My mother recently moved here from another facility. The care and concern that have been shown to her and our family have been exceptional. The move-in process was made easy. I am continually impressed by how kind and caring all the team members 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 for two months, and so far, it has been a great move!  


Senior Living In Clarendon Hills

The Birches is meant to feel classic. Our community is full of cozy nooks and other spaces perfect for conversations and spending time together. We constantly hear that our space is homey and has a family feel. One resident's granddaughter said, "Oh my, this looks exactly like my grandma's house!"

This is home to our residents, so this is precisely how it's designed to be. Our exterior is designed to feel like a traditional Southern home with white siding, brick detailing, a patio, a balcony, and a courtyard.

We've created a assisted living community 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. Whether residents need assistance with activities or participate independently, there are always opportunities for enrichment, fun, and community building.

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. It offers an outdoor garden and the freedom to explore safely.

What makes the Birches Memory Care community different from 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.
