Live Active and Receive Care
Find the balance you need!
At Selfhelp, you can continue to lead an active lifestyle in your one-bedroom or studio apartment and receive just the right amount of care you need, when you need it. We know that each resident is an individual with a unique set of needs and preferences. Our assisted-living services come to you in your apartment, so there is no need to move to a separate unit. Our independent and assisted-living communities are integrated, allowing residents to age in place, without a stressful move.
Our Assisted-Living Program is run by an experienced Nurse Manager and a team of personal aides who provide you the care you need in your own apartment. Residents are also welcome to visit the Nurse in our Wellness Center. We only employ personal aides who are flexible, trained, kind and experienced and who encourage residents to remain active and involved in our community.
We take an active approach to addressing resident healthcare needs by maintaining ongoing communication with each resident’s physician. This commitment to our residents has earned us a solid reputation for quality care throughout the Chicagoland area.
Each resident is an individual with unique needs and preferences. We meet with residents and family to evaluate the need for assistance and support. This evaluation helps determine the appropriate care and service that preserves each residents dignity, encourages independence and best enables freedom of choice. Prior to moving, a Selfhelp nurse will help determine the appropriate level of care. We will periodically review the level of assistance, depending on the changing needs of the resident. Our pricing below is based on the level of care each patient may need.
