We would like to introduce our most cherished resident, #MyrtletheTurtle. A 3-toed box turtle, Myrtle found her way to our community and into our hearts. She’s bringing so much joy to our #MemoryCare neighborhood. This series will highlight the love and connection between animals and humans. We ...are excited to show you how Myrtle the Turtle is enriching the lives of our incredible residents.

Without further ado, Myrtle the Turtle: The Series🐢

It was a fascinating and educational afternoon as we visited The National Museum of the American Sailor in Great Lakes, IL. From knots to uniforms to tattoos, we learned so much about the life of the American sailor over the centuries.

For a woman whose life has been fueled by her adventurous spirit, being able to check off all 50 states from her travel list is a great accomplishment. Pat is a woman who moved quite frequently due to the nature of her husband’s job. Pat and her husband have visited every state except for one, ...Alaska.

Pat has a great passion for traveling as well as painting. So, it came as no surprise when Pat said her @wishofalifetime was to travel to Alaska to take a painting class.

Thank you @wishofalifetime, for helping Pat and her daughter get to Alaska. They both attended an outdoor painting class and enjoyed every second of it!

Here's to 103 years of memories and 103 years of life! You are special, and honor is due to all the great experiences life has given you. You've lived a FULL life and have brought so much joy to everyone that knows you.

Happy birthday 🎁🎉

Our Memory Care residents gave their time, talents and love to help feed starving children in the world. We were a great team doing good work and plan to return soon!

Feed My Starving Children

Palos Heights hosted a family "Carnival for a Cause" raising more than $2,000 for the @alzassociation in one night! The evening was filled with tasty treats, an array of carnival games, live music, balloon creations, and the unanimous favorite: the dunk tank 😂

I want to send out a big thank you to the staff at Cedar Lake. So very compassionate and are taking good care of my mom, Josephine Basquel. They have gone beyond to make sure she is comfortable and happy.A special shout out to Wendy and Elizabeth at the front desk who have made sure my mom’s Xmas gifts were brought to her room and the batteries needed were in place and that she knew who they were from.I can’t tell you how much you all have lifted my spirits during this COVID pandemic when I’m not able to go home and visit her.Gratefully,Judy McCosky

We checked out many places for my Mom, and Cedar Lake stood out from all the rest. Mom moved in last month and she loves living there. The staff are all very nice people and genuinely seem to care about my mom. She now has people to help her with anything that she needs, and she still has all her own furniture in her own apartment. Our family is glad to have found a great place for her.

This is the most beautiful place I’ve seen by far, as I tour places for my Father. The entire experience was wonderful! Shirley is a beautiful, caring, all around wonderful person!! My tour with her was so nice, and comforting... She really made me feel so much better, and calmed my nerves so much. I’d refer this beautiful home, to anyone without thinking twice!! If you’re having a hard time finding a wonderful place for your loved one... go see Shirley!!! You won’t be disappointed!!
