“I know from personal experience that the Smith Village staff can make days much brighter for residents and their families,” says Bob Berghoff, whose mother Doris moved into the original Washington and Jane Smith Home.
“My family was delighted with the welcome we received when we stopped in for an impromptu visit. My mother had made so many new friends and savored time with people who had been her neighbors for many years, we were grateful she could make time for us too” he adds. “And she always appreciated the elegance of her surroundings—a style that has been carried forward in the new Smith Village.”
As the second generation to serve as both a trustee and board chair, Bob Berghoff views Smith Village as an integral part of Beverly. His own community engagement extends to service as a trustee and director of the Beverly Area Planning Association, the Beverly Improvement Association and the Beverly Arts Center. He also has served seniors on the North Side as president of the Covenant Home of Chicago.
A graduate of Northwestern University and the University of Chicago Law School, he is a partner in the firm of Berghoff & Berghoff, Ltd., and has practiced law in Chicago since 1965.
