Recent reviews of Independent Living in Vernon Hills, 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.

Gurnee Meadows
5.0

I’m living here currently and it’s going really, really well. I’m very pleased. When I moved in, my apartment was perfect. I had new carpet and new paint and it was really a pleasure to be able to move in. I was on the waiting list for a few months but they were able to give me exactly what I wanted, including my own parking space in the underground garage. The staff is very helpful. The only issue I ever see is that maybe someone forgets to vacuum the elevator because it’s a high traffic area but the community room and the lobby is just beautiful and they decorate for every holiday. It makes you feel like you’re living in a house because of the decorating. They don’t serve food but they provide small full-sized kitchens in the apartments. They provide plenty of activities like bingo, card games, there’s a movie every Friday night, and they have special dinner events about once a month. The other residents so far have been very friendly and very welcoming. They’ve met all of my needs and expectations and I would recommend them.

Addolorata Villa in Wheeling, IL
4.8

We choose Addollorata Villa because it offered our Mom a continuum of care we believed was best. We have seen firsthand the Addolorata staff show extreme compassion to their patients and residents. They have been extremely attentive to our mother's needs and kept our family updated along the way. The spiritual environment is a comfort for her and our family. We highly recommend the community of Addolorata Villa.
