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.
