Park Plaza offers premier, independent living accommodations, plus an array of caregiving services on an as-needed basis. A fully-accredited, insured and bonded caregiver agency is located on-site at Park Plaza. Their staff can be hired on an as-needed basis, or for scheduled assistance such as morning and night time help. Residents may choose a few hours of assistance per day or week – or none at all. Medical doctors, dentists, podiatrists and other medical personnel can provide services to individual residents.
Our dining offerings are not what you’d expect at a retirement community. Park Plaza is proud to offer freshly prepared, hotel-quality, culinary delights from the top Kosher caterer in Chicago. Our chefs insist on only the finest ingredients. Residents can enjoy daily meals, seven days a week. Specialty meals are also prepared onsite for all celebratory Jewish and U.S. holidays.
Park Plaza’s culinary staff aims to please all palates and preferences. They serve crisp and colorful salads, fresh vegetables, and premium meats, including: prime rib, veal, lamb chops, steaks, brisket, and salmon.
