The Oaks at Bartlett reduces entrance fee and monthly service fees; senior living community plans enhancements and upgrades in 2024

The Oaks at Bartlett, a nonprofit life care plan retirement community with Independent Living cottages, apartments and continuing care services, has introduced a new, nonrefundable entrance fee plan for future resident prospects. In addition, as part of the new plan, future residents will enjoy competitive, market-rate monthly service fees.

“We are one of only a few life care plan retirement communities in the Chicago area offering this nonrefundable model, which will distinguish us from others in the region,” said Joan Peterson, executive director of The Oaks at Bartlett.

The Oaks at Bartlett offers 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartment homes, as well as cottages ranging from 625 square feet to 1600 square feet. The new, nonrefundable fee is based on the size of the unit and will average $125,000. The new monthly service fee will start at approximately $3,700 for new residents, which includes dining, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, a 24-hour emergency response system and paid utilities. Additionally, residents have priority access to The Oaks’ elevated care communities, as well as a lifetime total of 20 free days of entry-level elevated care for unexpected health care needs as residents age.

“As one of the region’s top senior living communities, we’ve created an active, engaging community where residents have peace of mind that their future is taken care of; it’s carefree living at its finest,” Peterson added.

The Oaks at Bartlett features top-tier amenities including fitness centers, a pool, beauty salon, a full calendar of events and activities, and an on-site chapel with a diverse range of spiritual services.

In 2024, The Oaks at Bartlett plans enhancements to the aesthetic of its buildings and grounds, as well as the functionality of its shared spaces. Current plans include new fresh flooring and paint throughout the main level; more engaging and fun programming, events and activities; and higher quality food and beverage.

“Improving our living spaces and the quality of the services we deliver will provide residents with a more fulfilling and engaging retirement,” Peterson continued. “Our ultimate goal is to drive the community’s mission forward and help ensure The Oaks at Bartlett remains a thriving community asset that meets the needs of seniors for generations to come,” she concluded.
