Springtime is (finally) arriving here in Chicagoland! There’s nothing quite like the excitement of a refreshing change, whether it’s a new meteorological season or a new life season. If you are ready to invest in resort-style assisted living, we are celebrating this exciting change with you.

One of the best parts about living at Summit of Uptown, aside from the amenities, new friendships, and additional sets of helping hands, is the number of apartment options available. You are sure to find that one of our spacious apartments is the perfect place to call home.

Here are just a few of our favorite assisted living apartment options, which are newly renovated and looking better than ever.

One-Bedroom Deluxe

Choosing to downsize to assisted living does not mean you have to downsize your style or taste. Our one-bedroom deluxe option gives you plenty of space to decorate, but without the extra household chores that go along with it. At approximately 750 square feet, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment also features plenty of storage and natural light. 

We love the kitchenette and eat-in dining room space, which gives you all the room you’ll need to entertain a few of your favorite guests. The living room area also has more than enough room for a recliner and sofa, along with a television. Your new bedroom features two closets, while the bathroom also has a large closet. There’s plenty of storage room, which is a must for many of our residents.


Our studio apartment is the perfect option if you are planning on spending most of your time enjoying the rest of our campus, including our outdoor spaces, library, and living rooms. Our studio apartment is 410 square feet, which includes necessities such as a kitchenette and storage closet. 

A small table fits perfectly near the kitchenette countertop, and you’ll still have room for a favorite recliner or couch. Even better, the space feels much larger thanks to the natural light that streams through the window near the bedroom area.


Our biggest option, at 820 square feet, is our one-bedroom plan. You’ll love the additional storage closet right off the entrance, which is the perfect place for your coat, umbrella, and even seasonal decor. The kitchenette gives you all the space you need to prepare a quick snack or store your leftovers from the restaurant outing you attended earlier in the day.

The living room and bedroom both feature large windows, which increase the natural light in your home. Both are similar sizes, creating a large entertainment area in the living room and a large retreat for yourself in the bedroom. The bathroom features a closet large enough for your clothes and linens.

Decorating Your Space

When you’ve chosen your new home here at Summit, it is then time to decide what to bring along that will make it your own. Though you may not be able to fit all of your furniture in your new apartment, you can certainly express your style by bringing along your favorite living room and bedroom furniture, as well as decorations and art to hang on the walls or tuck onto your coffee table.

Helpful Reminders

Summit was designed for seniors just like you. Remember that you can entertain guests in your apartment or anywhere else throughout our vibrant community. Invite friends to enjoy a meal with you in the dining room, attend a live music concert with you down the hall, or have a cup of coffee with you in the living room. Our staff is here to help make our residents and their guests feel welcome.

Finally, all of our apartment options in assisted living are ideal for single seniors or senior companions. If there are two of you moving into the same apartment, you’ll both still have plenty of room.

Ready to see our renovated apartments in person? Call the team at Summit to schedule a tour. It’s the perfect time of year — complete with perfect Chicagoland weather — to stop by for a visit, a meal, or a personal tour.
