“How delighted I am to write this letter of testimony for living at Clare Oaks. My husband, Charlie, and I visited the convent in 2002 when the Sisters first announced the inception of a retirement community. My twin daughters lived in Bartlett for many years, so I was aware of the Immaculate Convent of The Sisters of St. Joseph.
My husband was impressed with the planned community, but not quite ready to move from Arlington Heights. However, after his death, I realized it was the proper and logical thing for me to do. Construction of the community took time, but I was among the first to move in April 2008.
My apartment is very comfortable with a separate washer and dryer, which is available in all apartments. My children are very pleased I chose to come to Clare Oaks where I am well cared for. This has become my Shangri-La and I heartily testify to the excellent staff who dispense loving care.”
