Recent reviews of Independent Living in Chicago, IL
Brookdale Des Plaines
5.0

I like the food which is very tasty and nourishing. There is always something to do as far as activities from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. games, shows, computers, and conversations with other residents. I feel as you get older there are safety features such as grab bars, pendant, check-in button, etc. Brookdale Des Plaines has a podiatrist on site who is very good and thorough. It is so nice you don't have to leave the building. I recommend Brookdale Des Plaines if you are looking for a retirement community. Brookdale's philosophy likes to keep their residents life as normal as possible such as pets, pool, activities, and friendships.

They're short of help, all the way around. That's the main challenge. Sometimes it's hard to find a nurse on the nursing floor. But I really like the assisted living building. They're very good with their activities and keeping their people up to date on things. I had one relative move to the wellness center from assisted living, and I would not do that if you can avoid it. They don't have the activities, and they're kind of isolated in wellness.

We didn't really check out anywhere else. This was the most affordable and my aunt was ok with it when we visited. They have been very attentive to my aunt. They worked with me to help step up her level of care when it became necessary. The business office is a bit less responsive, but the direct care staff are very nice and helpful. She has housekeeping services and they do her laundry for her in the Assisted Living section. They went above and beyond when she was in independent living and needed more assistance with things before she moved. It's not a super fancy facility, but for the price point (which is lower than other places), I think there is definitely value. And I would recommend it at this point.

In Chicago, IL, seniors have access to local offices and organizations that may help them obtain financial assistance for senior care, including:

Transportation

When it comes to transportation, the iconic “L-train” can take you all over the city of Chicago on its elevated tracks. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) operates bus routes between downtown, O’Hare International Airport, and Midway Airport, as well as north-south routes up and down the region.

Health care

In total, there are 33 hospitals that service Chicago’s emergency needs. The top hospitals in Chicago include Presence Saints Mary And Elizabeth Medical Center, Rush University Medical Center, and Presence Saint Joseph Hospital.

Senior activities

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).

What is independent living?

Independent living offers a stress-free lifestyle for older adults. Independent living communities don’t provide personal care or supervision, but do offer generally healthy adults opportunities for socialization and hassle-free living. Independent living services often include:

  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Home maintenance and repairs
  • Social activities and outings
