What better way to discover what it’s like to live at Tamarisk NorthShore—managed by CJE SeniorLife—than to shadow some residents throughout their day! Our camera followed Sylvia and others as they participated in the many possibilities available at Tamarisk NorthShore. We captured some great photos and are sharing them to reveal the warm, dynamic environment that exists behind Tamarisk’s doors. As they went about their daily routine, we were amazed by the many options for involvement, enrichment, and socializing from which they could choose. There was a water movement class, walking club, delicious dining, beautifully landscaped terraces, and many life enrichment offerings, to name just a few.
We can readily see how deeply Tamarisk is imbued with CJE’s values. Residents enjoy a beautiful place to live while our experienced and caring staff empowers them every day to maintain their physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness. We do this in many ways, such as offering a variety of Life Enrichment programs, showing them how to utilize the current equipment in the Fitness Room, providing the latest movies in the Theatre, and offering art classes in the Expressions art studio.

It’s just one of many Tamarisk fitness opportunities, which include different types of yoga, and much more. Here, participating residents meet on the South Terrace and embark on their walk.

Spotlight on Sylvia
Sylvia, a charming Bubbie in her youthful 80s, moved here about ten months ago from Florida. When asked what prompted her move, she responds: “Well, I was stuck alone in a big house down there because my husband had passed away, and my kids said, ‘enough is enough!’” So, Sylvia moved back to the Chicago area to be near her two daughters and their families. After participating in all the fitness activities, within a short time Sylvia was stronger and healthier than ever. “I can walk all over, exercise, and swim, and I don’t even get winded,” she claims. For Sylvia, the benefits of being close to family, meeting new friends, and immersing herself in wellness and enrichment activities made Tamarisk NorthShore the perfect choice for living the good life!
The elegant Acacia Room provides the perfect backdrop for a meal with Sylvia and the friends she’s made at Tamarisk. They choose from an extensive menu that offers many choices of delicious, healthy, and nutritious meals prepared by the Executive Chef and his team.
The lush, verdant landscaping and comfortable seating of the South Terrace offer a private, welcoming place to just sit and enjoy the fresh air and the sights and sounds of nature.
