Located in New Lenox, IL, a southwest suburb of Chicago, our Assisted Living community offers everything older adults need – and want. It’s the best of all worlds … supportive services combined with an engaging, enriching lifestyle in the best of locations.
Personal Care Services
We offer different levels of care and assistance based on individual needs. Services may include help with activities of daily living (ADLs) like dressing, bathing, grooming and toileting as well as medication management and oversight. And, unlike many other assisted living facilities and personal care communities, we have licensed nurses on site 24/7 to support and nurture our residents.
Maintenance-Free Living Defined
Our residents no longer deal with chores and tasks because we take care of it all so they can spend their time making new friends, building relationships and pursuing things that interest them.
A Full Social Calendar
Life at The Cottages of New Lenox helps seniors avoid a common problem with living at home – isolation. Here, residents have countless opportunities to connect with friends, family and staff. We offer many options to stimulate and engage their minds and bodies in a safe and comforting environment.
Take a baking or art class (or both). Try gardening. Join clubs and play games. Laugh! Engage! Go outside of our campus and get ice cream, walk in the park or dine at local New Lenox restaurants.
Quite simply, our residents enjoy a life that’s familiar, fulfilling – and fun. The biggest difficulty our residents have in a day is deciding what not to do.
Peace of Mind
Our residents enjoy their retirement to the fullest because they can breathe easily knowing they’re in a community where it’s easy to live healthily and independently, no matter how health needs may change in the future. Families can let go of the stress of not knowing how their mom or dad is doing. Instead, everyone can focus on enjoying time together and enjoying all life has to offer.
For added peace of mind, the renowed Memory Care program, I’m Still Here®, is available on site.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?
Overall, the main difference between assisted living and care offered in a nursing home is that nursing homes provide medical and personal care in a clinical setting, while assisted living primarily provides personal care in a homelike, social setting.
Who qualifies for assisted living?
Seniors whose health or well-being requires a higher level of support or those who would benefit from a healthier lifestyle and social engagement are the best candidates for an assisted living retirement community. Most communities conduct a health assessment that follows state regulations to determine what level of care or assistance is best for each individual.
What kind of services does assisted living provide?
- One to three meals a day
- Monitoring of medication
- Personal care, including dressing and bathing
- Housekeeping and laundry
- Some medical services
- Social and recreational activities
- Care coordination
- Mobility assistance
- Complimentary transportation
Some assisted living communities offer Respite Care or short-term care. Additionally, some communities offer access to home care services for those who may need more assistance than is provided at the community but who are not yet ready for a skilled nursing care center.
What is the cost of assisted living in New Lenox, IL?
The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 estimates the median monthly rate for assisted living in New Lenox, IL is $4,841, which breaks down to around $159 per day.

Who pays for assisted living?

Most assisted living residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.
