Recipient of the Highest Awards for Quality Care

Buckingham Pavilion was one of the nation’s first nursing homes to be listed by U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT as Best Nursing Homes in America.

We have been privileged to care for the families of some of the most respected individuals in the fields of health care, geriatrics, and patient advocacy, including the Director of the Council of Senior Citizens, our Congresswoman, Chicago’s Chief of Police, Alderman and countless Physicians. Many owners and operators of hospitals, nursing homes, and home care agencies have chosen Buckingham Pavilion’s enriched environment for their own care. Shouldn’t you?

When choosing a nursing home for yourself or a loved one, you want to make sure that the facility that you are considering is one that will make you feel at home. Buckingham Pavilion is a state-of-the-art facility that offers residents just this. Our staff pride themselves in developing personal relationships with our residents.

Ever since we first opened our doors at Buckingham Pavilion the focus of our staff and leadership has been to provide a personalized, high level of quality care. Our founders, Maurice and Margaret Stern, believed that a nursing home should be just that, a home for people that need personalized care.

You will find our residents participating in group exercise classes, joining other residents in a game of cards, or even taking in a live performance from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Symphonette. With a large slate of events and activities offered each day, the only difficulty is deciding exactly what you want to do each day!

Buckingham Pavilion does assisted living a little bit different than other nursing homes that you may come across. Our assisted living plus program provides residents with the independence and quality of life that assisted living offers, but also includes on staff nurses available twenty four, seven. This eliminates much of the worry and concern that additional independence can bring by having a safety net that is always available to assist you.

Buckingham Pavilion’s memory care programs strive to give residents affected by dementia and Alzheimer’s better control over their own lives on a daily basis.

If you are interested in a nursing facility in Chicago that treats residents as if they are their own family, then look no further than Buckingham Pavilion. While you can view our image gallery, we believe that nothing beats seeing and meeting our staff in person.
