About the community

Resort-Style Senior Living at Its Finest

You have options for senior living in the Chicago area. But none of them look like this. We provide a resort-like environment for independent senior living and assisted living. We are known for our indoor rainforest€”at more than a football field long and six stories tall, it's one of the largest in the world. It is truly a sight to behold and a wonderful place to spend an afternoon when there is a blizzard raging outside. Tucked into the rainforest area you will also find our spa, pool, cafe and walking path.

Both elegant and comfortingly home-like, our community is designed to allow you to enjoy all the pleasures of retirement with none of the hassles of maintaining your own property and household. Amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool and spa, country store, game room with billiards, beauty salon, library and restaurant-style dining room.

We also provide a huge range of activities, and because we'll be handling all the cooking, cleaning and typical household chores, You'll have plenty of time to enjoy them. Favorite resident activities include:
Bridge club
Putting green
Happy hours
Fireside lounge
Restaurant-style dining room

Wonderful place for your parents to live

Brookdale Vernon Hills is. Wonderful senior assisted living community! Everyone who works there is caring and exceptionally helpful! My wife and I moved my in laws into Brookdale 2 weeks ago and they made. What could have been a difficult decision and experience really easy! Everyone we dealt with knew how to make my in laws comfortable and feel very welcome!

Friends at Brookdale

One of the blessings I count from this strange year is certainly Brookdale Vernon Hills- THOUGHTFUL, KIND and GENEROUS friends at Brookdale Vernon Hills! Since I am 82, disabled and live alone in a nearby suburb, I never expected to have someone I didn't know before call to ask if I would enjoy home delivered meals occasionally, a Zoom B-fit and Craft activities sessions. Each one of you- Chefs, [names removed] and all administration whom I have never met but who have instigated such community outreach, has added a light to a dark year, and I for one am very grateful! Brookdale, with it's indoor forest and gardens in a beautiful place, which I look forward to visiting again in the near future- especially to THANK my new friends!

Brookdale Staff Covid Response

The COVID-19 crisis has been a challenge to us all. Through it all, the Brookdale staff has done an outstanding job of keeping the residents as safe as possible and for taking care of their needs. They have done their best to keep us all informed of government policies, measures being taken by Brookdale to comply with those policies, etc... In addition, they have done their best to allow residents to still visit with family members. And when it was necessary to restrict visitation, they acted in a prompt manner.

Brookdale cares for its residents

My Mom and mother-in-law have been residents at Brookdale Vernon Hills for quite a few years. They are both very happy at Brookdale. They have both made friends and find the staff very kind. Though it has been trying during Covid-19, Brookdale has done everything possible to protect everyone's safety. I believe they have been very reasonable and responsible. Before Covid-19, the food was very good and plentiful. To protect the residents, Brookdale has served box meals when contact was not possible. Though, obviously, the box meals are not as good, they are planned well and are nourishing. Brookdale is doing as best as can be expected. As the son and son-in-law, I appreciate all of the reports and efforts made by Brookdale.

Overall great place for a loved one

Overall we have been very happy with Brookdale Vernon. the staff members are great, we would not ask for any better, we absolutely love them. The food was absolutely excellent before COVID, now we believe it is slightly lacking because it is now being delivered to the rooms.

Happy Resident

I have lived here for 4.5 years but who is counting! I am so happy with the staff here as they are so accommodating. I have made many friends since there is something for everyone to enjoy. You can meet people from reading in the library, exercising and playing games. My children are so happy that I am here and safe during these difficult times. Happy Resident!
