    We liked this community when we toured it. The people we met were nice and the community looked clean. This community was just a little farther away then what we were looking for. I would recommend taking a look at it.

  • Couldn't Be Happier!!

    I highly recommend the Grand Victorian of Sycamore to a friend because it is an amazing place to live in. The staff is wonderful. The community is maintained very clean at all times and anytime I have an issue in my room that needs to be fixed, they are quick to respond, tom the head of maintenance is great. They told me that soon they will be putting new carpet in all of the rooms which is wonderful. The meals are good, could be better. My favorite part of the meals is breakfast, they let us order whatever we want. The community offers a variety of activities such as crafts, bowling on the Wii, and a pool table in the activity room. They also have a library which is a great addition. The room I am in is a good size, I have my own bathroom that is handy cap accessible, my own fridge, plenty of cupboards and my own coffee maker. I am very happy living in this community.

  • Very good supportive living facility.

    This facility is very well maintained. The facilities are attractive and the faculty there are friendly. In my opnion this facility is more of an independent living facility. when fulll ther are only about CNA per 25 residents. If you have a loved one that needs a lot of care I would not recemend the GV. Again the VG is god at what it is designed to do. Be sure of the level of care needed and then visit the GV.
