Project Overview

The Danish Home of Chicago has been a dedicated provider of senior care services. Guided by a steadfast commitment to a comprehensive continuum of care, they ensure that residents remain an integral part of their community throughout their lives, seamlessly transitioning from independent living to catered living and ultimately to 24/7 nursing care.

In their ongoing pursuit of enhanced resident well-being, The Danish Home engaged Berglund to embark on a phased renovation endeavor, aimed at modernizing their community in the Norwood Park area. This renovation, which encompassed both Phase 1 and Phase 2, focused on the demolition and transformation of the second floor on the south side of the building. Covering an area of 2,500 square feet, this initiative brought about a range of improvements, including the modernization of four residential rooms with newly added bathrooms and the creation of two utility rooms. This project underscores both organizations' commitment to maintaining the highest standards of care and quality of life for senior residents.
