I am a friend or relative of a resident
Alden Estates of Evanston was awesome. We loved it, but we couldn't afford it. It's just not affordable for the average person. My mother did rehab there three times. It wasn't overwhelming. It wasn't too large. It was very personal. The staff was just excellent. The nurses and the aides were very attentive to the people. It was more like a family atmosphere. The people were very sociable with each other. She actually developed relationships with other people that were there. The food could've been a little better. It was kind of bland. They had nice activities. The physical therapists and the occupational therapists were wonderful. If I could've afforded it, that's where she would've stayed.

I visited this facility
Alden, a corporate chain in Chicagoland, provides both short term rehab and long term care at the Alden Estates, which is located on the western edge of Evanston. The rehab program is generally well regarded in the professional community and provides skilled therapists. This is a safe residential area of the North Shore, and it is possible to leave the building and go for a quiet walk in the nearby neighborhoods. Residents and families can also enjoy relaxation time on the nicely appointed outdoor patio. The common areas indoor are considerably spacious, welcoming and upscale, more so than some of the other Alden communities and as one would anticipate for the location. The lobby is warm and inviting, and residents enjoy use of the library and ice cream parlor. The rooms are larger than average and many have large windows with views of trees or other greenery. There are a number of private rooms available as well as shared accommodations. Residents, especially in long term care private rooms, have enough space to bring in a considerable number of personal items to help make their rooms feel more home-like. The food is average to above average with most meals appearing appetizing and tasting good. There is typically some nice variety to the menu. Staff turnover is about average for this type of facility, with some notably longer term employees. Care is generally rendered in a professional, appropriate and caring fashion.
