The residents and staff enjoyed celebrating St. Patrick's Day. (March 2016)
The principal charity of the CHICAGO SCOTS is the Scottish Home - a small, private community that provides both assisted living and nursing care services in a peaceful, quiet setting nestled on five wooded acres. Ours is the world's only Scottish Society that owns and operates a nursing home. The CHICAGO SCOTS built the Scottish Home in North Riverside, Illinois in 1910. And every single day, for more than 100 years, the Home has provided living care, friendship, peace of mind and enrichment to countless residents and their families. Because the Scottish Home is small, a close bond develops between staff and residents. Every one of the Home's staff gets to know the needs and preferences of their friends - the residents. This is the kind of bond that you would find in your own home and this is precisely what makes the Scottish Home special. The Scottish Home is a place where friends become family.
