Balmoral Care Center —
where caring is more than just a word
The Balmoral Care Center is part of the senior living options available at Lake Forest Place, and is home to those who need short- or long-term care. Residents of neighboring communities on Chicago’s North Shore can also benefit from services here. For some, it's a short stay for rehabilitation following hospitalization.
For others, it's a decision to receive more specialized skilled nursing or memory care. Since Lake Forest Place is a continuing care retirement community, residents can receive care at The Balmoral Care Center while a spouse or loved one remains in their independent living or assisted living residence.

Presbyterian Homes and the Balmoral Care Center have embraced a philosophy of interacting with residents, called Person-Centered Care. We agree to honor the choices, preferences and abilities of all residents, whether in an apartment or in our health care community.
Quality of care is as important as quality of life
At the Balmoral Care Center, we blend close supervision with the latest technology to keep residents safe and secure. Our campus has 24-hour security with cameras at each entryway and in public areas. Our commitment to continually enhance the quality of our services and programs, and to focus on the satisfaction of the residents who choose to live in our communities, is further reflected by our accredited status from CARF. Our staff is Medicare-certified in skilled nursing and home health services, and we are proud that the Balmoral Care Center has earned five-star ratings from www.Medicare.gov.
Our commitment to continually enhance our reputation for extraordinary care comes from paying very close attention to the quality of life for our patients and to the concerns and questions of their families.
Our health care services include:
- Medical Services
Medical services are led by a full-time medical director, who is a board-certified internist with extensive training in geriatrics. He makes an important contribution to the delivery of care at the Balmoral Care Center.
- On-Staff Physicians
When you come to the Balmoral Care Center, you can continue with the services of your physician or choose to see one of ours. In addition to our own medical director, we have an affiliation with a physician who sees residents as needed in our well-staffed clinic.
- Rehabilitation Services
The Balmoral Care Center offers one of the most progressive rehabilitation programs in the area. Complete rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational and speech therapy, are available on campus. Aquatic therapy is offered in the warm-water therapy pool in the Fitness and Therapeutic Center. In addition, a full-time rehabilitation nurse coordinates care between nursing and rehabilitation.
- Professional Nursing Care
Our professional nursing staff is specialized in the care of older adults. Registered nurses are on duty on each floor, 24 hours a day. They lead an interdisciplinary team in delivering resident care, which may include medication, rehabilitation and nutrition.
- Restorative Nursing
A rehabilitation nurse leads this program, working with a team to address the specific restorative needs of residents. A nursing assistant works daily with the resident to continue exercises and strengthening techniques.
- Home Health Services
We provide an array of services designed to continue your rehabilitation after hospitalization or a stay in health care, and to strengthen your independence as you recover at home. Services include skilled nursing from registered nurses, and rehabilitation therapy from physical, occupational and speech therapists as ordered by your physician.
- Supportive Services
Our full-time social workers and chaplains are available for social, emotional and spiritual support.
