About The Auberge at Highland Park

The Auberge at Highland Park is a Memory Care community that provides exceptional person-centered holistic care to residents.

Located in the heart of Lake County near the downtown area, our community features a scenic and safe environment for all residents. Whether your loved one is moving in from Deerfield, Northbrook, Glencoe, Lake Forest, or anywhere else, they’ll feel right at home at The Auberge.

When your loved one moves into The Auberge, they’ll see the difference for themselves on day one. Our staff will make them feel right at home with community introductions and regular check-ins.

As your loved one settles in, they’ll experience immersion and engagement through our award-winning SPARK program. This program helps memory care residents remain stimulated and engaged through regular activities. They’ll experience this program themselves when they attend a monthly town hall meeting, engage in a Lifelong Learning exercise, or simply enjoy a social happy hour.

But most importantly, the right new home for your loved one should look after their wellbeing. Our skilled nursing staff remains onsite 24/7 to ensure residential safety and health. We’ll arrange any trips to the doctor’s office, coordinate health care plans with partner providers, and provide medication management when necessary.

We believe your loved one’s stay in a senior living community should be an elevated experience. You’ll learn all about what our community offers and how your loved one fits into during a free tour and consultation. Schedule your visit with an Auberge representative today to see the community’s magic yourself!

Mind, Body & Soul

Healthy living includes the mind, body, and spirit, and our caregivers work every day to help residents live a healthy lifestyle. 

Our community includes daily exercise classes with other residents so they can stay fit and limber. And when they just want to get the blood flowing, we offer abundant outdoor opportunities for a brisk walk through the lovely surrounding area. 

Additionally, Lifelong Learning – as part of our signature SPARK program – provides residents with a source of continued growth. They may hear from guest speakers, attend small and large group crafts, or engage in painting programs and interactive lectures. These programs are essential for stimulating the mind as well as the body. 

Religion is essential to many of our staff and residents – and we’re happy to welcome all denominations. We offer dedicated space for various services, gatherings, and other interests to review, read, sing, discuss, or otherwise fulfill your desire to seek or pursue a warm and familiar experience.

While dealing with the struggle of finding a safe place for my grandmother, Auberge's atmosphere and staff really helped. The warmth that you feel when you enter is the same feeling when I would visit grandma. The moment I walked in, I knew she was going to be in good hands, and very satisfied with our decision!
