Assisted Living Reviews for Clarendale of Mokena

I visited this facility

GHThis is a great location next to local conveniences, and has beautiful grounds. I’ve toured several other places but the people here seemed happier. For the price, it’s consistent with almost anything that offers similar amenities.

Clarendale of Mokena is very nice and upscale-looking, but very expensive. They have exercises, parties, tours, and all the regular stuff that senior communities have. I have eaten there once and it was fine, but my mom complains that the soup is salty. She loves soup, but they don't ever make home-made soup. The only complaint we have about the place is that the staffing turnover is ridiculous. They never have the same nurse for more than a month at a time, because they don't pay them enough. Her room was very nice, she liked it a lot, but we had to get her out of there because she couldn't afford it.

I love Clarendale of Mokena. I wish I could live there. It's on the top of the list. It is fairly new, smells nice, and in a beautiful area. The rooms are gorgeous. You don't have to go out for anything. They showed me an exercise room, which was nice. There's the beauty shop and the salon. If I could afford to live there, that's where I would be.

The staff has given our family such peace of mind. We know our mother is in good hands. This is a TOP NOTCH facility. The care team members are caring, kind, and energetic. Every staff member we have met has been kind, thoughtful and empathetic to any needs or concerns we may have. Our Mom actually loves it here. She is now social. She often participates in the daily activities. She looks forward to going on bus trips. The care here could not possibly be better. We are confident that Clarendale of Mokena is providing the best care and service to our mother.

I liked Clarendale of Mokena. It's clean and it looked like a hotel, but it was very warm looking. The staff was very friendly. Everybody looked happy. The grounds were very clean and very pretty. I only went into a studio. It was small, but bright and very clean.

My mother is a resident at Clarendale of Mokena. We are very happy with this facility. It is well organized, the staff is great, food is great, lots of activities, nurses on each floor, and very clean and new. I am comforted by the fact that my mother is well cared for and the quality of her later years has greatly improved since she is living at Clarendale. I would highly recommend this facility.

I visited this facility

We went to Clarendale of Mokena, and it was too big for my 95-year-old mother to go around. We were not able to look at the rooms, and the price was really high for her. It was not suitable for her. The place was very nice and clean.
