See what residents and loved ones are saying about Clarendale of Addison
Last month we moved my mom from her home of 43 years to Clarendale of Addison. It was the best decision we ever made. I cannot say enough about how professional, caring and considerate the whole team is. From the “red carpet” welcome, to the extra attention and assistance they have provided, my mom is thriving and doing so well! She LOVES the food, playing bingo, exercise class and happy hour to name a few of the activities she is involved in. The healthcare team have gone above and beyond to help with Telehealth services. And, her apartment and entire facility is beautiful and very clean! For anyone considering making this choice for their loved one, I would highly recommend Clarendale!
I moved into Clarendale of Addison a few months ago; I should have moved sooner. The food is impressive, the people are impressive. I was nervous that there weren’t going to be other gentlemen I fit in with, but I have already made a group of friends here. I like it so much that I have already referred another one of my family members to move here. She just arrived so now we live down the hall from each other!
After a poor experience in their first independent living community, my in-laws were on the hunt for their “forever home”. After scouring the Western Suburbs for that perfect fit, they landed at Clarendale of Addison. From the moment we walked into this facility we were warmly greeted and met with nothing but patience when asking a variety of questions about life at Clarendale. We signed on the dotted line the next day and planned for an early April 2020 move in. And then, COVID. Transparently, we were panicked. We had already given 60 day move out notice at their current residence, signed a lease with Clarendale and put a deposit down with a moving company. Sensing our worry, Clarendale stepped in and assured us they would be flexible with move in date and, when move in day arrived, they had an organized and, most importantly, SAFE procedure to get my in-laws settled. Since their arrival, Clarendale has been nothing but accommodating – providing breakfast free of charge when under stay at home orders, delivering both lunch and dinner to residents, having a weekly activity in which staff go door to door with a nacho bar, happy hour, sundae bar, Hawaiian themed treats, etc., opening the gym for resident use with safety protocols in place…the list goes on and on. The food is INCREDIBLE with a rotating menu of specials and variety of options to choose from; there was an entire week that my mother-in-law lamented over Facetime to us about having to choose between steak and lobster (she couldn’t get both because “the portions are too big”). They have also been incredibly communicative with residents’ families from sharing weekly updates to having an open line of communication with Clarendale’s Executive Director. Their handling of the pandemic has been extraordinary considering the circumstances; always communicating developments and changes quickly to residents, and being proactive in imposing safety measures, including free weekly testing for all residents. Suffice it to say, my in-laws have found their “forever home”. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, Clarendale of Addison.

We moved my Father into Clarendale senior community about a month ago, we could not be more happy about our decision. He is in Independent Living and he LOVES IT, he has made quite a few friends already, and he is starting to get involved with some of the activities, the staff is second to none. They make you feel so at home. Whenever I stop by they all recognize me and my brother and know us by our first names. This Crazy time and they are doing everything to make sure everyone stays safe, we feel this is the safest place for him to be at. We are so happy that we recommended another relative of ours who is planning on moving in next month. This is our first experience with a senior complex and we are scratching our heads as to why we waited so long.

I can’t pick just one staff member that went above and beyond. The compassion and communication are amazing! At Clarendale you get the best of both worlds…great care and a beautiful place to call home.

The Clarendale of Addison is a stunningly beautiful community at an attainable price point. It is sparkling clean and well organized. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the well being of the residents is always at the heart of what they do. The apartments are modern and sophisticated. I have recommended the Clarendale to many people; once my own parents start to consider adult communities, I will recommend the Clarendale to them, as well!

My Aunt and Uncle moved into Clarendale of Addison, assisted living seven months ago and I am thrilled that they are in their care. The nurses sincerely care and are passionate about the service they do for the elderly. They keep me informed at all times, via text or phone and I can honestly sleep at night now knowing that they are safe and cared for 24/7 by a wonderful staff! The facility is new, very clean, and the others who live there are very friendly and inviting. I’ve had meals in the dining room with them several times and the food is great.
Now that we’re in the mist of Covid19, they are following through with CDC guidelines and keeping everyone safe and informed. A weekly newsletter is sent out every week to family members with updates, and keeping everyone entertained while staying safe. The staff makes special moments happen by remembering their birthdays, bringing them cake and making it memorable for them and family members. I can’t say enough good things about the entire staff and facility. Thank you Clarendale staff for your terrific care and service!

