Forget about what you think you know about a short-term rehabilitation center.


Rehabilitation at Wauconda Care is far from what you might expect from a short-term rehabilitation facility. In fact, we think you are going to be amazed. We bring a powerful vision of how outstanding care should be defined, in a cozy, friendly “community gathering spot” setting.

Nothing is spared in our quest to combine the finest in care with the utmost in comfort within our sparkling clean facility, nestled securely away from the busy street. Everything about Wauconda Care evokes the feeling of a convivial community – from the caring staff to the lovingly crafted Town Square, to the nighttime cart with sleepy-time tea and hot chocolate and cookies in each room. Wauconda Care truly is in a class by itself.

We create an exceptional rehabilitation experience.

This is not your grandmother’s nursing home. Not by a long shot! Our rooms are inviting and sun-filled, complemented by warm finishes in soothing earth tones, polished hardwood flooring and ample seating space for the family to visit.

Our sense of community is second-to-none, with a soothing indoor waterfall, two indoor aviaries filled with colorful birds, a unique attention-capturing glass sculpture, a variety of relaxing and cheerful gathering areas, a private indoor patio and beautiful landscaped gardens that are often a-flutter with colorful butterflies during the warm months.

At the end of the day, it’s all about therapeutic care…and we excel.

As you might expect, a facility that spends this much time on the small details is bound to shine when it comes to focusing on what’s most important: returning you or your loved one back to your everyday life. Our entire staff is friendly and compassionate – from our receptionist to our nurses to our credentialed therapists who view their vocation as more fun than work. You’ll never be “just a number”; in fact, don’t be at all surprised when very quickly, everyone starts calling you by name and asking how your day went.

Through an individually tailored combination of round-the-clock, round-the calendar therapies, treatments and modern and specialized equipment, our team works together to identify your goals, monitor your progress, and cheer you on to a return to your optimal functional level.

We invite you to tour our exceptional Wauconda Care facility. Nine out of ten individuals or families that take us up on our offer end up choosing Wauconda – especially those who have visited other Chicago area facilities. Find out why when you arrange your visit.
