Alta Rehab at Wauconda

Alzheimer's Care

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.

Hospice CareWe 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 are...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.

Physical therapy can and should be as every bit as unique as you are. Wauconda Care provides a full range of comprehensive services, individually customized to meet your specific needs, with a strong emphasis on communication. Whatever brings you to us – a joint replacement, sports injury, work or home-related injury, post-surgery recuperation, recovery from an illness – we’re here to support you in restoring function.

Our skilled and encouraging professionals love their jobs and it shows. Led by a physiatrist – a physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation – they will jumpstart your physical therapy and support your healing. The entire team is passionate about transforming your goals into accomplishments and best of all, they make therapy fun instead of grueling.

Many rehab facilities only offer rehabilitation therapy five or six days a week. Not Wauconda Care. With 10+ full-time therapists on staff, we have therapists onsite seven days a week. Our focused approach improves living skills and reduces pain that much faster.

Our past patients tell us that Wauconda Care is far from a typical institutional hospital or facility; in fact, it’s downright friendly. Within our community, it’s easy for patients to make new friends, encounter life-long friends and meet in small groups in our cheerful Town Square gathering space.

At Wauconda Care, we treat the whole person with “extras” like aromatherapy, nightly leisure cart filled with treats, even a Happy Hour Social. At the same time, we are totally devoted to providing each patient with the best possible patient experience through hard work and dedication We are honored to be a multiple-time recipient of Joint Commission Certification and we hold a Five Star Validation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

A key reason to choose a rehabilitation facility is to reduce your risk of further injury or infection, which could lead to a re-hospitalization.

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 visted other Chicago area facilities. Find out why when you arrange your visit.
