After looking at a handful of places for my father, I found The Courtyard most appealing. It’s been over two years since we moved in, and I’m very satisfied. It’s recently changed hands to new ownership and it’s improved once again. My father has had a garage and kept his vehicle there, he can come and go as he pleases. He has made a slew of friends and he enjoys living there. They have activities every day and a slew of games, puzzles, books in the library. All of the staff has been wonderful. They keep a nice clean facility and communicate very well, keeping me informed. Highly recommended. Very Pleased!!

I had the opportunity to visit and tour the facility. It is absolutely beautiful. Jodi goes out of her way to make the residents happy. She places their personal items throughout the facility so they always feel at home no matter where they are in the facility.

I moved my dad here after a memory lapse and the whole team reached out to know him despite his introversion. They guided me in all stages of his care including when memory care was needed. They were kind, they took great care of him and were true team to me. Could not love this team more!

My mother has been a resident at Randall Residence for 7 years and it has been a great experience. Recently, her health has been declining and I can't give enough praise to Executive Director Jen M and her entire staff for the support they are providing my mother and the peace of mind it is giving our family. We are constantly impressed with the level of care, the professionalism of the staff and the support they provide. This team really stepped up and I can't thank them enough for everything they are doing. If anyone is evaluating assisted living options in the McHenry area, you can count on Randall Residence to support you through the entire journey. Thanks again to EVERY staff member at Randall Residence.
