I am a friend or relative of a resident

I had a cousin who lived at Seasons at Glenview Place. The facility was beautiful. The rooms were nice. My cousin was in a single bed room. Unfortunately, it was too costly.

Overall the experience was very positive. Getting my parents moved in was very easy and the staff was very friendly and trustworthy. There were no concerns about safety and both of my parents, having stayed here at different times, were very pleased with the facility and overall experience. My father actually passed away shortly after spending time here and the staff made his time there very comforting and relaxing. I'm very grateful to the staff here. Convenient location too.

I visited this facility

The Seasons at Glenview Place assisted living facility looked really well-kept from the outside as we drove up. Our aunt has lived in the Chicago region for most of her life, so she would like to stay around the area to be in touch with friends and family. We really enjoyed the beautifully landscaped, park-like grounds, which included lovely courtyards and walking paths, plus a greenhouse. The patio areas also had barbeques where they host private parties. The main foyer had a nice receiving area, like a quaint country home or bed and breakfast. The private living spaces were all a nice size and did not seem cramped. They were also beautifully decorated. We could see that our aunt could be comfortable in any of them. Each unit had individually controlled temperatures. The bathrooms were designed with safety in mind. The communal areas were all nicely designed and had interesting activities occurring, from reading to games and resident interactions. They also had an arts and crafts studio and woodworking shop, in addition to a computer center and salon for the residents. The dining areas had many restaurant style options. From more intimate to communal dining, residents can choose whatever they like - in addition to hosing guests in their own spaces. The food choices looked nutritious and delicious, as well as the regular snacks - offered continually. Events and outings scheduled include anything you can imagine - from restaurants, to art museums, the library, which our aunt particularly enjoys, to local films and crafts, fine dining and theater. They also host monthly birthday parties for residents at the facility which friends and family may participate in. This is a very nice facility with very attentive staff. All of the resident's needs appear to be met easily and efficiently, in a friendly and caring manner. It was clear that the residents really enjoyed living here in this relaxed, yet stimulating environment.
