RESIDENT LIFE

Life at The Danish Home is so much more than comfortable accommodations, quality health care and great food. It’s dynamic, engaged living each and every day, with daily activities, frequent outings to places like the top of the John Hancock building, the Art Institute of Chicago and other exciting attractions, and events open to residents, their families, and neighbors in Norwood Park. The Danish Home is a cultural institution known for its ties to the Danish-American community in Chicagoland and generations of people dedicated to its life and legacy.

Mads Tolling: We’ll Meet Again! A Live, Virtual Concert! OPEN TO ALL!
Thursday, May 21, 4:30-5:30pm
Join us for a live, virtual concert from two-time Grammy Award-winning violinist and composer Mads Tolling! Performing for residents, family and friends of The Danish Home – and all who enjoy world-class music – the Danish-American virtuoso wows with his fresh, jazzy take on the classic songs we love. This special event reminds us that while we are apart, we are still close in spirit and heart.

Donors giving $100-$250 to The Danish Home will receive an autographed copy of one of Mads Tolling’s CDs, either “Playing the 60s” or “Celebrating Svend Asmussen.” Donors of $250 will receive both CDs as a special thank you.
