Welcome toPorter Place

Porter Place, located in Tinley Park, Illinois, is a 4-acre memory care community with convenient access to local expressways. Our charming 66-apartment community has a technology rich and purposeful design to support residents through all life stages. Spacious, secure indoor and outdoor areas provide the freedom to explore safely. Our dedication to person-centered care and personalized programming, activities and outings can be felt throughout our community and seen in the eyes of our smiling residents. 

Our Pathways of Purpose program ensures that residents are not just living with dementia, but living life to the fullest.  Porter Place understands that our residents seek a sense of purpose and want opportunities to be themselves, spend time with others, have fun, make a difference, find balance and grow.  We do this through understanding who our residents were, are and who they want and will continue to be.

Porter Place brings together a compassionate team of dementia trained professionals who are dedicated to person-centered care, providing residents with a high quality of life. Our purpose is to protect, engage and love people with memory loss.

We invite you to schedule a tour and experience Porter Place firsthand.

Meet Our Executive Director, Laporsha Chavers

Welcome to Porter Place!

My passion for older individuals with dementia began while helping to care for my grandmothers, both of whom had developed dementia later in their lives. Working my way through college as a dietary aid for a senior living community during college deepened that connection to seniors.

I am now in the process of pursuing a Ph.D. in Psychology which, along with valuable hands-on personal experience, has been influential in understanding the unique needs of every individual I serve. I have been profoundly influenced by our wonderful residents, learning invaluable lessons in empathy, compassion, and personalized care.

It is a privilege to collaborate with the dedicated team here at Porter Place, where our collective mission revolves around protecting, engaging, and loving our residents as cherished family members.

I’d like to extend a heartfelt invitation to come visit us and experience the warmth and compassion of our community at Porter Place. We eagerly await the opportunity to learn your story and showcase our commitment to providing unparalleled care and support.
