Our elders have the potential for a great future!

Award-winning privately-operated Buckingham Pavilion is among the finest geriatric facilities in the state of Illinois. Opened in 1974 in Chicago, they identify, address, and meet the needs of the aging population in the least institutional-like environment possible. They achieve this through quality rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and personalized programs which provide an optimal level of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being while promoting dignity and independence. Room amenities include furnished units, bathrooms, cable television, daily housekeeping, individual controlled air and heating, emergency call system, multi-position electric beds, and laundry service. Some pets are allowed. Buckingham Pavilion accommodates all levels of care and has become the preferred home for many healthcare professionals, senior advocates, and community officials in Illinois.

Our cherished seniors benefit from comprehensive patient care, individualized treatment, and innovative resident programming from the nurturing staff that creates a quality of life that is unmatched. Residents achieve their highest level of function quickly and efficiently. Alzheimer’s Care/Dementia Care focuses on strengths rather than weaknesses. Each resident receives a personalized plan of care with an ongoing assessment of changing needs. Family support groups and regular meetings keep everyone updated on progress. The Alzheimer Alternative Care Program helps residents elevate their cognitive functions, motor skills and learning through activities, and exercises. Spiritual needs are led by clergy of all faiths. The Assisted Living Plus Program offers the benefit of a nurse on staff 24-7 and help with bathing, grooming, and dressing. Rehab Services treat orthopedic, neurological, and cardiovascular conditions and include Physical, Speech, and Occupational Therapy. Hospice/Palliative Care is contracted with the finest hospice organizations in the Chicago area.

Nutritious meals are custom planned by a registered dietician and activities include in-house performances by chamber musicians, theater groups, dance groups, and art appreciation by the Art Institute. How Divine! Facility amenities include a Gift Shop, Movie Theater, Library, Health Club, Beauty Parlor, Ice Cream Parlor, Arts and Crafts Studio, and Private Kitchen and Bakery. The Continuing Education Program with Truman College, one of the first in the country, had one-third of the residents receiving diplomas in the first graduating class and all with an average age of 82! We applaud you!
