Smart & Engaged Living In the City of Chicago

Smart Financial Planning
Reduce expenses and control senior living costs as a resident of The Admiral at the Lake. The community offers dining, maintenance and utilities (among other benefits), which are included in the service fee. We will work with you to maximize your lifestyle while helping you make the best financial decisions for your future.

Lifecare Program

Our Lifecare contract is a long-term care option that gives you the confidence that, in the event of a change in your health, your health care needs will be taken care of by skilled and courteous staff. Lifecare assures a resident that if they ever need long-term care — such as Assisted Living, Memory Support or Skilled Nursing — they’ll have these services and receive them at about the same monthly fee they pay in Independent Living. Residents know where they will receive care, who will provide it, and what it will cost. By planning now for your long-term care, you can receive substantial savings over the years.

Activities & Entertainment
The Admiral at the Lake believes in the importance of leading a full and active life. A creative arts studio, formal library, and private woodworking shop are just a few of the amenities available to residents of our active adult community.

Social Connections
There’s plenty of opportunity to connect with others in our senior community. That’s why we established the Lifelong Learning Committee to help organize guest lectures and trips for residents. It’s about staying social, from clubs and lifelong learning classes to resident gatherings in our 14th-floor lounge.

Safety & Security
Security is a top priority at our senior living community in Chicago. In addition to 24-hour security and controlled access to the building, The Admiral at the Lake also provides secure parking for its residents and their guests.

Health & Wellness
Our Wellness Center is open 24 hours a day to help you stay focused on health and fitness during your retirement. We offer a variety of fitness classes, including aerobics and strength/balance workouts. We also have an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool. Aquatic workouts are also available.
