Learn about our rehabilitation programs:
For recovery after procedures like hip or knee replacements, Wesley Place has earned a reputation for our licensed therapists’ orthopedic expertise, our state-of-the-art facility, and the goal-oriented programs we’ve created in collaboration with renowned orthopedic surgeons and physicians from Chicago’s top hospitals.
We provide treatment, including speech and occupational therapy, for impairments due to stroke and other brain injuries. Our speech and occupational therapists work with a neuropsychologist and peer counselor to provide you with an in-depth assessment and a range of treatment options. We can give you the care and attention to help ensure the best possible outcome.
Our short-term cardiac rehabilitation program, HeartBeats, provides assistance with bypass surgery recovery, managing weight and fluids in congestive heart failure, heart attack recovery, coronary heart disease management and other cardiac-related conditions.
Our specialized therapists are trained to assess your needs in order to give you personalized treatment. Led by board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Gill, Heartbeats includes a consultation and weekly rounds with Dr. Gill.
Our nursing and therapy teams are ready to help you recover from your recent hospital stay or from an illness or other medical condition. Our collaborative and practiced approach is designed around your recovery goals and specific needs, and those aims guide our therapists as they work with you to help you heal.
Whether you plan to move home after rehabilitation or to find a new home where you can receive support, we are there for you each step of the way.
If you will be going in for an elective surgery, like a hip or knee replacement, we can help you plan your rehabilitation. Get the information you need at one of our pre-rehab events or contact us for a one-on-one chat.

Whether your hospital stay was planned or unexpected, your discharge planner will refer your information to us after you let them know you’ve chosen Wesley Place. If you are approved under your Medicare and/or insurance benefits, we are equipped to treat your diagnosis.
Your discharge planner will arrange for transportation from the hospital to Wesley Place, usually via medicar or ambulance. The hospital will also send us your doctor’s orders so that we can prepare the necessary medication and equipment for you.
When you arrive, we will show you to your private room and address your immediate needs. Within one hour, a nurse will conduct an assessment and administer any necessary medication. You’ll also meet with one of our dining team members so we can learn about your dietary needs.
You’ll also meet a physician within 72 hours, who will be readily available to you throughout your stay. Nursing care is provided 24/7 and Therapy is offered 7 days a week. Our multi-disciplinary team creates a care plan and works with you throughout your stay to keep you comfortable and progressing toward your goal. We’ll communicate with your doctors about your progress.
The day you arrive is the day we start planning when you’ll get to leave, recovered. As your discharge date approaches, our social worker will make plans to ensure that you get the home health or outpatient therapy you need to continue your recovery. We’ll also make sure you have the proper medication and medical equipment and will arrange your travel to get you home safely.
Sometimes guests who’d like long-term assistance after rehab choose to move to an assisted living, skilled nursing or supportive living community. If this is the case after your stay, you’ll receive priority access to our other communities and services, and we’ll stay by your side to make the transition smooth.
Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and as convenient as possible so you can focus on getting well. Some of the little things we provide to make your day better during your short-term rehabilitation include:
