Aurora is a dynamic and explorable city just 35 miles from Chicago.

Jennings Terrace does not have memory care or Alzheimer unit. They have a nursing care unit that provides substandard care at best. It wasn't always this way. Any of the actual professional nursing staff or actual Certified Nursing Assistants do not last very long before being fired or pushed out the door because they are verbal about the unjust treatment and questionable illegal treatment of residents. Management, executive director, and her neighbor and best friend are not held accountable to any one. Rules and protocals are put into place when it serves the two women in charge. Don't question them or you'll be the next one out the door. Many have tried to contact the board of directors concerning many issues that are unfair and unjust however the board of directors is kept a secret from the Residence and the residence families. Two out of the four 5 star ratings Jennings Terrace has received are from two women who are part of the office staff and were most likely coerced into providing those ratings. They are two very fine ladies who want to keep their jobs. My mother has been a resident at Jennings Terrace for many years. The last three, under the current regime have not been easy for any of the residents or for the staff that really does provide exceptional care.
What is promised during the tour is greatly exaggerated and not at all what the facility offers. The pricing is low however you get what you pay for, very small rooms with shared toilet and community shower. The food is substandard and the residents rarely get fresh fruit or vegetables, mostly canned. No activities offered during the evening. Mice infestations common, as well as bugs. Residents cannot control room temp so they are always too hot or cold. No computer room, very limited "gym" with one treadmill and 2 bikes, some free weights. 2 "outtings" per month, usually to Walmart. When touring look at the residents sitting in the lobby; you can tell a lot about how happy they are there by their expressions alone.
it Feels like a caring place. It does not feel like a business.
Clearly a facility that has been around a long time. The rooms are small with a shared toilet. A shower is down the hallway and was a turnoff for me along with the whole nursing home feel. Maybe a good fit for someone but not for my mom.
So far, my loved one seems to be doing okay at Jennings Terrace. The people there are nice, and he has been involved with a radio broadcast group to comes to the community. He is very interested in drama and acting, so this gives him a chance to enjoy this hobby with others. My only concern is that I think the rooms are very small. There is barely enough room for standard furniture like a twin bed and dresser. However, he seems very content there.
Jennings Terrace was a very nice and clean community that we toured. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We chose another community because we were looking for a community with independent options.
My brother is in the nursing care side of the community. The staff are professional and friendly. He gets suitable meals. The are getting him involved with exercises and book reading. They are communicating with me very good. It is close to me and it is something that can fit in our budget.
We toured this community when looking for my grandmother and we liked it very much. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We didn't choose this community because we thought she would be more comfortable in another community we toured. The first impression was great here!
Jennings Terrace has various meal plans to accommodate their residents. The person that took me on tour was attentive and took me to see the bedrooms, dinning room, and activities center. I liked the set up of the rooms and the community. Unfortunately, this place didn't' work out for us the location wasn't very close.
