While The Clare fits securely in the category of luxury retirement community, the designation ‘retirement’ is a bit of a misnomer for some. Case in point is Dr. Steven Andres who has lived at The Clare for the past two and a half years. The ideal location in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast, along with the community’s great amenities has made The Clare the perfect home for Andres who is possibly 20 years away from ‘retirement’. “While many of the residents at The Clare are certainly retired, others remain very engaged in the careers that they love, as well as in volunteer work, and many activities throughout the community. We prefer to refer to The Clare as luxury senior living,” said Kyle Exline, executive director of The Clare.
