Live the Good Life at Senior Suites of Austin

Built in 1998, the Senior Suites of Austin is a beautiful community for seniors age 62 or better. Our affordable, high-quality apartment homes feature a number of amenities for safety, comfort, and entertainment, and the care from our dedicated staff is unmatched. Located among the many attractions of Chicago, Senior Suites of Austin offers the best value in the area.

Designed with you in mind

Senior Suites of Austin allows residents to maintain an active lifestyle with the ease of maintenance-free living, security, and wellness programs. We also offer on-site parking, secured entry systems, complimentary laundry rooms with washers and dryers, and grocery shopping transportation. Your comfort and convenience is always our top priority.

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 84 studio and one-bedroom affordable senior apartment homes, with varying floor plans and amenities described below.

Dining at Senior Suites of Austin

Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients. 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.

Our Senior Suite communities offer a convenient optional meal program. The meals are freshly prepared by our Executive Chef at the Senior Suites of Austin and delivered to all of our Senior Suite locations. Residents can enjoy these nutritious meals 5 days a week.

Testimonial Image

“We found Senior Suites of Austin through some acquaintances and decided to check it out. The grounds looked really nice, well kept and looked peaceful, which is important to our Aunt, since she enjoys reading and writing outdoors when the weather permits. The main room was nicely decorated and felt warm and inviting; everyone we saw appeared to be very well taken care of. They have many social activities and make trips into downtown and other regions in Chicago to go shopping, visit museums, see films, theater and participate in other activities geared toward seniors. The exercise facilities were quite nice, with many options, including yoga and other classes, with some machine work available. The food was really nicely prepared – with options and choices for many tastes and dietary concerns. The food we saw looked delicious. For colder days, there is a well-stocked library and a nearby media center were anyone who wishes may see a film. They also host other events there with visitors from around the community. We thought this was a thoughtfully designed living community for seniors, with very attentive staff.” -commercesd

Testimonial Image

“I was able to tour Senior Suites of Austin, in Chicago, Illinois. I talked to a few people living there, and they all talked about how they felt the staff were friendly. They also felt they were well taken care of by the staff. I was able to observe the staff engaging with the residents, and to me it did appear there was a good relationship between the nurse and a few of the clients. The nurse was very attentive and the residents looked consoled and comforted. The facility looked very clean, nice and comfortable. The main community areas were nicely situated for socializing or relaxing. I would rate this facility above average for assisted living facilities.” – Commercesd
