Our Rewarding and Supportive Services

Celebrating over 125 years of service, our non-profit community offers an active and rewarding lifestyle to older adults of all faiths, with the peace of mind of supportive services as they are needed. Our ideal location in Chicago’s thriving Andersonville/Ravenswood neighborhood is only steps away from shops, restaurants and transportation. Cherish your independence and live maintenance-free at Thorek Retirement Home!

“Never having lived in a ‘big city,’ I appreciate how my new home orients all residents to this area, bringing entertainment, information and opportunity to all of us on a daily basis. I particularly like the fact that so much is at our fingertips to keep us going: exercise programs, brain-enhancing games and activities, close-at-hand medical care, and a group of buddies who share our needs as we grow older together. We thank the staff for their care and support and appreciate being able to look forward-instead of dwelling in the past.”
