Great experience
I would let others know that there are professional staff members throughout the facility. The Director [name removed] has been very helpful in assisting with the initial application, and later on with Medicaid applications as well. This facility is in a great location too! There do not seem to be many activities provided to the residents. I would definitely recommend Victory Centre of River Woods, I have also recommended them via other online surveys as well.

Quality care
They were so accommodating and helped us get in here fast. My friend is getting great care and attention from the staff. He raves about the food, it is a posted a menu each week. The assistant director [name removed] bent over backwards to help us with our needs and was there every step of the way. They are not just sitting back, they are very involved and helpful with anything you may need. The medical staff have been great and are super responsive and on top of things as well. I would definitely recommend Victory Centre of River Woods.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Illinois regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Illinois regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Victory Centre of River Woods

Victory Centre of River Woods offers Studio, Semi-Private and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Victory Centre of River Woods 8 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
