Our family had an in person tour and we really liked the place, and our loved one really loved the balconies off the apartments. However, they did not have accessible showers which is something our loved one needed. Since they weren't able to accommodate that, we moved to another facility, but other than that everyone was very friendly and nice. The community felt very cozy.

Located 30 miles outside of Chicago, Elgin is a midwest riverboat town just a stone’s throw outside of Chicago. The city even has its own riverboat casino, The Grand Victoria Casino, where patrons can eat, play slots, or try their hand at black jack or Texas hold ‘em. It was because of this casino that Elgin had an economic renaissance. Many businesses have capitalized on this, opening swanky clubs and bars that cater to the riverboat’s patrons.

The city is also a hub of classical and choral music, boasting a number of successful ensembles including the Elgin Symphony Orchestra, the Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra, the Elgin Master Chorale, and the Elgin Children’s Chorus. These groups often play outdoor concerts at the Wing Park Bandshell during the summer months. There are also a number of theater companies in the city that put on performances throughout the year. These include Janus Theatre Company, Elgin Theatre Company, the Independent Players, Children’s Theatre of Elgin, Fox Valley Youth Theatre, and Nothing Special Productions. Many of these performances are held at the Hemmens Cultural Center and the Elgin Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Center.

For those who are more interested in outdoor recreation, the city is home to a number of parks, including two that are over 100 acres. The 112-acre Lords Park includes the Elgin Public Museum and a small zoo with a herd of American bison. The 121-acre Wing Park has a golf course and an outdoor swimming pool.
