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.

“Celebrating the Power of Our Community: Valuing Friendship and Family“

Mariae School’s Danish Big Band, Bjornson Male Chorus, the “Hiking Viking” Bruce Bro, Danish General Consul Jakob Skaarup Nielsen, and some special surprises!

This year, we are offering special sponsorship opportunities through the end of August 2021, which you can pay quarterly for convenience, if you choose. As something new for 2020, we’re asking you to direct your $150 ticket purchase – or any amount you choose – toward specific projects or areas to help The Danish Home Foundation and residents. They include:
- The Living Room – The “front door” of The Danish Home and one of the most-used spaces by residents, friends and family for worship services, movie nights, informal gatherings, meetings, and much more.
- Resident Outings – As soon as it is deemed safe, we will resume residents’ weekly outings to area parks, holiday light displays, grocery shopping, museums, the zoo, and other visits.
- Where Most Needed – Help us upgrade our Health Care suites with private bathrooms; support our residents running low on resources; and all those “little things” that come up unexpectedly.
