My Father was a resident at Encore Memory Care in Crystal Lake. The staff was always caring and attentive not only to my Father, but also my Mother and our whole family when we came to visit. I would recommend this facility as a dignified place to trust with the care of your loved ones.

Encore Memory Care did an outstanding job taking care of our father (Jesse Avila) during his last days. He had been to two other memory care units and was not having a nice time. Lyric, and several of the staff here made him feel at home and special. He finally passed but he was well taken care of final days. I recommend Encore. 👍

My mother, Vivian, was at Encore for a short period of time before she passed away. We knew from the first visit that this was the place for our mom. During her stay, she was treated as family. They attended to her every need and made her feel special. They reminded her daily that she was loved. The Encore staff also treated our family as one of their own. When my mom was in the hospital, Lisa would visit her and bring candy and flowers. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who is looking for a family environment for their loved ones.

My Father has lived at Revere Court for 6 years and I can’t say enough good things about that decision. The staff is amazing and attentive. The programs they offer to our loved ones are exciting and enriching on a daily basis. Placing my Father in a memory care home was the most stressful and difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make but I’m so thankful I chose Revere Court. They put all my worries at ease and have handled the pandemic gracefully and carefully to keep our family members safe and loved.
