Established in 1845 as the Illinois Saint Andrew Society of the City of Chicago, our organization is the oldest 501(c)3 charity in Illinois. Today, as the CHICAGO SCOTS, we have grown into the largest Scottish cultural organization in North America.

The Society's principal charities are The Scottish Home and The Caledonian House. The Scottish Home, a beautiful nursing home that the CHICAGO SCOTS built in 1910. The Scottish Home offers a wide range of outstanding assisted living and nursing services. For 100 years, the Scottish Home has provided each resident with loving, person-centered care and true friendship. The CHICAGO SCOTS is proud to be opening The Caledonian House in July 2016. The Caledonian House is a new venture of the Scottish Home and a practical response to the challenges America is currently facing with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Set in five park-like acres in North Riverside, our tradition of person-centered practice that emphasizes warm community, close bonds between residents and staff, and strong links to family and friends. Research shows that just such an environment fosters the best outcomes for people with memory care.
