Celebrating Scottish culture.

Nourishing Scottish identity.

Supporting Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care.

Founded in 1845 as the Illinois Saint Andrew Society, the Chicago Scots is the first and longest running non-profit organization in Illinois.

We nourish Scottish identity, celebrate Scottish culture and support one of the finest senior living and memory care campuses in greater Chicagoland. Today, we welcome everyone who is Scottish by birth, by heritage or simply by inclination!

Supporting Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care

Our dedication to nourishing Scottish identity through service, fellowship and celebration of Scottish culture allows us the great honor of supporting our primary charity, Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care, in North Riverside, Illinois.

Our five-acre, forested campus is a beautiful setting for the historic Scottish Home (opened in 1910) and the MacLean House memory care residence (opened in 2016). At Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care, we offer a continuum of care from Assisted Living to Skilled Nursing with care provided in the Scottish Way: Home, Family and Love.
