Burr Ridge, Illinois Retirement Community
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Burr Ridge – and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities – has shared since 1994, when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful – a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Burr Ridge is conveniently located in the western suburbs of Chicago, on Plainfield Road, with easy access to several major highways, including I-55, I-294, I-88 and I-355, which lead in all directions to Wisconsin, Missouri and Indiana. Within close proximity are two main hospitals – Hinsdale and La Grange – equidistance from our community. In addition, we are just 25 minutes from downtown Chicago, with access to some of the city’s best shopping centers and attractions, including museums, theaters, casinos and zoos. This area is second to none in the quality and diversity of these offerings.
A Wonderful Selection
Unlike most assisted living communities, Emeritus at Burr Ridge offers both assisted living and skilled nursing care all under one roof. Our 102 assisted living studio and delux apartments, located on just two floors, each offer a refrigerator, microwave and private bathroom equipped with safety handrails, as well as an emergency call system to provide for the safety of our residents. Should they need assistance, they simply press the call button, anytime – day or night.
We are also a 30-bed Medicare-certified Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. So residents can easily remain right here at “home,” while receiving the full range of onsite therapy services required, including physical, occupational and speech therapy. For the convenience of our residents, we also have a team of physicians and other consulting specialty providers who visit our community on a regular basis. These include podiatrists, dentists, audiologists, nephrologists and psychiatrists.
Many people who visit our community tell us how well-maintained and eye-pleasing our building is. That’s due in part, to all of the large windows, perfectly manicured landscaping and welcoming front entrance that provides a lovely, tranquil spot for residents to sit and enjoy a little quiet time or visit with loved ones. Inside, we offer several welcoming common rooms – a lovely living area, dining room, exercise room, activities room and sitting room with large-screen television – providing a friendly, home-like atmosphere for residents and their families and friends. We also offer a private courtyard – truly a showcase of the superb talents of our Garden Club – that serves as gathering place. This is also where we hold cookouts throughout the summer, spring and fall months.
Our staff members are committed to providing the highest quality of care and compassion to our residents. They always greet residents with a smile – and genuine concern – and treat them just like they would their own family members. It’s this dedication to service that inspires so many of our staff, including our management, resident assistants, chefs, housekeepers and nurses, to continue working here. In fact, many staff members have been here 10-plus years; some have been here since the building opened in 1994. Such longevity underscores how much they enjoy working with residents; they are here for all the right reasons, and it truly shows! Our family is truly committed to yours!
