  • Cold & Uncaring

    The Mather Wilmette will promise your loved one the world before they sign the lease and move-in but the reality of living there truly doesn't hold up to the sales pitch. The culture is cold and uncaring to the point where the Mather Directors walk by residents and guests without making eye contact or saying hello. If you are in the elevator with a Mather Director, it is like being a ghost. The only kind and caring humans you will find in the building are the fitness staff (included in the rent) and the outside caregivers (who are an additional cost). The residents have opportunities to make suggestions at events like the invitation-only Food Committee but the Mather is focused on one thing and one thing only, cost cutting. Keep in mind the Mather is a for-profit business and so if there is a way to reduce staff, food quality, transportation or activities, they will to save a dollar.
