About Our Lake Forest Retirement Community
Where the good life gets even better.
Quality matters. It matters in where you live, how you live, and in the relationships with the people around you.
Quality is built into every aspect of life at Lake Forest Place. You’ll see it in the craftsmanship of your residence and the way our 60-acre campus is landscaped and maintained. You’ll taste it in the food and experience it in the many opportunities to learn and try new things. And you’ll find it in the friendships you build with your neighbors and the people who work here.
When you’re ready to add to your quality of life, you’re ready for Lake Forest Place.
“One could get up in the morning and be busy all day long. There’s something offered for every sort of person. You’ve got choices, so many things to do, and it’s wonderful.”
Services and Amenities
How did Presbyterian Homes go about handling COVID-19?
Because we enacted an early response to COVID-19, we’ve minimized its effects and adapted in ways that have let residents get back to enjoying their exceptional lifestyles.
Does a person need to be Presbyterian to live in a Presbyterian Homes community?
No, all of our communities are non-sectarian, and no religious affiliation is necessary. We respect all faith traditions.
Presbyterian Homes is a not-for-profit organization. Why should this be important to me?
Not-for-profit communities are guided by a strong mission and put people before profits. Instead of pleasing stockholders, our Board of Directors and employees focus on pleasing residents. In addition, any proceeds not needed for expenses are reinvested in the community.
Presbyterian Homes offers financial assistance. What does this mean?
If a resident who has signed a Life Plan Residence Agreement outlives their assets (through no fault of their own), they will be eligible to receive financial assistance from the Geneva Foundation, the benevolent arm of Presbyterian Homes.
Will I need to give all my assets to Presbyterian Homes?
Absolutely not. Each resident maintains control of his or her assets. We now offer many financial options to meet a potential resident’s budget.
When am I entitled to a refund of my refundable entrance fee?
We offer a number of options including a 30-day refund option and a 1-year guaranteed refund option. Otherwise, refunds are typically paid once a resident leaves the community, and once their residence has been resold and we have received a replacement entrance fee.
Will we own our residence?
The “equity” in your residence is limited by your potential refund. Presbyterian Homes retains official title, so if you move to assisted living or healthcare, it is a convenient and seamless process that does not require you or your family to “sell” your previous residence.
