The Bowes Retirement Center offers independent living with the daily services for seniors who need extra assistance with daily living, but whom a nursing home is not needed.
The Bowes Retirement Center has been providing exceptional care to seniors since 1953. We are proud of our heritage, our tradition, and the quality, resident driven care that is Bowes hallmark.
We offer the most reasonable rates in the Fox Valley area without compromising the quality of the services we provide.
Although the Bowes Family Retirement Center is not a nursing home, we provide limited personal services including:
* Resident Watch Program
* Medical services provided by home health care.
* Therapy provided by home-care agencies.
* Podiatry services.
* Short-term stays can be accommodated.
*Local transportation arrangements can be made for health care visits and for attendance at area churches, which represent eleven denominations.
In a beautiful turn of the century mansion in the heart of Elgin's charming Historical District, the Bowes Retirement Center offers independent living with daily services for seniors at the most reasonable rates in the Fox Valley.
Our Beautiful Home
Located in the heart of Elgin's Historical District, our facility was constructed at the turn of the century as a mansion for a wealthy executive. Over the years, as our business grew, we expanded the facility, adding 36 rooms to better serve our guests.
The Bowes Retirement Center features comfortable public living rooms with magnificent hand crafted woodwork. Period furniture offers a lovely surrounding for socializing, watching TV, reading, etc. These elements contribute to the comfortable yet elegant ambiance of our home.
The setting for our guest rooms is reminiscent of a Bed-and-Breakfast. Most private rooms feature a private half-bathroom. A limited number of shared-bathrooms are available.
Rooms are semi-furnished with space for our guest's furniture and personal treasures.
Our guest activities program is always growing and changing at our guest's requests, but usually include activities such as:
* Shopping trips to local stores
* Restaurant visits
* Live Entertainment
* Bingo, cards, and other games
* Exercise and Fitness Programs
* Current Events Seminars
* Monthly Socials
