We are a faith-based non-profit community established in 1964 by The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago in Lemont, Illinois. Living Joyfully is the fullest expression of our mission which is to “Celebrate Life and Serve with Joy,” and this is embodied throughout the community. Our rehabilitation center is part of Franciscan Village, a Continuing Care Retirement Community and we offer all levels of care, including:

Our skilled nursing is Joint Commission Accredited, and our many years servicing seniors and the longevity of associates together provide peace of mind and an enhanced quality of life for you or someone you love.

Whether you are with us for long-term skilled nursing care or short-term rehabilitative therapy, our expert staff will provide you or someone you love with the highest level of care and all the warmth and comforts of home.

Our Short-Term Rehabilitation Center offers all private suites that will allow our guests to recover in a hospital-like environment with the comforts of home. Each private suite is furnished with accommodations that encourage our guests to rest and recover. Franciscan Village’s care support team is available to help guests with activities of daily living in their private suite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide compassionate skilled nursing care.

Rehabilitation treatment philosophies have naturally progressed over time, but one valuable element at Mother Theresa Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is the philosophy and practice that each individual guest is valued and respectfully cared for to restore strength and maximize their fullest recovery potential to safely return home.

Our experienced and licensed healthcare professionals consist of Nurses, Post- Acute Hospital Physicians, Specialty Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Rehabilitation (Physical, Occupational, Speech, and Respiratory) Therapists, Social Workers, Dieticians, Chaplains, Certified Nursing Assistants and Ancillary Staff that provide individualized approaches to the specific needs of each guest and collectively contribute to their successful outcomes.
