At the Birches Assisted Living facility, our residents deserve to have the best life possible.

We’ve created a supportive senior assisted living environment designed to meet our residents where they are in life. And we offer plenty of opportunities for learning and being as active as they want. 

We are a certified Montessori Community. Only the most seriously committed senior living organizations have taken the additional steps to become a Montessori Inspired Lifestyle credentialed community, and the Birches is proud to be a part of this elite group.

Below is a small sample of the services that are available to our residents:

  • Culinary Services 
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Services.
  • Housekeeping Services
  • Laundry Services
  • 24-hour emergency response system
  • Access to scheduled transportation


My mother recently moved her from another facility. The care and concern that has been shown to her and our family has been exceptional. The move in process, even in the midst of Covid, was made easy. I am continually impressed by how kind and caring all the members of the team are. They genuinely seem to like their jobs—which was not the experience that we had previously. The communication with staff is excellent. Any concern or question I have had has been answered quickly and professionally. The nursing care is thorough and the activities planned are innovative and engaging. My mom has been there two months and so far it has been a great move!

Birches Memory Care in Clarendon Hills

We have carefully and thoughtfully created a space that lets our residents thrive, bringing them joy and comfort—and the opportunity to succeed.

The Birches Memory Care neighborhood is located on the first floor in a secured environment, complete with an outdoor garden and freedom to explore safely.

What makes the Birches Memory Care community different than other communities?

  • Our ratio of care staff to residents is 1 to 8. This ratio is unheard of in memory care communities.

  • Twelve-hour programming, not eight hours, seven days a week.

  • Our dedicated memory care nurse manages medication and is available seven days a week.

  • We provide comprehensive wellness plans. We don't take a one-size-fits-all approach to memory care.

  • Our culinary team provides specialized meals to accommodate residents nutritional needs.

  • We don't have a special menu for memory care residents. All residents are welcome to enjoy the same culinary delights.

Each memory care apartment is hard-wired and customized for each resident with our memory care emergency system.

At the Birches we have implemented the Vigil Memory Care System for memory care residents. The Vigil Memory Care System is an award-winning system that uses passive sensors and sophisticated software to ensure resident safety while respecting privacy and dignity.​ 

Our Emergency software system “checks in” with each wireless device (pendant, bathroom button, bed sensor, door sensor, etc.) twice a day to make sure a signal is received and the device is working properly.
