Welcome to Wickshire Wilmette

At Wickshire Senior Living, it’s not about age. It’s about life. Located in a residential neighborhood in the Village of Wilmette, Illinois, our intimate community has a charming elegance with a distinctive bed and breakfast look and feel, featuring a comfortable porch, patio, and garden—perfect for relaxation with friends and neighbors. Our quaint community prioritizes residents’ safety and well-being with a completely secured building, 24-hour nursing, and weekly music therapy. With fewer than 35 residents, we focus on providing each resident with highly individualized care and attention.

With Memory Care experts on staff and a commitment to seniors with cognitive function disorders, Wickshire is a place where an older adult with dementia or Alzheimer’s can age safely while still providing daily purpose and moments of success. Memory Care is the option for those who need a safe environment surrounded by peers, encouraging associates, and a multitude of options for finding and nurturing purpose.

Learn more about dementia

Dementia is not a single disease; it’s an overall term, like heart disease, that covers a wide range of specific medical conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease. Dementia is a disorder of the brain that causes an individual to experience declining cognitive ability that can become severe enough to impair daily life and independent function.

When is it time?

When considering Memory Care options for your loved one, there are questions you can ask yourself to help provide clues as to when it’s time.

WSL Approach to Care

Wickshire Wilmette specializes in caring for people with dementia and we’ve developed very effective methods of understanding and engaging with individuals experiencing memory issues. The Artistry of Moments is a comprehensive training system incorporating Teepa Snow’s GEMs model and the Montessori approach to programming.
