From the Provider
Once upon a time, Buffalo Grove was a small community of homesteaders and land speculators who wanted to establish a "good place" to live. These pioneers were not unlike the founders of Belmont Village who, following years of careful planning, established a facility that was a "good place" for assisted living. True to its roots, Belmont Village of Buffalo Grove, Illinois celebrates the vision of its founders.
Our community is located in an attractive residential suburb in northwest Chicago, convenient to numerous shopping malls, healthcare facilities and places of worship for our diverse population. In addition to walking trails on the grounds, there are nearby parks, farms, museums and the historic village of Long Grove for all to explore. Our community also benefits from very supportive families, who live and work in the area. Together with Belmont's well-trained and energetic team of professionals, a sense of kinship is created that benefits everyone in the community.

I visited this facility
I did not like Belmont Village of Buffalo Grove because the atmosphere was more like a nursing home. And also the room accommodations were all shared with other residents.
I visited this facility
This facility was new when I started coming there. It obviously had the start up business jitters but it quickly shook them off and from what I saw everything seemed on the up and up. The patients were well cared for and as opposed to the stereotype of the nursing home where no one knows anyone else and the staff are evil I saw actual care in the eyes of the nursing staff. The food staff was actually happy because the rules allowing them to talk and be themselves were there. Happy employees mean happy customers who in this case are the people living there. Assisted living means they help not do it for you and that boundary was strictly enforced in order to allow the elderly and injured the most possible independence. I would recommend this facility to any elderly or family that needs a place to feel secure and comfortable in their given environment.

I really enjoyed Belmont Village of Buffalo Grove. They have so many things that make assisted living seem fun instead of dependent. They offer many activities for their residents to participate in, and it helps them interact with others and make friends. They also offer transportation to places like stores and churches so residents aren't cooped up inside. Of course, the most reassuring is the well-trained staff and the licensed nurse who is available 24/7. The bedrooms and main room have a home-y feel and they offer medium-sized rooms and larger rooms. There is also a workout room for more fit residents. The dining room is very nice and the food looked delicious, served in restaurant style dining. Overall, every resident at Belmont Village looked happy, healthy, and well taken care of. No one was neglected, but everyone was still independent. The staff and administration were very kind and I almost applied for a job there because it looked so awesome!

My mom was diagnosed with dementia. At the time, she lived alone, and her neighbors called me with concerns for their safety. So, y mom was moved to Belmont Village, and her safety was no longer at risk. They did some things to keep the dementia residents active, but thinking about it, they could have done more. Much time was spent watching TV. However, we especially enjoyed the outdoor area that had lots of sunshine and fresh air. The food there was very good. We had many meals with all the residents, and the restaurant-like atmosphere made it seem like mom was on vacation. The holiday dinners were very nice, too. Mom had her own room, complete with her furniture, so visiting was similar to seeing her in her own apartment, which was an emotional positive on our part. There was a time when I thought mom was given too many meds, but the nurse and employees addressed the situation.

My mother moved from a two bedroom/bathroom, condominium to a studio apartment. She could have taken a larger apartment but the quickness of her move didn't give her adequate time to think things through.
Until her move, Mom was independent, drove, shopped, attended church and other activities. Although Belmont offers many activities, Mom describes them as "going to school" and she rejects a number of activities that would get her out of her room and interacting with others. She does enjoy Wednesday afternoon wine, cheese and entertainment.
Although Mom was a regular church goer, she has stopped now since she must take the Belmont bus which drops off the residents, assists them into a special place in the church that will accomodate wheelchairs and the like. Mom believes the Belmont crew "look like a spectacle." "We don't even go to the front of the church for communion," she says. " Someone brings it to us."
Mom actually does participate in many activities and most enjoys the morning "chair" exerciscs. She is with people her age and she enjoys her interactions and shared experiences. Over all, Mom is "happy to have found this place." My sister and I are also quite satisfied with Belmont Village and the care Mom is receiving.
