Why choose Orchard Estates senior apartments? Because it just feels right.
If you ask our tenants how they felt about leaving the “independence” of their houses, they smile. Some even laugh. It’s a bit of a joke here. Every one of them had a good reason to move to senior housing, but most thought they’d be unhappy. That is, until they settled into our comfortable, worry-free apartments, designed for people 55 and older. Here’s what they tell us now:
A safe and lively haven, with loads of extras
There are six floor plans from which to choose. Each apartment has a full-size stove and refrigerator, separate bedroom and bathroom, locks on doors, and heat and cooling control. Every room includes an emergency pull-cord, monitored 24/7 by the Long Term Care staff next door.
Monthly rent includes utilities, cable TV service, in-house activities, weekly light housekeeping, maintenance and outdoor parking.
Your phone bill is not part of your rent and will be mailed directly to you. Wireless Internet service is not included. Community dining is charged per meal.
Our apartments are all just an easy covered walk away from the community dining room, GRHS cafeteria, hospital, Long Term Care and Glencoe Clinic.
Need a bit more help? If you find you need help with daily tasks, like showering, taking medications, transportation or meal delivery, those are available for a fee. Or if you’ve been injured or ill, we can help you find the right therapy services to come to you.
