Customer Reviews

Great place!

I did not go with my mother when she toured this community but based on the paperwork and what she told me this would have been my favorite. I liked what they had to offer. The reason she went with another community was location.

I liked this community!!

They offer transportation within a 5 mile radius and they do not charge for this service. I liked this community but it was not what we were looking for. It did not offer the same amenities as the community we chose. It was a nice tour and the staff we met were nice.

Seems wonderful also; my favorite so far..

Wonderful Independent Living Community

My mother moved in last year and loves it! The facilities are immaculately clean and she has a very nice one bedroom apartment. Weekly cleaning is included in the monthly fee and they do a great job. She loves the food and dinner is an event every evening with upscale restaurant-style service, white table cloths and a very large variety of options. My mother also enjoys the wide variety of activities and transportation options. She's so busy now with a thriving social life and many new friends. I've met many residents and staff since she moved in and everyone is incredibly nice and helpful. They seem to genuinely value feedback from residents and do a great job at keeping them informed. My mom has told me that the other residents love it there as much as she does and many have lived there since it opened 10 or 11 years ago. It's such a nice community and the location next to The Glen can't be beat. I don't think we could have picked a better place for my mom!

Happy with Choice

We are happy that our parents chose the Chestnut Square. The residents and staff are very nice. It's clean and nicely decorated for the fall and Holiday seasons. The quality of the food is very good and there is a nice selection daily. Sunday Brunch every other Sunday is enjoyable too. There are many programs and the facility is close to shopping, restaurants and movies. The building is part of a vibrant Glenview community and not tucked away in isolation.