Theodore and I both love it here! He would rather be here with all the people than anywhere else. Everyone is so friendly to him and he loves the attention. I feel so lucky that Clarendale allows pets. It’s a great place to live for both of us!

There is nothing more comforting knowing that my dad is in the ABSOLUTE best hands in the Memory Care facility at Clarendale of Addison. The staff is very compassionate, attentive and treat him as if he is their own family member. They are very engaging with all the residents providing a very positive and supportive environment for them to thrive. What I love most is that they truly get to know the residents and make the resident’s experience more personal to their interests. My dad owned a restaurant and [the] staff were so creative in keeping him engaged under their supervision in activities such as cooking, baking, etc. that he used to do. He LOVED it!!! The facility is extremely clean, safe, modern yet offers a very cozy, environment that feels like home. I would HIGHLY recommend Clarendale of Addison to anyone seeking transitional care for their loved one.

Clarendale of Addison has been a great experience for my uncle. Everyone has been great very welcoming and really did make his experience easy and they took care of every step. Cynthia Miceli was so helpful and still is with anything my uncle needed and even with this COVID-19 going around she really has been very concerned for the residents and really following guidelines to make sure everyone is safe she really is professional and helpful in any questions the residents or family members have. I highly recommend Clarendale of Addison for anyone looking to put a loved one.

My husband and I arrived at Clarendale during the corona virus pandemic. We fully appreciate the care and safety provided at this senior living facility. It takes away a lot of stress for us at this time. We thoroughly enjoy the residents we have met. The workers are pleasant and always helpful. We look forward to the time when we are able to participate in the usual activities. Residents have told us how enjoyable they are. The administration provides excellent communication. Judging from our experience so far, we would definitely recommend Clarendale of
Addison as a great place to live.

After touring many senior living facilities, we found Clarendale to be bright, clean, and with a very good staff. My wife and I agree it has the best Executive Director of all the senior homes we visited. We are fortunate to have a Director who demonstrates how much she cares about the residents health, safety, and well-being. If you are looking for a great place to live, come for a visit or tour.

This new facility is absolutely stunning. The rooms overlooking the park have a beautiful view and a perfect walking path so people can get out for some fresh air. The bar on the second floor is a perfect space to meet neighbors and play some pool. Several things to do nearby like movies and golfing, but several activities at Clarendale too. A good variety of restaurants nearby in the community, several even in walking distance!

I’m an occupational therapist that had the opportunity to work in this facility. The staff here are absolutely wonderful! It’s very evident that they really care for their residents. The facility is beautiful, well kept, and has many communal areas for the residents to enjoy.
I love it – the best move I ever made. All the staff are wonderful people. They’ll do anything for you.

We came here to see the facility with my Mother-in-law, she is a local Addison resident and wanted to stay in her hometown. VERY impressed with how friendly the staff was when we visited and how nice the facility was. This place really has all the bells and whistles!! Workout room movie theater and a bar! Addison definitely needed this. We wanted a place that she could stay when her needs change and this was a great fit. So far she really loved it there and event told us she has a lot of new friends and even goes to “Happy Hour” in the bar! We’re so glad we found the right fit to her!
Just had a tour of this facility yesterday and it blew me away. Great convenient location right off 290-light next to a movie theater and fun shopping and dining all around. Elegant, modern look from the moment you walk in. I loved the bistro up front with coffee and pastries. Dining room with great atmosphere without feeling stuffy at all and a lot of dining selections. They had fun, thoughtful activities and a real community feel. Paula who hosted my tour, was amazing to work with and extremely knowledgable about the community. You can tell she enjoyed working there as well. Everyone was extremely friendly. I met the nurse Samantha, who is exactly the type of kind, smart woman I would want caring for my mom. Truly exceeds all expectations.
