The Clare In Chicago Welcomes Residents Looking To Stay Active In Their Careers Unlike The Perception Of Other Retirement Communities
Date:11/30/2014

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 30, 2014

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.

Andres pursued his dream career late in life but is finding it was worth the wait. It wasn’t until he was 40 that he decided to return to school to become a veterinarian. Now, the resident of The Clare, owns and operates a total of four veterinary clinics in the downtown area.

Andres loves the coincidence of being a native of Clare, Illinois, a small town in Chicago’s western suburbs. He attended Illinois State University where he earned his degree in animal science, working towards his masters degree at Texas A&M in animal nutrition. Andres’ family bought a ranch in Wyoming, which he ran for eight years. First Chicago National Bank then recruited him and he had a successful banking career for eight years. When he started noticing the banking world changing with major work force reductions he said, “I saw the writing on the wall.” Andres decided to pursue his lifelong goal of becoming a veterinarian. He attended Ross School of Veterinary medicine in St. Kitts for two years, transferring to University of Missouri where he completed his clinical year.

In 2000, Andres became a veterinarian, which he said “was a dream come true.” He moved to Chicago where he worked for several veterinary clinics. In 2007, Andres launched Clark N Oak Animal Health Center. “I now have 12,000 patients with 7000-8000 clients or owners. It really took off,” he said. Andres subsequently opened South State N 16th Animal Wellness Center, and will soon open Clark N Delaware Cat Clinic and North N Hudson Animal Wellness Center.

Moving to The Clare while he’s still working full-time suits Andres well. “I work a lot. Six or seven days a week” he said. “At The Clare, they cook fabulous meals, clean my apartment and provide first-rate entertainment. This fits perfectly for me.”

Andres first learned about The Clare several years ago, moving to the community in 2012. “At first I was looking at the future, thinking that when I retired I’d move there. Then I started thinking about it as a possibility a lot sooner. I’m not married and I don’t have children. This seemed like a great option,” he said. The fact that he has juvenile onset diabetes was a motivating factor. “Prior to this, I was eating out a lot. Living here gives me a lot more control over my diet.”

Andres said that he’s made great friends at The Clare. “The people here are all so interesting. They all have stories. I’m learning so much from the people here,” he said. “I enjoy all of the amenities and people and the location doesn’t get any better. I participate in social events and outings. I get involved with things that I wouldn’t otherwise get involved with. I wouldn’t have gone to the opera before, but I do that here. The Clare has become my concierge.

The Clare at Rush and Pearson is a Life Care retirement community in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast with incomparable lifestyle, amenities and the financial stability only a debt-free community can offer.
