We frequently share what residents have been doing to stay active, involved, and living life to the fullest.

The reviews have spoken! A Place for Mom has recognized our community as one of the Best in Senior Living. Congratulations to our fellow sister communities Palos Verdes, The Oaks at Algonquin, Crescent Park, Las Palomas, Hilliard, Westbrook, Palmilla, Palos Verdes, and Shawnee Hills; we are in ...good company.

Two weeks ago, you saw our residents begin this multi-week program where they created their stencils and used liquid leading to outline their pieces. Here you see the beginning of step two, the flooding of an outlined side with vibrant colors! Stay tuned for more updates as this group works to ...create its unique pieces! #BeYou #BeCreative

Our multi-month-long project has begun! This past week, Mickey and Louise worked together to get our old ice cream chairs to their natural state! The Burr Ridge Restorations Volunteer Group will work to repurpose and redesign these chairs. The plan is to have these chairs be available for a ...suggested donation at one of our Alzheimer's Awareness Fundraisers this year! A little bit of Citristrip, elbow grease, and patience go a long way! Stay tuned for updates! #BeYour #BeCreative

By resident request, throughout January, residents have been immersing themselves into the Icelandic culture by watching a five-part documentary reviewing marine and land mammals, culinary traditions, national parks, and reserves, to breathtaking sights! While not specific to Iceland, also popular Belgium and Scandinavia, our residents loved our Iceland-inspired Bakeology program. They made 'Piparkokur' or Icelandic Pepper Cookies. Most similar to Ginger Snaps, would you consider trying one?

Did you know Tai Chi can improve balance and stability, maintain core strength, and improve cognitive functions and memory? We are happy to offer Tai Chi with Zuzana twice a month, and our residents are raving about it!

I had only been able to stop in for information and we didn't even get a chance to tour before Covid and the stay-at-home orders hit. John was able to provide us video of the actual apartments that were available and answer all of our questions to work us through the process so that when move-ins were allowed again, we were ready to go. It's stressful enough moving a loved one, let alone in these circumstances but we were very confident of our choice after talking with John. Even though we had a couple of bumps with our movers, John and his team went above and beyond to help get my mother-in-law moved in on time and safely under the Covid guidelines. We wish we could have seen her face when she walked in the apartment but talking to her the next morning we knew we made the right choice and she was happy. If anyone else is facing a decision about moving their relative to Burr Senior Living or about doing it during this time of Covid, I would not hesitate to tell you to do it because John and the rest of the team are wonderful!

My parents just moved in and couldn't be happier! Great facility, wonderful for independent living with options if they need to transition into additional care. Staff has been attentive and professional.
