I visited this facility
While searching for a place for my great aunt to live, we visited the Senior Suites of Bridgeport. Because it is located in an easy to get to area of Chicago - it would be very convenient for the family.
We liked the well-kept park setting because the outdoors has always been a big part of her life. The spacious grounds were well kept, with plenty of nice seating areas for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Indoor areas were all homey, with a nice library area and a large room for other activities, like board games and different kinds of socializing. There were other areas where residents may read, sit with friends or just relax. The film collection looked interesting - and they regularly go to local movie houses - sometimes venturing into the city to see foreign and independent films, which are our aunt's favorites.
A variety of fresh, healthy foods were offered to suit all dietary needs. Snacks were available all day every day. The dining room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated.
The private rooms were all filled with light, fresh air, nicely sized and decorated. The staff and management were very accommodating and eager to make the residents and visiting families comfortable.
Those who were not ambulatory seemed well-cared for. There were indoor exercise classes offered and machines available with instruction. Weather permitting, the seniors are taken on field trips in and around the city. Chicago has a great deal to offer, particularly in summer, when the residents can enjoy festivals and fairs every week. Throughout the year, there were also plentiful indoor events scheduled, both inside and outside of the facility.
Most of the seniors seemed very active - which will suit our aunt well. Our aunt is very sociable and the types of cultural outings and events offered suit her well.
The facility encourages family members to visit regularly and participate in some of the annual activities, such as barbeques and holiday parties.
This is a very cozy environment meant to give the residents a sense of home, with the care they require.
