Skilled Nursing at Victorian Village

small house skilled nursingA new style of Care: Small House Skilled Nursing

The “Small House” model of care is a new approach to skilled nursing, rehab, and memory care. Providence Life Services was the first to bring this style of care to Illinois, and we also now offer it in St. John, Indiana, as well.

Each Small House skilled nursing home building houses only 10–30 people. Residents have private rooms, and those rooms are positioned to surround an open kitchen/dining area as well as a community living room. Residents are encouraged to participate in the life of the house to whatever extent they are able — helping with housekeeping, working in the garden, making decisions about outings, and more. People who are there to receive rehab will be encouraged to make actual household activities part of their rehab regimen — folding laundry, setting the table, and delivering mail, for example. Such involvement gives people a sense of purpose while exercising cognitive and motor skills.
