More people than ever are choosing to move to continuing care retirement communities (CCRC). These communities provide residents with enrichment and social activities and are designed to help with activities of daily living when needed. Moving to a CCRC does not hinder independence; it enhances it! As one of the top independent living communities in Chicago, Montgomery Place offer a wide variety of services to help you live independently within our community. Experience tells us that transportation options are one of the most important services that a CCRC can offer.
Why Transportation Is An Important Service
In an independent living community, you are able to come and go as you please. At Montgomery Place, you’re welcome to bring your own car, or you can choose to forego it as we offer assisted transportation to our community. By providing transportation services, we help you maintain independence to shop, visit nearby attractions, or spend time offsite with your neighbors.
How To Recognize High-Quality Transportation Services
High quality independent living transportation services can be difficult to identify. Here are a few questions to ask when considering transportation options:
Is transportation offered regularly?
Are the drivers certified to operate all of the vehicles?
Does the shuttle bus have a wheelchair lift?
Can residents schedule special transportation when needed?
What types of outings are planned by the community?
Are the vehicles well maintained?
Once you have done some research, you will feel more confident that the transportation services offered by us are exceptional. We offer transportation for a wide variety of reasons so you can live a full, engaged lifestyle.
Being nestled in the heart of Hyde Park, we know that some older adults may value the ease of transportation assistance to avoid the frustration of traffic and parking.
If you don’t like driving, our staff makes regular trips to various locations throughout Hyde Park and the surrounding area. This service is included in your lease, so you are able to take as many trips as you want each week. We also plan group trips to concerts, museums, and theaters so that you can enjoy our beautiful location.
Here at Montgomery Place, we also offer underground parking spaces if you own your own vehicle for an additional monthly fee.
