Built in 1898, Odd Fellow - Rebekah Home's original building was part of a private community consisting of a farm, housing for staff, and "The Old Folks Home." The old 3-story building was torn down and replaced in 1976 with our current single-story building. The Alzheimer's unit was added in 1996. Our facility is owned by the Odd Fellows Organization and the Rebekah Assembly of Illinois and is operated by Heritage Enterprises.
"We live up to our reputation," says administrator David Standerfer. "We have very high standards that we hold our employees to. We closely monitor our staff's performance and resident care. However, one of the greatest measures of our success is that families say that we have an excellent, caring staff and they actually mean it."
Beyond the caliber of our care and staff, our facility boasts other fine features, such as our breathtaking location on sprawling, park-like grounds and recent renovations to our facility. We offer extensive on-site services - including a hair salon/beauty shop, respite care, hospice care, and physical, occupational, and speech therapies.
We also have a 42-bed additional specifically built for the wandering aspects of people with Alzheimer's and dementia.
What differentiates a facility of excellence from a nursing home? For some, it is just living up to its reputation.
