March 27, 2018—A seven-page supplement to Crain’s Chicago Business includes several references to health care services provided at The Admiral at the Lake. Titled “Decisions,” the supplement focuses on how to help aging loved ones make the best health care, financial and living choices.
An article on “How to Quarterback Care for an Older Parent,” recounts the story of an artist who took on caregiving responsibilities for her ailing father who didn’t want to move to a care facility. “For two years, Barbara Cooper did little else than supervise her father’s care as his health deteriorated,” the article notes. After her father died, Barbara’s mother moved to a residential apartment at The Admiral.
Following a fall and hospitalization, Barbara’s mother moved to The Harbors, the assisted living area at The Admiral. Her mother is “quite happy” there, Barbara says, because she has people around her, she gets her medications on time and there are lots of activities and opportunities to socialize. “I’m not worrying about my mother as much,” Barbara says. “It’s a great thing.”
