This 95-unit senior independent-living community in the Chicago suburb of Melrose Park offers 1 and 2 bedroom apartments at affordable rents, with 84 of the units available to very low income individuals and families. Melrose Commons’ apartments are located on a "continuum of care" campus where seniors can move from full independence to assisted living within one location, helping to address an increasingly important niche housing need. The campus includes a senior condominium building, an independent living building and an assisted living facility to enhance on-site housing options for seniors. Amenities include a community space, laundry facilities, prepared meals and educational programs provided by Westlake Hospital and other service providers in the area.
