Our Retirement Community in Evanston, IL
Choices for What Matters Most
What’s on your checklist for the ideal senior living community? Perhaps you’d like a large, walkable campus with gardens and green space. A fitness center with a robust offering of classes and a heated pool. The opportunity to keep learning, go to the opera or theater more often, or figure out how to use a loom or a kiln. Maybe you’re looking for a way to plan ahead for future healthcare needs so you’ll know what to expect and your family won’t have to worry. Whatever’s on that list, you’ll probably find it here. And you’ll have the added bonus of belonging to a community of people who love getting the most out of life—just like you do.
“I saw a quote the other day, ‘When you know what feels right and you’re comfortable, you are home.’ It’s just the way I feel about life at Westminster Place. You don’t worry about anything. I wake up in the morning smiling and I go to bed at night smiling. I am HOME…”

Services and Amenities
Is there a waitlist to move into Westminster Place?
Club 1904 is our Priority Waitlist Program, but it’s so much more than waiting on a list. Club 1904 is an exclusive program that puts you in total control of your future at Westminster Place. It’s a distinguished list for those who have made the decision to move in when the residence of their choice is ready, as opposed to an interest list of those who may be ready in a few years.
Members of Club 1904 enjoy exclusive benefits, including the ability to choose the exact residence they want down to the finest details,and take advantage of exclusive club privileges before they officially move into our community.
Does a person need to be Presbyterian to live in a Presbyterian Homes community?
No, all of our communities are non-sectarian, and no religious affiliation is necessary. We respect all faith traditions.
Presbyterian Homes is a not-for-profit organization. Why should this be important to me?
Not-for-profit communities are guided by a strong mission and put people before profits. Instead of pleasing stockholders, our Board of Directors and employees focus on resident needs. In addition, any proceeds not needed for expenses are reinvested in the community.
Presbyterian Homes offers financial assistance. What does this mean?
If a resident who has signed a Life Plan Residence Agreement outlives their assets (through no fault of their own), they will be eligible to receive financial assistance from the Geneva Foundation, the benevolent arm of Presbyterian Homes.
Will I need to give all my assets to Presbyterian Homes?
Absolutely not. Each resident maintains control of their assets. We now offer many financial options to meet a potential resident’s budget.
When am I entitled to a refund of my refundable entrance fee?
We offer a number of options, including a 30-day refund option and a 1-year guaranteed refund option. Otherwise, refunds are typically paid once a resident leaves the community and once their residence has been resold and we have received a replacement entrance fee.
Will we own our residence?
The “equity” in your residence is limited by your potential refund. Presbyterian Homes retains the official title, so if you move to Assisted Living or healthcare, it is a convenient and seamless process that does not require you or your family to “sell” your previous residence.
