Senior Suites of Chatham

Live the Good Life at Senior Suites of Chatham

Beginning in 2005, Senior Suites of Chatham offers 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. Our community is also the site of the Chicago’s Department of Senior Services’ satellite senior center.

Designed with you in mind

Senior Suites of Chatham 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 90 studio and one-bedroom affordable senior apartment homes, with varying floor plans and amenities described below.

Testimonial Image

I saw the Senior Suites of Chatham but I don’t think they had assisted living because at that time we were looking for just senior independent-living apartments. The only thing I didn’t like about them is the rooms looked like the dimensions were a little smaller but the place itself was really nice. I liked them as far as the way the building was made and the fact that the Department of Aging is attached to the building so that the tenants in that building would have the option if they wanted to go down and participate with some of the meals, the movies, the programs that go on during the day at the Department of Aging center.

Testimonial Image

Senior Suites of Chatham was nice, clean, quiet, and affordable. The apartments were not really small, but they kept it really clean. They had a community room where everyone goes down to play cards, play ping pong, drink coffee, and watch movies. The food was OK. It was a good place.
