A excellent community

It is very expensive. If money is no object then this is the place to go. The food is terrific. They have been great with the Covid -19. The units are small but they are all small everywhere. The staff is wonderful. They have a walking track and outdoor space on the 9th floor.

Beautiful Gold Coast neighborhood. Very secure but Memory care not suitable at this time. Only a shared suite. Dining area was dark and cramped. Also, very expensive and probably too much of an urban environment for my loved one. Did not tour assisted living but may be a good option fo those who don't need memory care and who want to be in the heart of the city.

Peace of Mind

My father has dementia but is still very independent minded. The Terraces at The Clare is a perfect home for him. They provide personalized care to meet his needs, a beautiful environment and delicious meals 3x/day.

We toured here, and realized this wouldn't work for our loved one. It's a buy in community, meaning that you pay a entrance fee. Also, this is a highrise building in downtown Chicago. It wasn't in a convenient location for my family, since we were looking for something in a more suburban setting.
