I am a friend or relative of a resident
I felt that the employees were hardworking individuals who were paid very little to do a thankless job. Also felt at times that more staff could've helped them out tremendously as it would with any facility. I though the residents were given the care and respect they deserved. The facility seemed well equipped with resources necessary to care for it's residents

When my grandmother died a few years ago, my family decided that it would be best if my grandfather was placed in a assisted living facility. He has trouble getting around because of bad knees, hips, etc.We looked at a few locations around our home in Glenview. The Belmont Village of Glenview was by far the best choice. It was the closest (which helped considerably), and it was a very nice facility both inside and out. The exterior of the building had a very nice manicured look. There were plenty of trees and plants and it made it seem very peaceful. It almost had the look of a nice hotel. The inside was well furnished and comfortable. It seemed like a lot of care had been put into the decorating and this made it have a very relaxing look.The best part for my grandfather was that it was quiet and their was plenty of privacy when he wanted it. The biggest concern for him was that if he moved into a facility like this that he would never have any alone time and people would always be bothering him. Just from the visit alone we knew this would not be the case. It was a good choice for our family and I'm sure it would be for plenty of others as well.

Belmont Village, a corporate chain with a few facilities in Illinois, provides a consistent and reputable product in upscale assisted living. The Glenview facility is located on a main road, geographically convenient for shopping, local hospitals, and businesses. It is located in a safe neighborhood, essentially in a business district. There is limited outdoor space and it is somewhat noisy due to the proximity to Golf Road, but residents and visitors are able to sit outdoors if they wish. The common areas in the building off nicely furnished, tastefully appointed sitting areas with varying degrees of privacy in multiple locations throughout the building, and most visitors choose to visit either in resident apartments or in one of the common areas, such as the bistro or the lobby area. The building, both the common area and the resident apartments, is always well maintained and in a neat and clean condition. Fixtures and furnishings both common areas and in resident rooms are somewhat upscale. Apartments are available in regular assisted living and also in differing dementia care programs that have the goal of being tailored to level of dementia the residents are afflicted with, so that residents are living on a care floor with others of similar functional level. Most apartments are private, single occupancy with a handful of shared or “companion” apartments available. The price points differ with the size of apartment and type of care, whether assisted living or dementia specific, the latter of which Belmont Village terms “Circle of Friends” and “Neighborhood”. However, it is noted that there is not a seemingly endless list of a-la-carte add ons at Belmont Village, so the rate one is paying is not so difficult to figure out, and not so subject to fluctuation as at some other assisted livings. The food at Belmont Village is above average in presentation, quality, and taste, and almost always there is something on the menu for nearly everyone. While there is some modest turnover in direct care staff, it is no more than usual at other similar facilities. Most often there is enough staff to meet all resident needs, and care provided is consistently kind, caring and of high quality.

Years ago, my friend and I were looking for places to volunteer at. My friend's grandmother was a resident here. We made a visit to her grandmother and decided to obtain further information. I first arrived and went into her room to talk and hang out for a bit. After that, I asked one of the staff members if they were accepting any volunteers. They were helpful and kind as to giving me the necessary information. I joined my friend, her grandmother and some of the other residents for a group activity. I had a lot of fun participating in this activity as everyone seemed upbeat and enthusiastic. I was pleasantly surprised. I never got to volunteer but I visited a few times after that. This is definitely a great facility with a great staff and residents.

This facilty has a very pleasant atmosphere. Well maintained with broad hallways and tastefully luxurious decor, the immediate and overall impression is that of a resort hotel, with a decidedly cheery and bright atmosphere.
Though the location features special "memory care" sub-dvisions, they are not necessarily isolated from other residents. More highly functional "memory-challenged" individuals are part of the main population. The individual units are fairly generous, as is to be expected for this type of facility and this price range.
The food was unremarkable, and the activity schedule seemed fairly typical as well, though the energy level seemed decidedly higher than one normally witnesses at such places.
My one caveat, and our primary reason for passing over this facility, is that while the broad hallways and numerous "wings" made for a generally pleasant environment, we saw the design as being considerably problematic for early to median Alzheimer's patients (as was our mother when we looked here) to negotiate consistently without assistance. For those who are considerably more advanced in their dementia and would therefore receive regular guidance or be restricted, or for those still capable of consistently maintaining new memories, this is most certainly an option worth considering.
