About Bell Tower Retirement

Originally built as a school in 1893, Bell Tower Retirement once served to educate the young people of East Dubuque, Illinois. Renovations were completed in 2008 to provide an atmosphere that reflects the heritage of this time-honored building while including the most up-to-date safety features including an emergency call system and state-of-the-art fire protection equipment.

Today, our beautiful building fosters individual growth and independence for seniors by offering Independent, Assisted, Memory Care, and Respite Care senior apartments with individualized care plans to accommodate any need that may arise.

“Our mission is to provide an atmosphere of respect, comfort, and grace, where the quality of life and independence are of the utmost importance.”

Dementia Friendly Program

Our Vision is to drive a community-wide effort to develop an increased awareness and understanding of dementia, while decreasing its stigma and isolation so individuals that suffer from this disease are valued, included and live well.

We have three sister communities in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. Visit each location for more information.
