Why Choose Wheaton for Transitional & Long-Term Care?

At Wheaton, we recognize our patients as individuals with unique physical, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs. As a compassionate, faith-based health care provider, we believe developing a positive relationship with our patients and families is essential to the healing process. Each of our transitional and long-term care facilities offers person-directed care that incorporates individual choices and encourages patient autonomy.

An interdisciplinary team collaborates to meet resident needs and achieve their goals. Individualized care planning enables each resident to function at his or her highest level, ensuring that their stay with us can be a special time of personal growth as well as physical healing.

Our facilities are unique in that each is located on a hospital campus, providing patients with comprehensive and coordinated care at all times. Geriatric nurse specialists and the Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) can assist geriatric patients with dementia. Each facility provides in-house therapy and activity programs that are customized to meet resident needs and also offer comprehensive patient and family education. How We Can Help
