A great place for Dad.

One negative thing is that my dad had money and his drivers license stolen. The food was really good. They do not have enough elevators for a building that size. The rooms are nice, huge closets. They have large outdoor decks with garden areas. Views are great.I would recommend it to others.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Our experience with the Breakers was somewhat limited. We signed up our great aunt because we loved the look and feel of the place. Aunt lived downtown Chicago for many years so we knew she'd appreciate the city feeling. The tour was very low pressure which we appreciated. Unfortunately Aunt passed away before we actually got to move her in but they were so considerate and fair to us. I appreciated their customer service.
