Frank Guajardo began his healthcare career in college, when he worked as a certified nursing assistant. Since then, he has dedicated his career to senior living, working for the past two decades at skilled nursing and continuing care communities. Frank says that our Victorian Village’s mission “speaks to an important life lesson, which is helping those that can’t help themselves, or who are in need.” Frank and his wife Neli have 3 children and a bulldog named Lexi—one big, happy family.
Welcome to Victorian Village. We’re happy you stopped by, and we hope you’ll stay for a while and get to know us better.
Victorian Village offers a full continuum of excellent services on one campus: Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing Care. We also offer short term rehabilitation therapy, as well as various campus assistance—all available if needed. It’s a great place to set down some roots, no matter what your care needs currently are, because we can serve you in your future, too. But to get to know us best, we hope you’ll come for a visit so we can show you our unique community: unique in beauty, unique in living options, and unique in personality. You’ll find a warm and friendly feeling here from those you meet, whether they are resident, family, or staff. And you will also see the aspect of our campus that sets us apart most—our Small House style of Skilled Nursing Care and Rehabilitation Therapy, where everything looks and feels like home.
We hope you experience the Victorian Village difference while you’re here, and just know that if you have any questions, we’d be happy to assist you.
Enjoy Your Visit!
Alex Tarr became Victorian Village’s Campus Manager in 2020. “The positive and welcoming atmosphere that I sensed from everyone at Victorian Village—from the residents and their families to all our employees—exude a warm, healing feeling that is unlike any place I’ve worked before,” he says. Prior to his time at Victorian Village, Alex attended Eastern Illinois University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in health administration. After graduation, he worked as the Admissions Director and Assistant Administrator at other senior living communities before joining the Victorian Village team. “I believe that excellent care can be achieved when you have a full understanding of a resident’s needs,” he says. “When that occurs, you can then provide complete care for the mind, body, and soul. I believe that is something Providence strives for.” When Alex isn’t working with seniors, he enjoys Chicago sports and spending time with family and friends. Alex and his wife Katie, who also works in healthcare, have a cat named Rory. Alex is a proud Licensed Nursing Home Administrator in the state of Illinois.
