Over the past three weeks, in two phases, King-Bruwaert House has moved current residents into the new Martin Jahn Nursing Pavilion from other units in its historic Manor Home. New residents to the KBH community also now call the pavilion home as they have joined the current residents that have made the move. The pavilion consists of two, state-of-the art skilled nursing neighborhoods with each including a mom’s kitchen for cooking activities and residential and family use, dining room, activity room, living room, nurse’s station, and 13 suites each. All suites, except one per neighborhood, are private with spacious bedrooms and private ensuite bathrooms. Also, each neighborhood houses one semi-private suite which may provide an option for couples wishing to reside together.
King-Bruwaert House builds upon its 90-year history of providing quality and compassionate care to seniors in the Chicagoland area with the opening of the pavilion. “The Martin Jahn Nursing Pavilion is a great example of how KBH continually invests into the community and provides tremendous amenities for its residents,” stated Andy Beltz, Sr. Director of Marketing and External Communications. “The Pavilion, as part of our current campus expansion, will help KBH continue to be the gold standard of Life Plan Communities in the Chicagoland area.”
Also, part of the campus expansion is the upcoming luxury independent living apartment homes in The Gardens. The Gardens will consist of 43 apartment homes with new community spaces including a restaurant, lounge with bar, game room, fitness center, and more. The Gardens is slated to open in Spring of 2024 and the majority of the apartments are already reserved. The Gardens will offer a new independent living option in conjunction with KBH’s Woods Cottages, on KBH’s campus in Burr Ridge, and its Godair Park duplexes located in Hinsdale.
The residents that will live in The Gardens are excited to make their upcoming move but are already considered members of the community enjoying the same benefits as those living at KBH. “As a recent widow and long-term caregiver, my decision to move to The Gardens has brought enormous peace of mind not only to my life but that of my entire family,” stated Joan Geary of Hinsdale. “The knowledge that KBH will provide all of my future needs, both socially and medically, is such a relief for us all. The KBH Staff’s undisputed reputation for loving, respectful care and concern in all areas of operation is legendary. What a Joy this decision has been!”
King-Bruwaert House is a non-profit charitable organization that provides care to seniors aged 60 and better through independent and assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing.
