Our Community

Brookdale Lake Shore Drive, located in Chicago, Illinois, offers exceptional independent living and personalized assisted living options for seniors.

We boast spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline from almost every apartment. Best of all, its location on Lake Shore Drive makes it easy to enjoy all that downtown Chicago has to offer, including world-famous restaurants, shopping and museums.

Life at Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

Besides the convenient location, we offer first-class services and amenities that make retirement living delightful. Everything at our community is tailored to your interests. We offer three full-service dining rooms for a choice of an elegant or casual setting, and a full complement of menu choices that will please even the most discerning palettes.

Our community offers an impressive line of services and amenities including a wellness and fitness center, and a beautiful lounge with ambient fireplace. There are daily events and programs that provide endless social opportunities to stay active and engaged. Enjoy an event in our community room, read and relax in the library, or head outside to garden in one of our raised flowerbeds.

Our Independent Living Community

Residents in our independent living community can enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle that leaves them free to explore their hobbies and interests. You can enjoy a cocktail with friends in our club room or take in the gorgeous views from our third-floor garden terrace.

You’ll also want to take advantage of our state-of-the-art fitness equipment designed specifically for seniors. And with a variety of group outings, cultural events and educational programs, there’s definitely something for everyone. You’ll have everything you need all in one, city-central community.

Our Assisted Living Community

We believe seniors should never be held back from enjoying the life they love because they need help with certain everyday tasks such as dressing, hygiene, bathing/showering, and medication management. At Brookdale Lake Shore Drive we provide assistance to seniors in the privacy of their own apartment. And because our service fees are based on the time it takes to provide quality service, residents only pay for the assistance they need.

With our full range of services and dedicated staff available, it’s easy for seniors to remain active and engaged. You’ll be proud to call Brookdale Lake Shore Drive your home, and you’ll wonder why it took so long to finally make the move.

Levels of Care

At Brookdale Lake Shore Drive, you’ll discover a community that’s focused on our residents. We care about each one of our seniors and want to provide the lifestyle they want. Our staff is here for you, however you need.

As one of our residents, you’ll be able to retain independence while accessing resort-style amenities that you’d never get living in a neighborhood. Discover more about the lifestyle and care options we can offer you:

Independent Living 

When you live alone or with a partner, there are so many daily tasks that you have to be in charge of. From cooking regularly to doing the laundry to tending to the yard, all of these tasks can just be burdensome. Plus, they take up time you could be doing other things — spending time with friends and family, enjoying old hobbies or discovering new ones, and playing fun games.

At Brookdale Lake Shore Drive, we can take care of these daily tasks for you. No more having to drive to the grocery store and plan out meals. Instead, you’ll be able to sit down at our fine dining room and be served delicious meals three times a day. The only time you’ll need to cook is when you want to — for fun, not necessity. We’ll take care of the tasks you don’t want to so you can enjoy your independence fully.

You’ll have the best of all worlds — the safety of a managed, secure location, the social and entertainment options that come with living near a group of like-minded seniors, and the quality of life that a first class senior community provides.

Our residents have the freedom that they want, engage in the planned activities that they want, and connect with the social groups they want. But they maintain their independence, deciding for themselves which services they want to take advantage of.

Assisted Living

Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. But even with that little bit of support, you still want to maintain a level of independence. That’s where our staff can provide the right balance of care.

Our community provides care that combines independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. It’s all tailored to fit you and your needs. We work with each of our residents, understanding their needs first and then crafting together a plan that fits their situation. You only pay for the services that you need.

We also monitor your situation and needs during your stay, and can easily adjust plans at any time. But our goal is to provide you with an individualized experience, and make you feel like you have a partner with us. Our residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here for them, in whatever way they need.

Your Next Home is Right Around the Corner

We are confident that you will fall in love with our community. From our top-notch amenities, to our friendly services to our incredible location, you don’t want to wait to become a resident. Give us a call today.
