Because the right help at the right time frees you to live your very best life.

At our on-site Assisted Living community in Evanston, near Chicago, we offer personalized levels of care so that your specific needs can be met by our highly trained, caring staff. You’ll have 24-hour assistance with tasks such as dressing, grooming, and bathing.

“Assisted Living within a Life Plan Community allows the benefit of residential living and freedom, while still providing care and support appropriate to each resident. The presence of the McGaw and Foster Healthcare facilities at the community provides a seamless transition for those who may eventually need a higher level of care. I heartily commend The Highlands Assisted Living for those seeking care.”

– Dr. Peter Jaggard

No. In fact, last year, more than 700 “non-residents” recuperated from surgery or benefited from Rehabilitation in our Health Care Center. Our Rehabilitative services include physical and occupational therapies and speech/language pathology.

Independent Living is designed for those who can live safely without any assistance or supervision. The services provided are primarily for convenience and lifestyle benefits.

Assisted Living is designed for individuals who need regular support but do not need a nurse on a daily basis. Assistance can be provided with activities, such as meals, laundry, bathing, dressing, and medication reminders.

Skilled Nursing provides the necessary care for those who need a nurse or certified nursing assistant in their day-to-day lives. Individuals might have chronic conditions that require a skilled caregiver in our McGaw Care Center.

A number of couples living at Presbyterian Homes do not share the same good health. On an individual basis, we can create a program that may include one spouse in Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing and the other in a nearby Independent Living apartment home.
