"Living at Greencastle North Aurora, I don't have to worry about being independent. They have a lot of nice facilities, and the staff is excellent."


Robert has lived at GreenCastle of North Aurora for nine years. Prior to living at the community, he lived in a 240 square foot apartment and his surroundings were dangerous. He often reflects back at times when his own neighbors would steal from him. His quality of life deteriorated greatly in such conditions.

Thankfully, Robert learned about Embrace Living Communities and now can confidently live independently and with dignity. As an architect and airplane buff, he spends time building model airplanes, and he has developed quite the collection. His freedom of worry gives him time to do what he enjoys most. Robert loves his independence and his, now, 548 square foot home.
