Are you on Medicare/Medicaid and is a senior? Have you seen the new Seniors only doctors office located on 1541 W. Devon across from the hardware store? If not you need to, Oak Street Health is a very unique company taking on improving Older adults health by offering services that you won't find in many doctors offices. First they offer rides for seniors and as you can remember with all the crazy winter weather we had it was extremely difficult to get to your doctors appointments if you rely on the CTA to get around. Oak Street Health patients enjoyed being picked up and dropped off for their appointments. They also have a community room that all patients can come and enjoy anytime even if they just want to hangout and have coffee with friends. Plus they are able to enjoy many of the programs happening in the community room such as workouts, presentation on diabetes and other health related issues. I hope you really take a look at it if you or someone you know is a senior who is on Medicare.

  • Julie in Edgewater retired and curious

    Are they affiliated with a major hospital?

  • Swedish Covenant and Weiss Memorial Hospitals.

  • I like the idea of the community room. Because social isolation is a detriment to health, especially of seniors. Conversely, having support of community can help them (and everyone) survive a health crisis. This shows that this company is thinking about more than just the medical factors in the health of their patients.

    I apologize if my tone sounded rather cavalier--I am very lucky to be able to afford to indulge both my low-carb diet and foodie tastes. (As to organic produce, there are some fruits and a few veggies where organic vs. conventional doesn't matter--anything you peel, for instance, except tubers, is safe to eat if grown conventionally as long as you don't eat the peel). As to TP and paper towels, I usually get them either at Costco or via Peapod; I rarely buy animal-origin milk, for dietary reasons. (My husband & son don't like it anyway).

Does anyone know of a good, affordable company or individual that can do a full evaluation of a building - e.g. evaluating the roof, electrical,heating, and water systems, and overall condition of the common areas (inside and outside) of the building - not individual units? We're a relatively small condo association and we'd like to have one done and am having a hard time finding one. We've already looked on Yelp and contacted several places, either they dealt only with individual condo inspections, were not thorough enough, or didn't return phone calls. In the case of one of the most popular companies on Yelp's list, Domicile Consulting - they were very difficult to reach - by phone or through their website. Tried contacting them for months! When I finally got them, they promised to send a draft contract out and never did. Then when I tried calling them back to remind them, still never returned my calls. I would not say I'm difficult to deal with. At any rate, I would welcome any suggestions!

  • Ann - What is the purpose of the evaluation? The company/person that you seek to hire will probably vary depending on what you need. For example, do you need the building evaluated for real estate transaction purposes, fiscal planning or are there building condition issues that need to be addressed? Are you considering improving the building somehow - new windows, mechanical system, energy efficiency, etc.? Your answers will help determine the type of evaluation that is necessary and the correct professional for the evaluation.

  • Ann

    Good Questions Chad -
    We want do some proactive planning because we have an older building that is in need of repairs and we want to determine the best ways to make these repairs, get cost estimates, and create a timeline for the repairs need to be made. We want, as much as possible, to avoid being caught by surprise with a huge special assessment and/or the boiler breaking down in the middle of the winter, for example.

Affordable spaces for 100 guests in the Andersonville/Edgewater area?

Is the 40th Ward doing participatory budgeting?

So I'm reading all these articles about the participatory budgeting process in nearby wards -- some are holding votes, some conducting online surveys, some holding public meetings -- and I'm realizing that I've never heard a single word about PB from Ald. Patrick O'Connor, who ganked my Lincoln Square block in the redistricting. Is O'Connor even doing PB in the 40th?

Iconic Charlie Chaplin Theatre Up For Auction

Commuters and local residents pass by this unique building everyday at 5757 North Ridge and ask themselves what is happening with that unusual building? The building has a lot of history but the original purpose was that of a silent movie theatre for Charlie Chaplin.  Built in 1918, the space functioned as a movie goer’s paradise until the mid-1930s. Since then it has been used for multiple purposes that were very unkind to its structure.

The Landmark in Andersonville Ready For a New Chapter

Jan Baxter believes in her core that it’s not enough to just own and operate a business. Rather,  it is the responsibility of everyone in the community to invest in and participate in growth and development for the good of all residents. She has worked tirelessly to promote Andersonville both as a resident and a shop owner for the last 50 years. Anyone who knows Jan personally can attest to the endless hours she has volunteered and invested into the community she calls home. The Landmark is a staple boutique. The two-story shop features earrings, gifts and art on the first floor, antiques in the basement and a salon run by her daughter Jennifer on the second floor. The neighborhood has always enjoyed the friendly and inviting atmosphere at The Landmark, where customers are greeted by name when they walk in the door. Jan’s commitment to the community, from the annual shopping night for kids to Mid Summer Fest,  has been a special love affair with the Chicago north side neighborhood affectionately known as Andersonville.
