Senior Living - Vernon Hills, Illinois

The Park at Vernon Hills, Illinois offers Independent Living and Assisted Living services for seniors.

The Park at Vernon Hills is resort-style retirement living with the largest residential rainforest in the world – larger than a football field and more than six stories tall! It is a beautiful site to behold, maintained at a constant 72 degrees and 50 percent humidity. Walk along the winding quarter-mile walking path and see the spa, pool, café and more than 5,000 trees and shrubs. Conveniently located approximately one mile south of the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Townline Road, The Park is close to a wide variety of shopping and dining options.
Our apartment-style community offers all the conveniences of home without any of the work. In addition to the rainforest café area, The Park features its own arts and crafts studio, fitness center, indoor pool, beauty salon, fireside lounge, country store, putting green and billiards room. Our spacious apartment homes offer a variety of floor plans with cable television, 24-hour emergency response systems and full kitchens with dishwashers. With white tablecloth dinner service, open seating and generous dining hours, we offer nutritious, chef-prepared menu selections made daily. 
With an exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs, residents are encouraged to renew their old interests and explore new ones. Popular programs include “Forever Fit,” bridge, knitting club, current events discussions, mah jongg, Happy Hour and “Historic Stories of the Bible.” Help with everyday tasks can make a big difference in the quality of your life. It’s comforting to know that you can continue to explore "all the places life can go"  – with the added security of a full spectrum of individualized care and wellness services tailored to meet the needs of assisted living residents.
