I am a friend or relative of a resident
I have been in their alzheimer's support group for 2 years. Diane is the coordinator and her very caring and wonderfully heartfelt attitude is genuine. Everyone is super friendly and nice. I know people who live in the alzheimer's unit as well as the assisted living section. It is bright, modern, and a beautiful place to live. The residents are well cared for and the food is very good. Many programs. Of course no place is perfect, but this one is worth checking out!

Smith Village, in Chicago, Illinois is a continuous campus. Smith Village offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, Alzheimer's and Memory Support, and Skilled Nursing Care all on the same campus. I really liked the facility. The facility itself has a beautiful exterior. If you were just driving by, you would believe it to be an apartment complex and would be unaware of all the wonderful services occurring inside. Each level of care offers the residents the ability to live life as independently as possible. I liked all programming offered, but I was very impressed with the Alzheimer and Memory Care unit. The design and layout were wonderful and specifically designed to ensure safety to the residents. All clients I observed seemed happy and well cared for. I would recommend highly Smith Village for any level of care you are seeking.
Smith Village is located in the heart of chicago between the Beverly and the Morgan Park neighborhoods. It is easily accessible from the highway and train as well as the bus lines running down Western Ave. As I walked into the foyer I thought I was walking into a 5 star hotel. The furniture and the chandliers were very beautiful. I was taken on a tour of the apartments in the Assisted Living wing and was amazed at how homey they felt. The residents appeared happy and you could laughter echoing through the hallways. Next was the formal dining room where the tables where set with linen and fine china. I was invited to stay for lunch and sample their menu. The food was delicious and prepared by a chef. I would recommend Smith Village to someone who was looking for a home away from home experience for their loved ones.

The facility is first rate. It offers care at all levels in a caring, protective environment. However, it is very expensive. Plan ahead and buy long term care insurance.

We visited the Smith Village while searching for an assisted living retirement community for my friend‘s mom. We decided to take a look at the Beverly area, located on the southwest side of Chicago since my friend used to live in that area. We found that Smith Village is the only such facility in that region. It is convenient to get to, although public transport options can be limited, which could be an issue for some visitors. The one and two bedroom apartments are nicely decorated and quite spacious - more so than many we saw on the north side. The staff seemed very nice with all of the types of people who live there, from those who suffer from Alzheimer's and dementia to those with simple ambulatory issues. We visited during their annual spring planting, which we all really enjoyed. Some of the other activities they plan include fashion shows and luncheons where volunteers and visitors are welcome. At many of these events, their executive chef prepares special menu samplings which seem to rival local restaurant fare.
