Overall a great experience

Senior Suites community has great staff members, so far I have been very pleased. We used to have activities like bingo and other games but once the pandemic hit everything was shut down. It is expensive but you do get what you pay for. The community and building is nice, and the people are just great. It is a mixed group of people which i can really appreciate. I am so happy they were recommended to me.

[name removed] showed me around, there was no activity due to covid. The units he showed me were very basic, not what I had in mind for my living needs.

A community to call home

This is a nice retirement community for my mom. They do have staff that is available. The grounds are clean and she is happy with the layout in her apartment. They do not have any activities for the residents to participate. This is a nice apartment for someone to call home. We would recommend others who are looking for just a community to live in with out any personal care.

Friendly people!!

When I was searching for a place, I toured Senior Suites of Garfield Ridge. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The place was nice, but it was not as appealing as another community that I toured.

I have lived at the Garfield Senior Suites for nine years. Best decision & ever made. The staff is great. We would not get by without them. They are kind, thoughtful and extremely helpful and very hard working people. The best thing about living in a senior community is the friendships you develop. It is the best answer for loneliness.

My Husband And I Are Doing Good

The staff here are so attentive and friendly. I like how clean my community is everywhere I go. I get to take Saturday walks and get access to use the recreation stationary- bicycle. I make our own food in our spacious apartment and I like the way it's set up. I definitely would recommend this place.

Awesome experience

Maggie was my advisor and she was exceptional. She really took time to listen to our dilemma and help us find a place that my mom feels safe and comfortable and is affordable. I would recommend Senior Advisor to anyone who needs help in finding suitable resources for their seniors.

Bed bug heaven

Bed bug heaven. My 90 year old mothers apartment was infested. She lost every thing she owned including all clothing. Other seniors are dealing with this same problem. Management changes hands often and they have no sense of urgency to remedy the problem. My mother loved living there, unfortunate so do the bed bugs.

My name is Lisa Reed & I am the Vice President of Operations for the 24 Senior Suites we manage in the Chicagoland area. I would like to take this opportunity to first thank you very much for taking the time to provide your feedback related to Senior Suites of Garfield Ridge. Your negative opinion of our community in regards to our management of a bed bug situation is particularly concerning. Bed bug issues have been on an alarming rise in the Chicago area for several years now. We implemented a protocol for this years ago. Our residents have not incurred any additional charges for the pest control services to eradicate bed bugs nor have any residents who cooperate with the protocol been evicted for having bed bugs. On behalf of the company, I am sorry that you & your mother had this experience & that we were not able to resolve the concerns prior to your mother’s move.

I loved it, but not right location

This one was terrific too, I was trying my best to get my friend to move into Garfield Ridge, I loved the way it was set up, the coziness of the place. She wasn't quite sold on the location and that was her biggest problem, I live over here so that wouldn't have been a problem for me but she wanted to be somewhere that was familiar to her.

I'm so happy to say we have decided(Mom too) this is the place she'll be moving to. It's a small step from living on her own and only blocks from her old apt.We all think she will be happy here and it will be a good fit for her. The Director was also very helpful. The fact there was a move-in-special pricing helped also. We're very thankful for our Senior Living Advisor's help and persistance. Her kindness and ease of use of this online site were invaluable.
