A memory care community where you can feel your best.

Hartwell Place is like a lively household with a very large family. Nestled in a residential neighborhood, this historic building and its residents are very much a part of the surrounding community.

Family members frequently drop by for breakfast or dinner. And with an ongoing choice of programs and social activities, residents can stay engaged and free from anxiety. Because our caregivers are trained to lead these programs, they create close bonds with residents. They take daily walks together in the neighborhood, shop at the farmer’s market and visit the much-beloved Art Institute of Chicago and love make Hartwell Place a heartwarming place.

Whether you or your loved one is coming from the Ashburn, South Lawndale,  Lake View, Edison Park, or surrounding Chicago area with easy access to major public transportation outlets, Hartwell Place is easy to visit.

The history of Hartwell

Serving the neighborhood since 1898, Chicago Methodist Senior Services established Hartwell Place in 2000, an intimate and vintage community of 29 studio apartments, nestled in the heart of Andersonville, for older adults living with memory loss. This charming building, with original stained-glass windows on the ground floor, was once the convent for St. Gregory’s Church, located just northeast of Hartwell Place.
