Independence, security & choice!

The Commons

Independent Living Plus

Life at The Commons in Central Baptist Village is relaxing, worry-free and inspired by your passions and curiosity. Each day is yours to spend just the way you want, with the activities and experiences you choose. Learn the centuries-old art of paper quilling, visit the Art Institute or the Pritzker Military Museum, join a dance class or exercise in the fitness center, linger over a leisurely dinner with friends and then wind down in the fireside lounge.

Independence and choice extends to your home at The Commons. Select from among six, distinctive apartment styles—all freshly renovated, including brand-new kitchens and baths.

“Special Offer: Move into The Commons by June 30, 2021 and your first month is FREE!

We call it Independent Living Plus because of the incredible amenities and rich, full lifestyle, but also for the security and confidence that come from having an array of customized supportive services if, or when, you need them.

Our Wellness Clinic is open six days a week, staffed by a registered nurse, and residents have priority access to the continuum of care, including three tiers of memory support, short-term rehabilitation and licensed skilled nursing.
