Built with care. To care for those we love.
Rooted in deep traditions established by Chicago Scots – a vital Scottish cultural society and the oldest nonprofit in Illinois –Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care provides excellent care across a full continuum, steeped in the Scottish values of authenticity, warmth, tradition and community. The feeling of home here extends well beyond the threshold. Turning off the busy main street, the quiet drive into Caledonia offers an immediate feeling of relief, hustle and bustle replaced with bird song and sunshine. The path opens to a clearing amongst the trees, where the grounds are dotted with flowers, thistle and wildlife.

The Scottish Home
Our legacy building the Scottish Home evokes a country manor with its warm mahogany woodwork, rich wool tartan carpet and prominent, historic oil paintings. As part of our ongoing commitment to reimagining tradition, we will begin a major renovation and redesign of this historic space later this year.
Surrounding the Scottish Home is the Red, Red Rose Garden, named after a poem by Scotland’s own Robert Burns. This beautiful path provides the ideal place to stroll through nature’s ever-changing palette or to enjoy the company of others under the arbor.
The Caledonian House
Designed to feel warm and comfortable, a true home to everyone who lives there, the Caledonian House features a Great Room where activities take place around the heart of the home. An open kitchen where all meals are prepared family-style fills the air with aromas of home cooking.
Here you will find large, private suites with en-suite bathrooms featuring European-style showers for increased dignity, a large patio for socializing and barbecuing, and screened-in porches from which to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
