Across the street to the north are beautiful neighborhoods. Dentist is less than a block. Doctor is 1 1/2 blocks. Restaurants just around the corner. Barber just around the corner. Trader Joe's literally next Door. Dinner is the social highlight of the day for us. There are many activities for those inclined. I love the great library run by the residents. The view from our apartment is spectacular. A wonderful forest preserve with walking trails is about a mile away. We sometimes meet deer on our neighborhood walks.

Living at Brookdale

My Brookdale experience has been good. It was not easy to make the change after living independently for seven years after the death of my husband. A fall forced me to make the decision to leave my condo after 58 years living in Cadillac Michigan. It was a good choice since my daughter and family live near by but there are other reasons as well. There are many activities to choose from and I have a comfortable apartment when I want to be alone. The meals are good and my apartment is cleaned weekly. There are many businesses within walking distance and transportation can be arranged when needed. The nicest thing about Brookdale is the friendly people who live here and how welcoming they are. The staff is also friendly and helpful. My adjustment to a new living situation has been easier than I anticipated.

Great for Independent Seniors!

The food is very good--with many choices especially for dinner. Breakfast is also served with a varied menu. There are many social and learning and exercise opportunities daily. The staff is excellent and will even help with technical questions as about one's computer. There are some assisted living floors if one can no longer be in independent living

My life here is comfortable

This place is very well run. The staff is very helpful, and the food is excellent. My apartment is very comfortable. Unlike a house owner I am confident that any problem will be quickly addressed. I have ani the floor apartment, and the view is very pleasant. Right now I enjoy all the fall foliage.

Tour experience

We had a great tour experience with Brookdale Oak Park. It looks sophisticated and there seemed to be a lot of community engagement. The staff were really interested in my loved ones life and interests as well and we really appreciated that. The facility was a little bit older and they did not have any staged rooms that we could look at. The room we were shown was empty so it was kind of hard to picture what life would look like. They also did not have memory care here so individuals cannot age in place if that type of care is needed.

Would Recommend

The staff are very friendly. The location truly couldn't be better. It's right in the middle of downtown Oak Park, with close proximity to restaurants, movie theaters, and hospitals. I think they offer great activities and are opening up more and more after Covid restrictions. We've been very pleased. It's a very reasonable price for what we're getting.

Our tour experience

Brookdale Oak Park looked really nice. And the gentleman who did the tour was very informative. There wasn't any particular reason why we didn't chose here, except it just wasn’t quite as new as another place that we saw. But it looked like a very nice place.
