Elwood Care Center

The Elwood Care   Center opened in 1972  with 36 beds.  In 1978, it was expanded  to 55 beds.  In 1972, 18 people were  employed and now there are over 60 employees.The Elwood Care   Center was a project of  the Village of Elwood.   It continues to be an entity of the Village, but is totally  self-supporting.     In 2002, the 8 unit Assisted Living was built  on.  As of July 2006, 43 licensed skilled  (Medicare and Medicaid approved), beds are available at the Elwood Care   Center with 7 private  rooms.

2006 brought about the latest remodel, as  the entire outside was landscaped with beautiful flowers and walk ways for the  residents enjoyment.  The new “Healing Garden,” features a waterfall, bridge  and pond with an unusual assortment of plants that bring to light out  senses.  Different textures, fragrances  and colors are combined for our resident’s relaxation and pleasure.

Our facility has a home like  atmosphere.  We like to think we are  “family taking care of family.”  Residents  are encouraged to make their rooms as home-like as possible with their own  possessions and wall hangings.
