“We lived in a three story townhouse and the stairs were beginning to be a problem for me. We looked at a number of retirement communities, but nothing compared to Carriage Oaks. My life has changed for the better since moving here — and my blood pressure went down 20 points. The lifestyle is wonderful…move to Carriage Oaks, it is the frosting on the cake!”

Active Senior Living“We lived far from family and our efforts to maintain our home were rapidly decreasing. We decided to move closer to family and started visiting retirement communities. Some felt like an institution, others didn’t offer enough activities; some didn’t feel cozy or friendly. Then we visited Carriage Oaks and knew immediately it was the right fit for us. Cheryl, Denise, and Denny give 110% of their time and we are so blessed to have the service, support and care they give. We would advise anybody looking at communities to trust their instincts and have a “good feeling” about the community they choose.”

Active Senior Living“For three years, I evaluated senior living communities in Kane, DuPage and western Cook Counties. After extensive review, I chose Carriage Oaks. My expectations have truly been exceeded.”

Active Senior Living“ We said ‘Good-by’ to: snow plowing and shoveling, lawn mowing, steps to do the laundry, the stress of home maintenance (or finding someone to do it!), hauling garbage out to the curb, going out to retrieve the mail and newspaper in bad weather…some empty days on our calendar. We said ‘Hello’ to: a less stressful life, a more sociable life, a happier life and, in all likelihood, a longer life! 10 wonderful years at Carriage Oaks and counting!”

“We have really enjoyed our years here at Carriage Oaks – especially this
past winter. We were able to watch movies, play card games, socialize at
coffee and wine times, select and read books and not have to go outside for
days at a time. We are so glad we moved here to a supportive family of
staff and friends.”

“I had lived in my house for 50 years, raised three sons and had all the family gatherings…so many memories. It was an emotional and difficult decision, but after touring retirement homes Carriage Oaks was my choice. The size was right, the location good and the apartments very nice. What most impressed me were all of the friendly people that lived here and the friendly staff. This is one of the best moves I’ve ever made in life…and I’ve been here over 9 years.”

“After two years of being alone in an eight room house and the neighborhood changing, I decided it was time to move. I was tired of shoveling snow and mowing grass. My daughter and I started to look at communities, but at that time Carriage Oaks wasn’t even built yet. When we learned about the details for this new community, I put down a deposit and was one of the first residents to move in. Carriage Oaks has been my happy home for 16 years – a wonderful place to meet new friends and has wonderful staff!”

“My sister and I wanted to move closer to our daughters who live in Elgin. We searched the internet and found several communities, but when we got to Carriage Oaks we liked it right away and the location was great. We’ve been here three years already, the people here are so cordial, and they are true friends. We feel we made the right decision.”

“After my husband died, my son found Carriage Oaks for me. It is great having no stairs to climb and being surrounded by great friends. Just visit here, you’ll love it!”

—   Penny Marlott

“I watched Carriage Oaks being built, liked the neighborhood, the location and was ready to let go of the worries and responsibilities of maintaining my home and yard. Now I still have a very independent lifestyle, new friends, nice neighbors and lots of social and educational activities. Visit us at Carriage Oaks, we are friendly neighbors!”
