Thinking about moving out of your home into a retirement living community, or elsewhere, can be a difficult yet exciting step to take.
Perhaps you want to be even more carefree in retirement. Finally let go of all home maintenance. Cook only when you (really) feel like it. And do the things you want while easily connecting with people in a welcoming community.
Whatever your reasons, the time is right to start planning. Having been home to thousands of people from Evanston, the suburbs, and from other areas of the country in our 125-year history,

Relax knowing you don’t have to take care of everything anymore. You now have a regular housekeeper, and enjoy fine dining or casual fare in our two restaurants. Weekly transportation takes you shopping – these and many more regular services are included in your monthly fee.

Life Care: Your Healthcare Safety Net
As a Life Plan community, Three Crowns Park also offers a program called Life Care. This is the financial benefit of living here and is available to residents who are healthy and independent.
You’ve saved, you’ve planned financially, you may even have insurance products in place already. So why choose moving to Three Crowns Park with Life Care when you could stay at home?
Here’s why: Your free and independent lifestyle not only stays the same, but improves because any worry that you may have about paying for future healthcare for either yourself or your spouse is completely relieved.
The Life Care program is offered through three financial options and guarantees you quality care – and access to that care – from day one.
Unlimited Future Care without Added Expense
To sum it up, Life Care at Three Crowns Park:
- Provides the peace of mind knowing that your financial investment guarantees you care for life at a predictable monthly fee
- Guarantees residency for life
- Protects your estate from the potentially high cost of long term care
Flexible Financial Options
Choose the investment option that is right for you, with three plans that let you stay in control of your money.
As a Life Plan Community offering the financial benefits of Life Care, you pay a one-time Entrance Fee and a Monthly Service Fee (based on the apartment style you select).
All services, amenities, and long-term healthcare are included under our Type A Residency Agreements. The only difference is the amount of refundability.
90 PERCENT REFUNDABLE (Higher Entrance Fee)
This high refundability option gives you the flexibility to move away, if you choose, and be refunded 90 percent of your entrance fee to roll into a new living arrangement. It also provides peace of mind of leaving something in your estate should you decide to permanently live at Three Crowns Park.
50 PERCENT REFUNDABILITY (Lower Monthly Fee)
This option assures that 50 percent of the entrance fee is refunded should you decide to move away, and has a lower monthly service fee than the two other options.
TRADITIONAL (Lower Entrance Fee)
To enable you to retain some of your assets to invest or spend as you would normally, the entrance fee in this contract “spends down” six percent your first month with us, and two percent each month thereafter. After 48 months, the refundability reaches zero, with no refund back to you or your estate.
A NOTE FOR COUPLES
Couples that come to Three Crowns Park are offered full Life Care benefits for two people with a reduced second person Entrance Fee and Monthly Fee.
Live In a True Neighborhood
Evanston, Illinois, is considered one of America’s great neighborhoods. An exceptional location that is lively, engaging and multi-generational, Three Crowns Park’s optimum location delivers the best of suburban and city living just steps outside your door.
Nestled on a seven-acre, park-like campus, you live in the middle of a residential community, on tree-lined streets across from an elementary school, near families of all ages who care about the neighborhood.
Stroll past stately homes to Central Street with its delightful array of small shops, including places to stop for coffee, baked goods and boutique items. Each offers the personal attention you only find in this eclectic, vintage shopping district with a true small-town feel.
City pleasures are within a short walk. Downtown Evanston — with its many restaurants, cultural diversions and Lake Michigan – is a short distance away from Three Crowns Park, as is Northwestern University and its rousing sporting events and stimulating adult education courses.
You’re also just a convenient walk or bus ride to Lake Michigan, and a short train ride to Chicago for even more exciting activities.
