Sunny Acres Nursing Home is a beautiful senior care community nestled into the picturesque Sangamon River valley in Petersburg, Illinois. We take great care of our seniors with individualized attention from our compassionate staff and the expertise that comes with decades in the service of seniors.  

Gone are the days of cold and stark nursing homes. At our community, we’ve created a safe and healthy place for seniors to enjoy their next stage of life. We have an aviary full of beautiful, happy birds that entertain our residents. The courtyard boasts a walking path that takes you through the lovely plants and flowers. During the summer season, you might even find some fresh ripe strawberries and cherry tomatoes to eat.

At Sunny Acres, we strive to provide person-centered care for the seniors in our area. We know that a continued quality of life is essential to our seniors and their families. We encourage independence, dignity, and respect for each senior as well as the highest possible level of skilled care.

Sunny Acres not only excels at skilled nursing, but we also provide short-term respite care for those caring for loved ones who need an alternative option. Or, if you’re looking for short-term rehab after a hospital stay, you can feel at home with us. Our RESTORE Therapy services offer speech, occupational, and physical therapies. The compassionate team at Sunny Acres is also skilled in IV therapy, X-rays, tube-feeding and management, wound care, and electrical stimulation.

To further provide the best healthcare for your loved ones, Sunny Acres has regular, in-house visits from various medical professionals. We have partnerships with dentists and podiatrists, as well as relationships with audiologists, ophthalmologists, and clinical psychologists in the area. We can schedule appointments and transportation to and from visits reducing the hassle and ensuring that all our residents are healthy and happy. To ease financial burdens, we also accept both Medicaid and Medicare.

The decision to have someone else care for your loved one is not an easy one. Know that at Sunny Acres, we care for your loved one like family. We know that great care is not just about having the right medical services but making our seniors’ best life possible. From our in-house salon to weekly religious services, space for family visits, and ways to engage in our community, Sunny Acres is a wonderful option for skilled nursing care and the next phase of life.
