Proposed Independent Living Expansion and Renewal

Independent Living Expansion

For more than 30 years, The Moorings of Arlington Heights has provided high-quality living options for older adults in the Greater Chicago area. With robust programming, diverse opportunities for engagement, a full continuum of care, and a reputation for providing seniors peace of mind as their needs may change, there has been an apparent and vocal desire for more Independent Living residences.

To meet this increased demand, Presbyterian Homes and The Moorings of Arlington Heights began exploring what it would mean to add additional Independent Living residences to the community. Working alongside Perkins Eastman, Plante Moran, Skender, and other consultants, the team is now in the early stages of plans for this proposed expansion.

This expansion will be a vital component of a renewal of the community and a continued affirmation of its commitment to helping seniors live better, longer.
