Alzheimer’s and Memory Care

Nestled among the trees, Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care formerly known as The Scottish Home provides a beautiful backdrop for you to lead a fulfilling and stress-free life. The five-acre campus is located in the North Riverside Forest Preserve, just a few miles west of downtown Chicago.

For those who are interested in an Assisted Living-style environment, we offer Sheltered Care, which includes all of the conveniences, services and amenities typically associated with Assisted Living communities, plus a nurse on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

At our legacy building, the Scottish Home, you can choose from two lifestyle options within Sheltered Care, depending on how much help you desire or how many tasks you’d like assistance with. Those requiring less help can schedule assistance with daily tasks like bathing or medication management if and when they are needed. For those needing extra support, we also provide on-demand services like wellness checks, assistance with daily life activities and escorts to meals.

Our flexible approach to assisted living allows many people to age in place longer.
