    Wish You Were Here!

    The Danish Home is more than a retirement community; it is a family. All residents, from all levels of care, dine together and engage in activities that foster close bonds quickly. For decades, The Danish Home has been a cultural center and historical icon for Danish-American people and organizations in the Chicagoland area. Our festive annual events are akin to extended family picnics and celebrations, bringing together people of all ages and creating lifelong memories.

    While our building and operations have undergone several improvements over the years, with more on the near horizon, our dedication to the values we’ve held since our founding in 1891 remains. Learn more about our new, redesigned healthcare apartments that are now available!
