The rehab care you need to get back to what you love.

The senior rehabilitation services offered at our Wynscape neighborhood in Wheaton, Illinois, help area patients recover and return home after an illness or hip, knee or other joint replacement surgery. The key to our collaborative approach are our physiatrist and nurse practitioner, who specialize in senior rehabilitation medicine. They’ll work closely with you, your family, personal physician and all members of our care team to create a personalized plan for your most optimal outcome. Our restorative rehabilitation services — including physical, occupational, speech and orthopedic rehabilitation — are available in a comfortable, residential setting to help you quickly recover and return home. To create a more open and inviting setting, we recently updated our residences, dining rooms and common areas.

We also offer a Transitions Program — a comprehensive discharge plan developed by our Care Coordination Team. To ensure a successful transition home, our team coordinates and schedules physician appointments, equipment needs, medication management and delivery of other home care services.

Wynscape is accredited by and meets the stringent care standards of Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. This is awarded only to organizations that have demonstrated the highest levels of care and attention towards persons served. Our rehabilitation services include physical, occupational, and speech therapies. At Wynscape, we specialize in cardiac, orthopedic, oncology and wound care management.
