I am a friend or relative of a resident

I do have my wife in Arden Courts. Why did I pick this place? Partly because of all information I received from it and the feedback I got from other people who used it, saying they were very pleased with it, so I thought that it was a very good place. The staff is very good. We're really happy with the staff. They are very caring and very concerned. They're very good. My wife is really well cared for. Food is very adequate. It is very good. They do a lot of games. They have programs. They bringing people in for concerts. They do different kinds of word games as well as bean toss and a number of other kinds of games. They have music and movement kinds of things. They do walking. There is a variety of activities. What I like best about this place? I think it is the personality and the care that my wife receives there. She seems very content. I would recommend Arden Courts, certainly!

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is in Arden Courts. I think it is a very well kept facility. She has been there since October 1st. They're excellent. There are wonderful people working there. The staff is extremely caring. They do their very best to keep residents entertained and interactive with other people, which is important for someone like my mom who has dementia.

I visited this facility

We visited the Arden Courts facility as a possibility for our great aunt to live in. We were immediately struck by the charming way that the structure was designed. It really seems like a country inn that you might find on a lane outside of the city. Yet, it is convenient to Chicago as a suburb. Our great aunt has early on-set Alzheimer's so we were impressed that the facility seems to bear in mind that some of its residents may have that challenge. Its secure location is pleasant and easy to navigate. The staff does regular rounds all around the grounds to ensure the safety of the residents. This is very important to us. The food we sampled was acceptable, but nothing really stood out. Having been spoiled at a number of city located facilities that mirror 4 and 5 star restaurants, we could see that the type of meal that Arden Courts provides would most likely never approach those other places. There was nothing bad about the food; it was simply not extraordinary in any way. There is an adequate variety of activities, however, if someone really needs a lot of stimulation such as what you might find in the city, this place would not suit their needs. But for someone looking more toward quality and level of care, Arden Courts would certainly fit the bill. We are still making our decision, and because of the high level of care, it is on our list to consider. At this stage, we are evaluating the level of our great-aunt's dementia, to determine if she needs this level of care at point this time.

Visited this facility

When our mother's Alzheimer's had advanced to the point that continuous supervision on some level was becoming less of an option and more of a necessity, Arden Courts of Northbrook was one of the first places we looked. While it was a most inviting facility, it was not appropriate to our mother's level of dementia at the time. However, that is not to say that, now, having seen what works best for patients with memory issues, Arden Courts is not an ideal facility for persons whose memory problems are increasingly pronounced. This facility has a distinct charm, reminiscent of a small country hotel, though readily accessible to Chicago's Northwest Suburbs. It is sufficiently set back from the road, and comfortably nestled into a wooded area that allows for a picturesque yet secure walking path. Small courtyards between the projecting "wings" are secure, intimate, unintimidating, and pleasant. The entire layout, in fact, is clearly designed to accommodate those with memory issues. A broad ( and secured) central "loop" serves the distinctly-themed and color-coded residential wings. These halls are broad enough to be airy but designed so as to convey a notable degree of warmth frequently lacking in similar or larger facilities. In general, the atmosphere is comforting, with tasteful, home-like furnishings and comfortable communal areas. Knowing what I now know about memory care, I can easily see how the facility's design can go a long way to comforting those for whom confusion has become a regular part of their daily existence. Certain aspects of this location, though certainly adequate, are not particularly impressive. By this I refer to the food, which seems to be conventional in most respects, and the rooms, which would not be likely to be described as spacious. In Arden Court's defense, a central component of their "activity" program is to encourage interaction with others and, accordingly, to discourage residents from remaining isolated in their rooms. This, I have found, is a feature common to all memory-care-specific facilities, especially the smaller ones such as this. The amenities and features are typical of smaller assisted-living facilities, and it is unreasonable, not to mention unnecessary, to expect extravagance in a residence such as this. At this level, it is the consistency and quality of care from the staff that should be the most important consideration. Though Arden Courts is defintely far too restrictive for those in the earlier stages of dementia (or those merely experiencing a physical disability), it is a well-run facility that is worthy of consideration for anyone experiencing dementia that has progressed beyond the initial stages.
