Selfhelp Home Assisted Living Chicago

Live Active and Receive Care

Find the balance you need!

The Selfhelp Home - First in the Nation to Achieve Joint Commission Assisted Living Community Accreditation

At Selfhelp, you can continue to lead an active lifestyle in your modern 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.

Selfhelp was the first in the nation in 2021 to receive Joint Commission accreditation for Assisted Living Services.

The Accreditation highlights Selfhelp’s continued commitment to providing the highest quality of service for all our residents throughout the continuum of care in our community. You can read more about the accreditation here.

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.
