Clarendale senior living community opens in Schererville

The Clarendale senior living community will open in Schererville.

The Clarendale of Schererville senior living community has opened in the Tri-Town area, and it's not your great-grandfather's retirement community — it's filled with modern amenities like a pub, a gym and a movie theater.

Developer Ryan Companies invested $40 million into the 177-room community at 7770 Burr St. About 500 construction workers built the three-story building on a 9-acre site at U.S. 30 and Burr Street in Schererville.

“The continuum of care offered at Clarendale works hand-in-hand with engaging activities and high-quality amenities and finishes,” said Dave Erickson, Ryan Companies director of Real Estate Development.

Clarendale of Schererville has 85 independent living residences, 38 assisted living residences and 54 memory care residences, ranging from 300 square feet to 1,300 square feet. It reflects a trend in the industry to place independent living, assisted living and memory care under one roof.

The facility features amenities such as granite kitchen countertops in some rooms, living rooms with fireplaces, a bistro, a pub, pool tables, a library, a full-service salon, a gym, a crafts room, a courtyard and a movie theater that will host regular movie nights. 

The company has built similar facilities in Mokena and Algonquin in Illinois, and another is under construction in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee.
