Creating unforgettable experiences on Chicago’s north side

Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood

is a great place to Age Well

Edgewater is an ideal area for aging well–that’s why we partner with a variety of other organizations to offer unique and engaging programs in a variety of locations.

Join us for our popular monthly luncheons, which include live entertainment and dancing as well as opportunities to see old friends and make new ones over a delicious lunch. The Greek Festival’s always a favorite!

As news of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, Mather has taken a proactive stance to close our neighborhood programs locations to the public. We will provide updates via email as they become available.
