Memory Care

White Oaks at McHenry provides care through every stage of dementia. Our highly trained staff learns each resident’s story to create a tailored, personalized approach to serving individuals and their families.



Nestled along the Fox River in the heart of McHenry County, the city of McHenry is 46 miles northwest of downtown Chicago near the communities of Crystal Lake, Johnsburg, Round Lake, Wonder Lake and Woodstock.

White Oaks, which is designed to serve older adults with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia, is managed by Gardant Management Solutions, a mission-driven company that ranks as the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.

The program at White Oaks is designed to provide opportunities for residents to maintain a sense of purpose and belonging throughout the seasons of dementia. We focus on abilities rather than limitations because we understand that as we age our heart’s hopes and desires do not.

This $12 million expansion project was developed on four acres of land next to the Heritage Woods of McHenry assisted lifestyle community. Together, the communities provide a wide continuum of care for older adults.

A Wonderful Alternative

White Oaks at McHenry provides a wonderful residential alternative to a nursing home or to those struggling alone at home.

Residents have the opportunity to:

  • Live in a private apartment. Each of the apartments features a spacious bathroom and emergency alert system.
  • Receive personal assistance and help with medications. Nursing staff is on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Support services, such as three daily meals, housekeeping and laundry are also included.
  • Enjoy the companionship of friends and neighbors and participate in social and recreational activities.

The emphasis at our community is on providing residents with the dignity they deserve and on helping each resident maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.
