Alzheimer’s Care

When someone suffers from Alzheimer’s or dementia, even the everyday becomes difficult. At Watseka Rehabilitation & Health Care Center, we offer assistance to accommodate the varying levels of memory and function loss brought on by this disease. While many people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s may be capable of living at home or on their own, their safety and well-being become a greater concern as they progressively lose memory, perception and judgement. When the time comes that it is too difficult for caregivers and family to care for them safely, Casey Health Care Center offers an alternative.

It’s important that you examine the potential living arrangements and alternative treatments that are available in your area before the time comes when care away from home is necessary. The disease’s onset of cognitive and physical losses mandate special attention by trained professionals who not only have the ability to work with people at all stages of function/memory loss, but who are also able to remain compassionate while interacting with these residents. With care that is available 24 hours a day, Casey Health Care Center offers a friendly, yet supervised, environment that is designed to keep your loved one safe and to maintain their quality of life as much as possible.

What they’re saying

Everyone from housekeeping to the nursing staff is wonderful. I know that my mom is in the hands of wonderful, caring people. When she came there 2 years ago, I wasn’t sure I was doing the right thing, but you have proven over and over again that it was the best thing for her that I could have ever done when I could no longer meet her needs myself. Thank you for taking such good care of my mom

Family Member of a Resident

Petersen Health Care was an absolute answer to prayers for our family as we sought the proper facility for our Aunt. The facilities are very home-like, and the care and love given to the residents by the staff is exceptional. I would recommend Petersen Health Care to anyone looking for a home for their loved one with dementia.

Family Member

Well, this was the best decision I could have made for Mom. Every staff person listened to me as though my concerns were their only concerns. They took into consideration all of Mom’s individual needs, even her personal preferences that were not within the normal protocols of the nursing home. They really listened when I talked. They kept me informed. They respected her wishes, through me, since she could no longer express herself.

Family Member

The time has come to leave the beautiful people in this place. Having been here before, I was impressed with the new therapy department. Occupational Therapy has helped me learn new ways to put on my shoes and socks and I can do it by myself. Physical Therapy has helped to strengthen my legs and get me back to walking again. If I need therapy again, I will definately come here!

Successful Therapy Patient

I recently was a short-term resident at Polo Rehabilitation and Health Care following surgery. The staff was incredible and deserve special mention. I appreciated the service and, most of all, the friendship extended to me when I was a resident there. All the CNAs tended to my needs. Their gentle and kind attention was exceptional; I am sure it sped my recovery. Those who prepared and served my meals also played a big role. The food was excellent and the cheery smiles of the servers brightened the sometimes stressful days. The Pathways therapists pushed me to stretch those stiff muscles.

I am sure that I would not be doing as well as I am – and be back in my own apartment — without them. Those who made it possible for me to get to my doctor appointments aided tremendously. It was definitely easier for me in the Polo Rehab van than in a car. You gentlemen are true gentle-men. I truly feel that the Polo Rehabilitation and Health Care facility is one of the best available in this area. I cannot thank all the staff enough. It is top notch nursing care.
