Plarn! Have you heard of it? It's plastic yarn! Plarn is made by cutting plastic bags into strips and connecting them. Plarn can be used to crochet all sorts of items, including trash bins, baskets, and coasters. We're creating plarn to donate to local volunteers that take this plarn to ...crochet sleeping mats for homeless people. We're saving the environment while helping those in need; it's a win-win for everybody! #plarn #community

Who knew you could create such beautiful artwork with Q-tips and straws? Residents had so much fun dipping and stamping their masterpieces. Residents want to learn other techniques!

Residents were thrilled to host students from St. Al's for an afternoon of fun. While the students may have won more games than us, we couldn't get enough of their fun-loving, high-energy spirits! We can't wait to have them back! #community #beinvolved #beconnected

Residents created their air terrariums and learned how to care for them with Lake Katherine this week. Air plants are usually tiny, easy to grow, and don't need soil. As the name implies, air plants absorb nutrients and water from the air through scales on their leaves, making these adorable ...greenhouses perfect for residents' rooms. #diy #natureindoors #gardening

Our first resident art show was a major hit! The goal was to highlight many diverse and creative talents in our community, and that we did!

We displayed welded metal figures to perfectly painted flowers, towel origami to patchwork quilts; the resident's artistry and skill were on ...display.

Thank you to all the families and friends who came to support our amazing artists.

Thanks to the local nature center, Lake Katherine, our residents are helping the environment, feeding the wildlife, and learning about their impact on Earth. Their skilled staff comes to our community to highlight a different nature-based topic. With spring upon us, it was the perfect time to paint... birdhouses that we will place around the nature preserve. If you're walking the trail, let us know when you spot them! #nature #community #wildlife

We're so lucky to have such wonderful artists here! Each month we gather to test out a new technique or practice a learned skill to create a masterpiece. These lovely ladies are officially ready for St. Patty's Day! #gogreen #shamrock #livecolorfully

We were having a roarin' good time at the jazz joint until things went horribly wrong! It was of gangsters and flappers socializing, prohibition, laughs, music, and fellowship. Residents immersed themselves into character roles, hunted down clues in a scavenger hunt, and solved a murder ...mystery! Luckily, it was all good fun, and the residents can't wait to do it again!

Hear From Residents and Family of Palos Heights Senior Living!

My mom has lived here for two years and has found a wonderful community of friends. The place is new and beautifully decorated. They seem to have worked out the kinks of being short-staffed, and have a new, better chef. My issue is with Spectrum - they continue to raise the rent above the % agreed upon in the contract. My mom is on a fixed income as all these older folks are. She’s happy here. Please don’t push it to being cost-prohibitive for corporate greed.

We participated in a virtual tour with Joanne and she did a wonderful job. We actually made the decision to move our loved one to PHSL.

We did a zoom call with Joanne Birtch and she was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She gave great advice in regards to speaking with my mother in law about this major life change. We feel more comfortable speaking with her after speaking with Joanne. We were able to get a good understanding of the apartments available and what the costs will include. We hope we are able to bring her in for an in person tour Spring of 2021. Our zoom could not have gone better!!
