I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
Oak Trace in Downers Grove is a wonderful place that has enriched my mother's life experience. She lived in the Independent Living apartments for 6 years. During that time she participated in multiple activities ranging from Bible studies, craft groups, music activities, and fun social and exercise activities. She also took advantage of their numerous activities outside the facilities. We found the staff to be receptive to residents needs and they worked hard to provide a positive environment. As my mothers needs for assistance increased she recently moved to the Health Center within the facility. The entire staff has been supportive and sincerely care for the residents. They made the transition between the levels a smooth move for my mother connecting her with fellow residents and staff members. They keep a watchful, yet not overbearing, eye on the residents which has been most reassuring. The exercise and social activities are fulfilling and enriching. My mother is happy and connected to others in the Health Center. Lore, the nurse manager, is supportive and truly dedicated to the residents. She is in tune with each resident and always available for family questions and concerns. She has excellent working relationships with the doctors on staff which has been very helpful and reassuring. I highly recommend Oak Trace for providing a full enjoyable life experience.

I visited this facility
This facility is very accommodating and always keeps up with the residents' needs. It is situated in the middle of a group of homes which compose a retirement community. I volunteered in this facility over a four month period. Those in need of assisted living stay inside the facility itself. The environment is very beautiful and pleasant, especially on a sunny day. Part of this facility is dedicated to rehabilitation and also serves as a hospital. Those checked into this area are generally very satisfied with their experience. Activities are always available for residents, whether they be movies, group outings, or games. There is also a program called "It's Not Too Late", which is a computer which is easy to use and offers a way for residents to get online and keep in touch with friends and relatives. As a volunteer, I worked with the Activities Department, and some of the tasks I performed were technical jobs, for example fixing the VCR and TV, and also providing snacks to the residents. I also categorized the extensive collection of videos that the department possessed, making the transition from a paper catalog to a digital one.
