Care that’s always there

Prior to moving in we speak with you and your family to showcase all the advantages at Senior Suites that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. These include our emergency pull cord system as well as our daily up and about check-in service.

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.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks and ease of apartment living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease. Residents must financially qualify for the community and the apartment for which they reside. Rental rates are based on availability, the specific income designation for the specific apartment, and the applicant’s income. Rate and income levels are determined and monitored by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Our community consists of 85 studio and one-bedroom affordable senior apartment homes, with varying floor plans and amenities.

Testimonial Image

“Senior Suites of Auburn Gresham, in Chicago Illinois is a very unique assisted living community for seniors. This facility was endorsed by the mayors office. It is new, clean and well maintained. The facility itself is a large apartment complex, but it still gives the sense of “home”. I was impressed with their Fit For Life” program. They have modern exercise equipment. They also pride themselves on “stimulating social, educational, cultural, and recreational activities”. I was able to observe residents engaging in many activities during my tour. This community also claims to have excellent menu choices. While the menu does offer a variety, I did not experience the food on my tour. Either I was hungry or the food is good, because the smell made me want to try, but I did not have the time to sit down in their restaurant style dining area. Overall, I would rate this assited living program above average.” – Kim

“My friend’s apartment is great, everything is going great. The common areas are clean, the residents there are very friendly, the office help are wonderful and helpful and I like the way they take the time to explain things to you and they understand, because they’re seniors, that sometimes they don’t understand so they take time to re explain it. Overall, the place is just terrific, her apartment is so adorable and it was clean. I didn’t see anything wrong with it, even the elevators and the floors and the laundry room was clean to me. I didn’t have no complaints about it, my thing is cleanliness and I didn’t see anything that I could complain about.” – Friend

“I really liked Senior Suites of Auburn. It is a beautiful facility. I feel very secured with the security that they have there. They’re very conscientious about the seniors’ safety and security. The staff treated me very nicely. But they wouldn’t admit me because I am considered as a high-income earner.” – Gilbert W.
