Who is Aspired Living® of La Grange and What Services Do We Offer?

Live Well. Age Well. Be Well. What does that mean for today’s seniors? What does that mean for the older adult who’s interested in having choices, growing each and every day and making every new day an adventure?

“Aspired Living of La Grange, a Pathway to Living community, is the place for seniors who are looking for a lifestyle that is supportive and inspiring,” says Terri Geppner, Director of Community Relations at Aspired Living® of La Grange. “Our community has been purposefully designed to provide our residents with the lifestyle they deserve. With just one virtual visit, we’re sure we can change the way you look at senior living.”

Aspired Living of La Grange offers Independent Living, Assisted Living and memory support communities on a state-of-the-art campus that’s been designed with today’s seniors in mind. The community is just minutes away from Brookfield Zoo and a bustling downtown lined with unique dining experiences and local attractions.

“We want our residents to be a part of the greater community as well as our internal community,” says Terri. “Walk to the Metra stop and head to Chicago or take advantage of downtown La Grange just outside the community. Besides our great neighborhood, however, is our thoughtful and award-winning VIVA! programs that are woven throughout all aspects of life here. Our signature programming has been proven to enhance lives spiritually, mentally and physically.”


Award-Winning VIVA!SM Programming by Pathway to Living®

It’s all part of the philosophy designed by Aspired Living’s parent company, Pathway to Living®.

Since 1997, Pathway to Living has been helping older adults fulfill dreams and accomplish goals – every day. This network of communities believes that seniors are looking for a helper to guide them down their path, not stand in their way. They designed their group of communities to be for a new generation of senior living, with a tailored wellness program accompanied with a vibrant and inspirational way of living … known as VIVA! SM

“VIVA! is the award-winning philosophy that values every stage of life and focuses on an overall sense of well-being,” says Terri. “VIVA! is at the forefront of everything we do at Aspired Living of La Grange. It’s a way of life that inspires a sense of meaning and purpose. We simply believe that every year of your life should be the best year yet; no goal or dream is too big, lofty or far-fetched to reach.”


Built with Today’s Senior in Mind

The community has 116 apartments in total, with 84 Assisted Living apartments and 34 Memory Support studios. All lifestyles enjoy a worry-free, maintenance-free lifestyle that allows residents to live as independently as possible, whether they are in active Independent Living or Memory Support.

Aspired Living® is all about creating an environment that is ahead of the curve in wellness, fitness, spirituality, technology and preventative care. As the times and technology are changing, so are we. Residents and their families, along with a Resident Care Manager, will meticulously build a wellness plan that addresses medicine distribution, fitness objectives, nutrition needs and socialization goals. The Be Well Fitness Center is equipped with state-of-the-art machines that have been designed specifically for older adults. There is also a therapy gym with physical, occupational speech therapies available.

The dining at Aspired Living is unparalleled – in fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if you mistook it for a meal from a five-star restaurant. Craving a simpler meal? The Prairie Grass Bistro offers lighter fare that’s just as delicious. Dine inside in style, or head outside for outdoor terrace dining – your choice.

Our community has so many amenities to enrich the lives of our residents and help them live well, age well, be well each and every day. Our community life room has a demonstration kitchen perfect for cooking classes and entertainment. The Oakwood Library and Technology Center allows seniors to stay in touch with friends and family, surf the web and learn all sorts of techy skills to keep them ahead of the technology curve.

Want to pamper yourself or relax a bit? The Santosa Salon and Spa will leave you feeling like a million bucks, whether you want to get your hair done or unwind in the private massage and relaxation suite. Prefer to get out and enjoy nature? Our outdoor courtyards have walking paths, beautiful gardens and a gorgeous gazebo where you can enjoy the beauty of nature. Film buffs will enjoy our in-house Twin Lakes movie Theatre, while artists can ply their trade with ArtPATH programming at our art studio.

“We’re excited to welcome you to our innovative new community,” says Terri. “We want you to be inspired about life here, and our team is eager to guide you on the path you want to live. Whether you’re looking to enjoy the city you call home, exploring new venues, spending time with old friends, or spearheading a program of your own, this is your time to live the life you want with the luxury you deserve.”
