I didn't like Alden Courts of Des Plaines. I didn't think it was for my mom. It had too much of that nursing home feel. The staff were friendly, but the people mostly were sitting around, and they had no interaction with each other.
Alden Courts of Des Plaines is located on the same campus as the Alden of Des Plaines nursing home and Alden Gardens assisted living. Alden Courts is dementia specific assisted living providing care to elderly persons with Alzheimer's and related dementia. Alden Courts occupies its own separate building and entrance but that shares the same parking lot with the nursing home and the Gardens assisted living. It generally has distinct staffing from Alden Gardens though it does share the same nurse at times. This Alden campus is located in a safe suburban area on the northern edge of the business district. While the Golf Road location makes it next to impossible to go for a walk off campus, the Courts does provide a nice enclosed, secure patio area for residents to use which is nicely set up with seating areas and seasonal plantings when weather permits. The common areas are pleasant, with nicely appointed dining room and activity area. The rooms are studio apartment style and are smaller than some other assisted livings, but since the focus is on activities and interactions to keep residents stimulated, more time is typically spent outside of the residents' rooms. This is a smaller assisted living in terms of number of residents, so it is able to provide personalized attention and staff are able to get to know residents and families. The food is average to above average with most meals tasty and appealing. The staff seems to have a less than average rate of turnover, and all are typically kind and professional, providing compassionate care.
