The Nicest People in the Business

Like all the lakefront, this area is windy. But if you are old and tend to stay inside, so what? But if the weather is good they have beautiful grounds abutting Lincoln Park.

This building is the closest thing to fun a senior can have and we love to go there to visit. There are nice party rooms for private parties. You can do just about anything there from planting to singing to using a computer. I am looking forward to retiring there.

The staff are the sweetest most caring people and there are lots of them around to help.

The best retirement community in Chicago

When we choose The Breakers at Edgewater Beach for my mother, we had looked at 9 different places. The Breakers outshone them all. Two years later she still loves the place and has made a lot of friends. I don't have to worry because I know she is safe, having fun, and enjoying her own life. My family and I love to go to dinner there because the food is so good. But what really makes the difference is the staff. They are outstanding -- very professional but warm and kind. You can get discounted parking so visiting is easy. My mother no longer drives but she takes their van for errands and shopping. She has even hired The Breakers' limo to take her places. Her beautiful apartment has a fantastic view of the lake. When comparing other retirement homes, we found that you get so much more for your money. Other places we looked at charged a lot more, and don't even have all of the ammenities like a swimming pool and doctor's and dentist's offices right in the building.
