Delnor Glen offers resort-like amenities for seniors


A beautifully furnished apartment, three meals a day served restaurant-style in an elegant dining room, a choice of activities and entertainment that includes a trip to the pool and health and wellness center, an hour of personal assistance a day … it sounds like a luxury resort or an all inclusive vacation destination, but it’s just an “average day” at Delnor Glen Senior Living.

Delnor Glen is located on North Fifth Ave. in St. Charles. On the site of the original Delnor Hospital, the historic red brick building sits back among mature trees and beautifully landscaped grounds. There is often a warm fire in the fireplace in the well-appointed lobby which serves as a living room for residents and families who enjoy visiting there. The Concierge is friendly and helpful. The wicker porch off the lobby is bright and sunny ... where many residents enjoy the morning paper or happy hour before dinner.

Each resident or guest at Delnor Glen has a private apartment with a full private bath. Studios, one and two bedroom apartments are available, each with a unique floor plan and character. The apartments have efficiency kitchens that include a sink, refrigerator and a microwave.

For residents who are enjoying a short-term stay (one night up to two months offered at a reasonable daily rate) the apartments are beautifully furnished and include bed linens and towels. Those who have made Delnor Glen their permanent home (leased annually) bring their own furniture and decorations so that it truly feels like their own.

Included in the daily or monthly rate is an hour of personal assistance per day (or 30 hours per month). This can include medication reminders, escorts to and from meals and activities, and hands-on assistance or supervision with personal care activities such as bathing or getting dressed. Nurses are available during the day to address health and medical concerns.

Activities and outings are scheduled throughout the day to encourage exercise and socialization. Residents are welcome to entertain their friends and family from the community and can reserve the private dining room, a meeting room or sitting area. Other amenities include a beauty and barber shop, a wellness office that is used for physician visits and exams, conveniently located laundry facilities and weekly housekeeping services.

For residents who need more supervision due to dementia, Delnor Glen has a small secure community on the garden level. A separate living area and fifteen studio apartments are dedicated to residents with memory and cognitive impairments. The staff that cares for these Fifth Avenue residents provide activities and assistance designed to help them maintain their dignity and independence as long as possible.
