Engaged Assisted Living in Chicago

At The Harbors at The Admiral at the Lake, those needing a helping hand with daily activities can find the kind of support that only comes from a warm, homelike environment. Located in our private health care residence adjoining the Independent Living community, Assisted Living at The Harbors offers residents the safety and security of around-the-clock assistance with the opportunity to live a full, active, and engaging lifestyle.

In this resident-driven culture, participation is valued and encouraged. Residents direct the programs, activities and events, creating a lifestyle shaped to support and promote their hobbies and interests. Additionally, Assisted Living residents have access to all community features and amenities, adding a variety of possibilities to every day.

Personalized Care Designed To Meet Your Needs

At The Harbors, we respect that no two people will have the same needs, expectations and preferences. Here, care is customized to meet the needs and choices of every individual. Knowing that needs change and evolve, we watch carefully, ensuring we deliver the most appropriate level of care and support so residents live with confidence and their family members enjoy complete peace of mind.

Rather than caregivers, The Harbors staff are senior care partners who work together with residents and families to learn what matters most to the individuals we serve.

A Life Plan Community, also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community, eases transitions from one level of senior living to the next. Care and services in Assisted Living mean that residents can rely on help appropriate to their level of need. As these needs change, residents can access higher levels of comprehensive, uninterrupted care – including MemorySupport, Skilled Nursing, and Rehabilitation – inside a familiar environment with people they know and trust. If help is needed, it’s only a few steps away.


The Harbors features three Assisted Living neighborhoods, each with its own dedicated staff and relaxing community common space. Each neighborhood also has a community kitchen, with healthy snacks available 24 hours a day. For convenience, washers and dryers are also located within each neighborhood. Don’t feel like doing your own laundry? Laundry services are available for an additional fee.

Residents live in comfort in their own private suites, each with an en suite bath. Of all the assisted living facilities in Chicago, Illinois, the suites in The Harbors may offer the most incredible views of the city. Some overlook Lake Michigan, with its sparkling water, sandy beaches and passing boats. Others offer the sights of The Admiral’s incredible outdoor terraces, rich with lush greenery, plants and flowers.

Q: What is Assisted Living?
A: Assisted Living communities offer more personalized care to seniors in a residential setting than Independent Living. The Harbors team helps individuals with activities of daily living to aid them in being as independent as possible.

Q: When Should You Move to Assisted Living?
A: There are many options for senior Assisted Living, depending on the level of care required. If you find that your loved one has experienced a shift from independence to needing help with ADLs, it might be time for Assisted Living. Contact a Residency Counselor to discuss what help you and your loved one need, and we can assist with helping you in identifying the right level of care.
