The Elmhurst Extended Care Center Difference
Elmhurst Extended Care Center isn’t your average, cookie-cutter nursing home. As the only family owned and operated nursing home in DuPage County, we focus on the family aspect and the compassionate, home-like environment of our facility to provide every resident and their family peace of mind in knowing they’re receiving the best possible quality care. Our staff-to-resident ratio is one of the highest in Illinois, and all of our residents receive individualized care plans to ensure both their goals, and their family’s goals, are met.
Skilled Nursing Facility
Our passion for providing a skilled nursing facility for short term rehabilitation, long term care, and a memory care unit for those with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is reflected in that we are on the preferred provider list of many local area hospitals and have a five-star rating with Medicare – not to mention U.S. News and World Report ranked our facility as one of the Best Nursing Homes in the country. We also hold a three-year special commendation from Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities because of the excellence our experienced and caring staff exhibits.
The rehabilitation center at Elmhurst Extended Care Center utilizes the most current medical equipment to ensure you’re able to get back to your highest level of function. We take great pride in the rehabilitation care we provide our residents, and our dedicated, in-house team of therapists has over 70 years combined experience to help you achieve improved health and quality of life.
Short Term Rehabilitation
When you’re looking at short term rehabilitation, it’s important to choose a facility that will be able to handle your needs around the clock. Our nursing staff is on-hand 24 hours a day, and all our therapists are in-house – allowing you the access you need to get back up and running. We’re also Medicare certified, and our short term rehabilitation services include physical, occupational, and speech therapy.
Long Term Care
Deciding where to pursue long term care can be a challenge. That’s why we make the decision easier on you by providing a skilled nursing facility designed to give a home-like environment with private and semi-private room options priced far below other nursing home centers. We also facilitate ease of daily life by providing complete, comprehensive care including blood sugar monitoring, medication administration, laundry services, housekeeping, and assisting with meals as well as providing activity programs and amenities such as a beauty salon, patio, aquarium, and much more. We know that each person has their own set of individual needs as well as their own challenges in transitioning to a long term care facility. To make certain those are met, our team focuses on person-centered care, rather than on the facility as a whole.
Making It Even Better
We’re always looking at ways to improve the quality of life for our residents – whether you’re with us for short term or long term care. Just this year, we’ve made several improvements to do just that. We now offer refrigerators in our private and semi-private rooms for short term rehabilitation patients. Our front lobby was renovated to create a reception area and admissions office to provide a more comfortable and private admissions process, and before the end of the year, we’ll have an additional dining and activities area on our secured second floor Memory Care Unit.
