About Our Senior Living Community in Chicago
A family of care and excellence.
Backed by the strength and experience of Smith Senior Living, Smith Village has been the leader in premier senior living in Chicago, Illinois. Since 1924, Smith Village serves seniors in southwest Chicago with a stellar reputation for outstanding care and service. Smith Village is the only Life Plan Community in the Beverly area, and only one of two in the southwest sector of metro Chicago — the other being our sister community, Smith Crossing, in Orland Park.
That means along with exceptional residential services, residents will always have access to a full continuum of comprehensive senior health care services if they should ever need them, right on our beautiful Smith Village campus.
It’s all part of our unwavering mission as a not-for-profit organization. Our primary purpose is to enrich lives and create an environment in which individuals thrive and make the most of every day through the highest quality of services and thoughtful innovations.
Benefits of a not-for-profit organization
Being a not-for-profit organization assures you that everything we do, and every decision we make, is based on improving the lives of residents, their families and the community we serve.
That means all income is invested directly back into services and management of Smith Senior Living communities. Rather than answering to an anonymous group of investors, we hold ourselves accountable to residents and their family members, to the Beverly community, and to each other. We believe it’s this higher standard that has created and supports a resident-centered culture.
Thanks to philanthropic support and a well-managed endowment that sustain its superior quality of services, Smith Senior Living remains vital, even during lean financial years. This financial security further enhances peace of mind for residents and their families.
Enhance the life you love close to family and friends.
Independent senior living in Chicago at Smith Village is everything the name implies — freedom. Without the headaches and hassles of home maintenance, appliance repairs, yardwork and shoveling snow — even changing lightbulbs — you’ll have the time and energy to do all the things you love while discovering new passions.
