"Families appreciate how much we genuinely care about their loved ones."
Our facility has been part of the Walnut community since 1973 when it opened as Walnut Manor Nursing Home. Walnut Manor was built on a dream - a dream in which a group of local businessmen and community members could build a long-term care facility for families wanting to keep their loved ones close, even when care needs changed or became more complex. In July of 1973, Walnut opened and accepted its first residents. Walnut Manor received their Skilled license in October of 2003 and Medicare Certification in June of 2004. In 2015, Heritage Enterprises purchased the facility, and it is now known as Heritage Health: Therapy & Senior Care.
"Those that have come from another facility are amazed at the differences," says Administrator Dennis Grobe. "We have a reputation for delivering quality care. We don't hire outside agency staff for our day-to-day operations. Our professional, caring staff not only lives in the local community, but often shares pre-existing ties with our residents and their families. Families appreciate how much we genuinely care about their loved ones."
Being at home is best. However, sometimes another option is needed for short or long-term care. Our team at Heritage Health has earned a solid reputation for consistently providing exceptional care with the added convenience of being close to home. Our families also appreciate the all-inclusive room rate - no added charges for items such as special diets, incontinence, or wheelchairs. Our facility also features a Medicare/Medicaid program, respite care, hospice care through Rock River and Spring Valley Hospices, and physical, occupational, and speech therapies through Select Rehab.
There is wireless internet service for guest and visitor use.
Heritage Health is a proud and active member of the local community as well as a member of the Illinois Health Care Association.
