Service Area

The search for the best elder care and senior living options in Chicago and its suburbs can be overwhelming. Seniors and particularly their families can become confused as to whether the best option is to move to a senior community or stay at home with non-medical home care and other ancillary services.

There are thousands of Independent living, assisted living, nursing homes, and continuing care retirement communities in the Chicago metropolitan area. Our service territory includes the Chicago area and all of the surrounding suburbs in Cook, Du Page, Lake, Will, and Kane Counties of Illinois. As our painstaking, 400-item inspections and evaluations have shown, each differs with regard to cost and method of payment accepted, level of care, quality of care, aesthetics, food, and staffing. We will de-mystify the task of identifying the best senior living situation for your loved one by comparing the options that fit your loved one’s medical needs, budget, and location preferences.

No two seniors or families are alike; yet in our 7-plus years of operation, we at ADSLA have observed many commonalities among our clients.  First, parents love their adult children and vice versa, and a health care crisis or even a mere "fork in the road" in terms of senior housing can create enormous stress for all parties involved.  Second, most seniors and families are overwhelmed by the amount of information and paperwork related to health care, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Legacy planning.   That is why the ADSLA mission is so important:  We believe that seniors and their loved ones in Chicago and the Cook, Du Page, Kane, Lake, and Will County suburbs of Illinois deserve caring, expert advice and accurate, objective information as they consider.

We do not accept any compensation from the services providers represented in our presentations. Therefore, our recommendations are based upon an objective assessment of your loved one’s needs.
