Our Chatman community welcomes you to your new, bright senior lifestyle.

Senior living is simpler at the Senior Suites of Chatham. Our bright community lets you live the senior lifestyle you’ve always wanted in the Chicago neighborhood you’ve come to love. We help independent seniors cross more off their daily to-do lists with ease by providing convenient services and amenities like grocery transportation, housekeeping, and emergency response systems.

Senior Lifestyle’s Senior Suites have been Chicago’s pioneer in affordable housing since 1995 and currently has 24 communities in the area. With the cooperation of the city, we offer affordable senior living in a variety of neighborhoods throughout the city to those individuals 62 years and better. 

Those interested in our community can reach out to our team to learn more about affordable senior housing. Potential residents need to apply and qualify for rental rates, which are based on availability and applicant income. Our application process doesn’t require a security deposit or buy-in, only a simple 12-month lease. With the application process in mind, we welcome prospective tenants, families, and friends to visit our community to learn more.
