Artis Senior Living of Lakeview in Chicago, IL
4.1

The administrators are very good; however, there are a couple of the direct caregivers were complaining about the care that was needed for a friend on a specific day. The community was short staffed on this day. Most of the time they are very friendly. The community doesn't mix floors between the assisted living and memory care during COVID. There are different levels of care that is provided in the memory care unit. In my research this was the best place in Chicago, they finally got their SAGE certificate. They were willing to work with me in getting my friend into the community. There were times that they will cook for the guests and it has been pretty good. There are times that the food wasn't as good of quality as they serve to visitors. The community has let me know that they are not able to use a lot of spices in the food. Artis is very good at communicating with me in any changes in my friend's needs.

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.

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).
