Assisted Living & Memory Care in Chicago


Located in beautiful Northbrook, our premier Chicago-area Assisted Living and Memory Care location offers luxury retirement apartments and specializes in senior care. North Shore Place is not only conveniently located near the Chicago Botanical Gardens, Ravinia Music Festival, Northbrook Mall and Lake Michigan, but also near major highways for ease of travel.


Our Assisted Living community features many common areas designed for enjoying life with family and friends. You can play cards or pool, watch your favorite movie in our theater, relax in the courtyard by the pond, or pamper yourself with a signature treatment in the spa. Residents enjoy the convenience of routine housekeeping and nutritious seasonal cuisine prepared by our Executive Chef. We invite you to contact us to explore our personalized approach and to learn more about the advantages of life at North Shore Place, our premier Chicago senior living community.


Part of our community is designed and operated specifically for residents in need of memory assistance. Northbrook Memory Care residents will be cared for by staff who are professionally trained in Dementia Care and will have access to extensive amenities including a private courtyard. With a licensed nurse on staff 24/7, our community is staffed around the clock and has a host of security systems, including an emergency call system with a daily check-in feature.

Prior to moving in, we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest at North Shore Place. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.


Senior Lifestyle will never ask for a large down payment to join the North Shore Place community. We care about not only the physical and emotional well-being of our residents, but their financial health as well.

We have 156 apartments with a variety of very spacious apartment styles and floor plans, which feature full kitchens, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer and dryer, and many more amenities.

Dining at North Shore Place

Live Well, Dine Well

Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

They consistently make brilliant suggestions for interesting new programs and clubs, which we are more than happy to make a reality. We empower every resident to continue to grow, connect, move, and create at their own pace.

The group meets the last Tuesday of every month from 10:30am to noon at North Shore Place Assisted Living, 1000 Sunset Ridge Road, Northbrook.

  • Meet others on the journey who face similar challenges
  • Learn about Dementia and its symptoms
  • Discover ways decrease caregiver stress

Meet Our Executive Director and Assistant Vice President of Community Integration

Regina Umanskiy

Mrs. Umanskiy, Assistant Vice President of Community Integration, has more than 15 years of professional experience in senior living and has been an Executive Director with Senior Lifestyle since 2006. During her tenure in the industry, Regina has worked her way up since starting as a Director of Nursing.

“My favorite part about working here at North Shore Place is making a difference in residents’ lives,” she says. “Whenever a new resident moves here, I’m always excited to help them lead the most productive, fulfilling life possible.

“As soon as you walk into our community, you can feel the warmth and how welcoming our team members are. We cater to all residents’ needs and create a home just for them. Our team members become family to our residents, and our residents become family to our staff. The residents share their life experiences with us and invite their families to visit and meet our team, which is always such an honor. Our team members, too, often bring their children to meet the residents and spend time together.”

Regina pledges that upon move-in residents can expect the highest level of care—even as their needs change. The team of dedicated professionals takes excellent care of each resident. Regina is extremely proud of the Deficiency Free Survey in Assisted Living and Memory Care.
