Hartwell Place is an intimate assisted living community with engaging programming exclusively for people with memory loss. With only 28 apartments and a high caregiver-to-resident ratio, everyone receives personalized memory care from our specially trained memory-loss caregivers. At Hartwell Place, you can be part of a caring community where all programs and events are designed with you in mind. As a top Chicago IL assisted living community, our residents experience individualized service and expert care.
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.
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.
Whether you’re just beginning your journey with a loved one with memory loss or you’re long down the road, we want to help support you.
