A message from Drew Kowalski, Executive Director

Thank you for visiting the Tamarisk NorthShore website. We realize that there are several different communities in the area that you may be considering for your next move and I hope that what you see and hear about Tamarisk NorthShote will entice you to visit us to see for yourself what we can offer that’s truly different. I knew from the moment that I met the CJE SeniorLife Team in June 2019 that I wanted to be a part of this unique opportunity. I have worked in senior living for almost two decades and I’m confident that Tamarisk NorthShore, managed by CJE SeniorLife, will become a destination of choice for older adults.

When I first came on board, this project was still in its early stages and was called “Deerfield Senior Residences.” That generic name did not reflect the colorful and energetic image of the desired aspirational community—a contemporary design infused with innovative programming—that would be offered. After several discussions and meetings with our stakeholders, we renamed the community to Tamarisk NorthShore. This name was chosen as a nod to the tamarisk tree that is indigenous to Israel and the Middle East. These flowering evergreen trees are considered resilient, tenacious and live for hundreds of years. Their broad shape provides shade from the hot sun. Similarly, Tamarisk NorthShore will create a beautiful environment where older adults can be active, productive and community-minded by participating in an array of unparalleled health and life enrichment activities.

“I look forward to building a caring and compassionate
team to enhance the quality of life for older adults.”

As people move into Tamarisk NorthShore, my promise to you is to build a caring and compassionate team to enhance the quality of life for you…our residents.
