Each apartment features a fully applianced kitchen, dining area, living room, private bath and bedroom. Some apartments have balconies, while others feature a second bedroom or den. All apartments are equipped with an emergency call system and are phone and cable ready.

Our Activities Program includes entertaining, educational, cultural and spiritual offerings. Many events are hosted at The Park Danforth, while other activities can be enjoyed by venturing off our campus to the city’s center or the waterfront. Travel in your own vehicle or leave the driving to us and enjoy our fully equipped van.

The excitement is building as we unveil our newest plans for our 2016 expansion, which should be finished in December. Construction is underway for 58 new apartments on the corner of Arbor and Forest, on our newly expanded grounds.

The construction also includes a renovation to one wing of the current first floor to create a Main Street that will offer shopping, a bistro and pub, media room, hair salon and much more! A truly unique living environment awaits you at The Park Danforth.

“It was a great relief to have my Dad settled in at The Park Danforth. Both staff and residents are friendly and welcoming, creating a family atmosphere. My Father loved it right away. I am more relaxed knowing that he can socialize every day without going out, and that other people are watching out for him. I know it’s a clich, but I wish he had moved in sooner!” Anne L. IL Daughter

“We visited several Senior communities in the area. Once we met the staff at The Park Danforth our decision was made. The Staff at The Park Danforth is beyond helpful. It is a tremendous relief not to worry about my parents constantly, and for them to be out of the isolation of living alone in their own home. The greatest gift for me is that I can be their daughter again.” Michelle K. AL Daughter.

“The Park Danforth is a safe haven for my Mother. It is such a relief to know that she is well taken care of and in a friendly place where people care about her. I am so grateful that Mom is able to live in such a wonderful place!” Susie K. AL Daughter
