Mather LifeWays In Your Neighborhood

Mather LifeWays is making neighborhoods better places for older adults to live, work, learn, contribute, and play in inspiring ways. We have a variety of options to offer including Mather’s—More Than a Café, Mather Edgewater, and Telephone Topics.

Mather’s—More Than a Café

Our Chicagoland Mather’s—More Than a Café locations aren’t just restaurants serving delicious, made-to-order breakfast and lunch. They’re places that offer…more. Fitness classes; professionally taught learning lectures; computer sessions; and social connections are just a sampling of what we offer. Have a cup of coffee and stay awhile …or maybe share your artwork with others. Do some laughter yoga (ha ha ha!)…or take a day-trip with a group of neighbors and friends to an apple orchard or concert. It all starts with a cup of coffee, and from there, the possibilities are endless. We’re truly More Than a Café.
