I visited this facility
The facilities seemed extremely clean when I visited the property about a year ago. Everyone seemed relatively friendly there and the residents seemed to enjoy the overall experience of the place. Everyone was very professional as they were there to help those who couldn't live by themselves. Being in Chicago, the exterior wasn't the best I wish it could have been more scenic with more nature but thats understandable due to location. The visit was a good one and I will always keep the facility in my mind in the future. There was something very memorable about it which I could probably attribute to the wonderful residents of Kenwood. There were many programs for the people and they seemed friendly in inviting anyone to join along and help out in whatever way they could.

THIS LOCATION WAS VERY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PLACES, I HAVE BEEN. THE STAFF WASN'T FRIENDLY, THE BUILDINGS CLEANLINESS WAS NOT GREAT, I FELT THAT MY AUNTS SPIRIT WAS VERY LOW AND SHE WASN'T ATTENDED TO AS OFTEN AS THEY SAID THEY WOULD. WE WERE THERE FOR FIVE HOURS AND HAD TO ASK ABOUT DIFFERENT ISSUES, CONCERNING MY FRIENDS AUNT. THE WORKER HAD A VERY NASTY ATTITUDE. I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND A PLACE LIKE THIS. IF I COULD HAVE TAKEN MY FRIENDS AUNT HOME, I WOULD HAVE. AN INSPECTION, NEEDS TO BE DONE, BEFORE LOVED ONES ARE PLACED IN THESE PLACES.THE SECON VISIT, DIDN'T CHANGE AFTER WE HAD COMPLAINED TO MANAGEMENT, SO FINALLY, MY FRIENDS FAMILT DECIDED TO TAKE HER OUT OF THIS PLACE AND TAKE CARE OF HER THEMSELVES, ROTATING DUTIES. MY FRIENDS AUNT IS IN MUCH BETTER SPIRITS THESE DAYS AND IS RECEIVING THE NEEDED ATTENTION DESERVED AND DUE TO HER. THERFORE, BEHAVIOR IS EVERTHING WHEN GOING TO THESE PLACES. IF THE PERSON LIVING THERE IS HAPPY, SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
The people and residents at The Kenwood seem extremely pleased with their lives. The elderly have a variety of activities that seem to keep them busy and entertained as well as alone time for those assisted residents who prefer to keep as much of their independence as they can. I have never heard a negative thing from the workers i know there or the few residents i occasionally assist. It is an all around fun place to visit and i would imagine its a great place to live. The building itself is also beautifully designed, kept clean and warm in the winter and cold in the summer. The rooms and apartments are wonderful sized. Everyone seems to be well taken care of and equally independent. The Kenwood is a WONDERFUL establishment.

We visited The Kenwood of Lake View on Chicagoâ€˜s north side as a possible place for our 90-year old grandmother to live. She used to live in the suburbs, but we wanted to find somewhere closer into the city so that we could visit her regularly. Since the Kenwood is right near Lincoln Park, it is very easy to get to from anywhere in the city. We also liked that it has easy access to Lake Michigan. Lincoln Park is well known in the Chicago area as a really nice residential community, which is also a plus. This location also makes it easy for them to arrange outings to the many shopping, restaurant and other activities in the area. Food is offered menu style and all of the choices looked really appetizing. They have an on-site wellness clinic which is great since our grandmother has some health issues. She loves to get out as much as she can, but is not as ambulatory as she used to be, so the group social events will be important to her. Our grandmother really enjoyed the cafÃ© and garden terraces and the overall peaceful atmosphere at The Kenwood.
