Independent Living Reviews for Park Place of Elmhurst

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My parents live in the Independent Living side of Park Place and it has been a great move for them. They love it there! They rave about how good the food is and how well they have been cared for- especially since the Pandemic started. Park Place has really gone above and beyond to keep them safe and still provide them with appropriate activities and entertainment. They cannot wait until they can start socializing and dining with all of the good friends they have made there since moving in! My mom loves to play group games several times a week and my dad enjoys the men's group he is part of. They have a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with a great full kitchen. Someone comes in weekly to clean their apartment and change their sheets. The few times my dad has needed a little extra help, they provide it for him. It could not be more perfect for them. The staff is super friendly too! When our kids were younger they loved visiting grandma and grandpa and swim in their pool!

Absolutely amazing! I am referring to Chef Pearse for the fantastic job he did with our special Hope and Joy Holiday Luncheon. I anticipated receiving a couple of the hors 'd oeuvres and a couple of desserts. Instead Chef had arranged these beautiful platters with fried shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, shredded beef quesadillas, pear brie phyllo and glazed meatballs. We also had a antipasto salad with cured meats and cheese. The dessert bar was equally fantastic. All of these items were delivered to our apartments. Thank you! Thank you Chef Pearse for a fantastic treat.

over a year ago as she is a fiercely independent woman. Let me say, my concerns have disappeared! Upon her arrival, my mother was warmly received! Since then, her life there has been stimulating and well-supported. Residents and staff alike respect the woman she is and love her for it! She continually reminds us of how grateful she is to be there. The staff could not be more attentive! They know everybody by name and all are greeted warmly. No interruption is too much, and they each happily become her guide on the side as she navigates her way around her new life. Many in our family are sad because of what the current restrictions that the pandemic has required of Park Place. However, she is thankful that if she is to be kept safe - this is exactly where she would want it to be. She is also charmed by the all the fun little details done to keep their spirits up. As her daughter, I am so grateful and recommend Park Place to any who are considering this step in life!

Park Place of Elmhurst is an excellent place and has everything. Mike took me all over the place and showed me everything, and he was extremely helpful. When I came home I was full of information. They have dinner every night -- which sounds very nice -- and you can have breakfast, supper, and dinner however you want, which is included in the monthly fee. It's very nice. They have lots of activities and it just seems like a perfect place. There is a committee that was knitting squares to put together for lap blankets for the people in assisted living, which is a really nice thing to do. They have a nice library with computer access. Everybody was friendly and helpful.

Provider Response

I love Park Place of Elmhurst, but I still think I'm too young to move there. Everything was fine. It's five minutes away from my house. The rooms were fine. I like the layout of the place. I found out that a couple of my friends live there. The staff was very nice and very helpful.

Provider Response

Thanks for coming to see us! The right time to make the transition to community living is different for everyone. When you're ready, we hope you'll keep us in mind. Until then, please let us know if we can provide any other information, or we'll see you next time you stop by to visit with friends.

My parents live at Park Place and I am so glad they do. I love that Park Place offers levels of care. My parents live in independent living but if one of them needs nursing care--which has happened several times for my mom--she can be careed for in another part of the community by expert nursing staff. She does not stay in their apartment when that happens, but she is only a short walk away. The proximity is huge for us as a family, becuase my father no longer drives. He can walk to see my mom every day. The staff are very professional and caring. The fellow residents are amazing and the leadership really cares about the well being of everyone who lives there. Highly reccomended.

Park Place is a very nice and lovely facility facility. It's a wonderful place to go but I can't go there because of the cost. It's extremely expensive to live there. I would recommend this place if they can afford it.

Parkplace is gorgeous. It's brand new and top of the line. The staff are eager and willing to help to go above and beyond any one that walks through the door. They are there to meet you whether you're just looking or for whatever reason you're in the building. They're just starting out, but they're fantastic. There are lots of different variations of apartment that you can get. The place is very modern with all stainless steel appliances and granite countertop. You would want to live there.

Everything from music to baking to art projects is done in our memory support unit. In addition, we engage residents using memory boxes to learn more about them and about their past.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

Residents are currently assessed by both their primary physician and our clinical director. This assessment is completed at least once a year for all residents, or as needed if there is a change in resident condition. We also have several physicians who regularly consult and see residents here at Park Place who can assist with this process.

What techniques does Park Place of Elmhurst use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

Two main options are offered at every meal. If a resident is unsure or cannot decide, we will order both. We’ll serve the resident one option; if they eat it, we will make a note of that preference. (We have a diet card for every resident.) If the resident rejects the first option, we will serve the other option and note the response. If the resident does not eat either one, we will try something from the Everyday Menu. Learning food preferences is something families can help us with, so please feel free to give us any pointers you have!

The residents who live within our community get priority in consideration for these services.
