Faith-Based Senior Living near Chicago

What we stand for.

Since 1904, Presbyterian Homes has been an independent, not-for-profit and faith-based family of retirement communities near Chicago, open to all seniors and staff regardless of religious affiliation. Since then, we’ve dedicated ourselves to serving older adults at our communities in Evanston, Lake Forest, and Arlington Heights, Illinois.

We provide peace of mind for all residents by offering a purposeful lifestyle and a full continuum of healthcare services. As a resident, you’ll have access to independent and assisted living options, rehabilitation services, memory support, skilled nursing, and more for as long as you live at your community. That way, you can focus on enjoying life, not worrying about your future care.

At three of our four faith-based senior living communities, we include a range of health care services on campus in return for a one-time entrance fee and ongoing monthly service fee. Even at our unique rental option, Ten Twenty Grove, residents have priority access to a continuum of care at one of our true Life Plan Communities. And if you experience financial hardship through no fault of your own, you can apply to the Geneva Foundation for financial assistance.
