Buckingham Pavilion Nursing in Chicago, IL
5.0

We are fine and my husband was there for physical therapy. It went well and the staff are very nice, attentive, and talked to him at an adult level. The meals were good and we were pretty pleased with what they provided to us. I liked that is was clean and smelled well, there were no odors. It was a good experience and a helpful recovery. He had a lovely and large room and it was light. The size and atmosphere was helpful for us. they

The Grove of Evanston Living and Rehab Center
5.0

My mom was in a car accident and broke her pelvis. The doctors recommended putting her in a rehab facility so she could get round the clock care that she needed. The hardest decision i ever had to make was choosing a "home" for my mom. The social worker at the hospital suggested that i visit a few different places before i made a decision which is what i did. Other facilities don't compare to the grove. Although other facilities "look nicer and newer" don't be fooled. The grove of Evanston and the entire staff is AMAZING!! My mom has PT 7 days a week and they truly took care of her. The staff not only took the time to get to know my mom but also my family and they were always accommodating. They checked on her constantly and made sure she was comfortable. They provided her with anything she needed and were always happy to do so. She never complained about the food and my mom is quite a picky eater. When my mom was getting ready to be released, The Grove went above and beyond to find a home health carrier that accepts my moms insurance which isn't medicare and made her home coming that much smoother. I will always be thankful for the care my mom received at the Grove of Evanston and will continue to support them. The physical therapists, cnas and the administrative staff truly go above and beyond for their patients. Thank you Grove of Evanston. You've made my moms accident easier to handle.

The Carrington at Lincolnwood
4.9

The food is good but sometimes with the service they get the orders wrong and the meals have to be redone. However, our loved ones absolutely love The Carrington, they have high ceilings and nice wide hallways. The apartments have nice big windows that brings in a lot of bright and natural light. Also, every time we go to visit everyone is out of their rooms, mingling and playing games which we really like to see.
