Typical Patient

Most of our residents have severe and profound cognitive deficits. They also have complex medical needs such as seizure disorder, severe cerebral palsy, tracheostomy care, and enteral care.

Age of Patients

The individuals we serve range in age from birth to adults and seniors. Our facility becomes their home at any age of admission, and as long as they require the services we provide, there is no need for them to "age out" of our placement.

Location

We are located in the Heart of Illinois, in the vibrant community of Canton. We are fortunate to have the advantages of nearby specialty hospitals, doctors, and clinics, while still being "small town" enough for the community to embrace our residents and welcome them into their schools, workshops, restaurants, parks churches, and community events.

Educational Services

The West Central Illinois Special Education Cooperative operates a program in the nearby middle school to meet the needs of our patients. All residents who are 3 to less than 23 years old attend the program, which is designed specifically to meet their physical, medical, and educational needs.

Once graduated from the school program, our residents attend the Fulton County Rehabilitation day training program in Canton.
