Commonly Asked Questions

What will The Lodge of Northbrook offer me that I don’t have at home?

The answer is almost too long to list!  What we most often hear from our residents is our communities offer a maintenance free lifestyle, a wide variety of social and educational opportunities, and peace of mind for all the “what if’s” in life.  What if I have to give up my driver’s license?  What if I can no longer go up and down stairs?  What if I need to use a wheel chair or walker?  What if I need additional help with day to day activities?

What happens if I leave town for an extended period of time?

No problem.  We will hold your mail, water your plants or provide any other peace of mind services we can so that you can relax and enjoy your travels.

Will I be able to decorate my new home?

Yes, you will be able to furnish and decorate your new residence.  If you need assistance securing a painter, wall paper hanger or other decorating service provider, give us a call.

Will there be any stairs in my new home?

No!  The entire building is barrier free.

Do I have to participate in social activities?
