Orland Park, just outside of the Chicago metropolitan area, is a beautiful suburb with many senior living opportunities. One of these living options are assisted living facilities; special locations that offer the freedom of independent living, but offer assistance to residents. Assistance can vary depending on the individual, but common needs such as preparing meals/eating, housekeeping, assisting with medication, are common. Even though seniors who are in assisted living facilities need help with activities of daily living (ADLs), they still want to be in a place where there are things to do outside of the facility. When seeking an Assisted Living Facility, Orland Park is the place to be.
