Recent reviews of Independent Living in Chicago, IL
Belmont Village Lincoln Park in Chicago, IL
5.0

The staff at Belmont have been great to work with! We have a family member who is resistant to change and unwilling to take the necessary steps. Belmont has been super helpful with the transition. I've been by once a week for the past 5 weeks and each time the interaction with staff & LPNs has been great. Their observations show me they are taking the time to learn about their new resident and provide comfort and care. The activity coordinators stop by to let their residents know when there are gatherings which help provide structure and socialization.

My Mom was in skilled nursing at St. Joseph Village of Chicago. She received excellent care (especially during the day) from her nurses, the CNAs and her doctor. If I had a question or concern, when I called her doctor, he always returned my calls within that same day. There is room for improvement with the availability of staff at night to help with patients" needs, but overall, I was pleased with both her medical and personal needs care.

Located on the banks of Lake Michigan, the Windy City is the largest population center in the Midwest and the heart of its arts and cultural scene. Although the city might be rightfully famous for its cuisines and the Sears Tower (now Willis Tower), Chicago has much more to offer than deep-dish pizza and architecture. From the festivities of Navy Pier to the masterpieces of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Windy City has numerous cultural opportunities for the active mind. If sports are your choice for entertainment, look no further than the city’s numerous championship-winning sports teams: the Chicago Bears (NFL), the Chicago Blackhawks (NHL), the Chicago Bulls (NBA), the Chicago Cubs (MLB), and the Chicago White Sox (MLB).
