Every person is unique, and everyplan of care reflects it. Developed in collaboration with you and your physician, the plan reflects your goals and your preferences. For example, if you have a restricted diet, a cultural preference, or simply want to schedule your therapy sessions later in the day so you can sleep in, we will accommodate you. To better understand your needs, we are proud to have a culturally diverse and multilingual staff.

- For those who need a temporary care solution, we also offer the option of Respite Care
“I received the best of care at Uptown. I was frightened coming here because I didn’t know anyone. The staff here welcomed me with open arms and tender care. Now I am ready to go home because of the extensive therapy I received here.”
“When I was ready to be discharged the Social Service team at Uptown arranged for home health nurses and aides to come see me in my apartment and to help me stay on course with my doctor’s appointments and medications. I cannot thank the staff enough for all that they have done. I would not hesitate to recommend this facility to anyone needing their services.”
“When the doctors and social workers told me that they wanted to send to a long term care facility I was hesitant because I knew that meant I would not be returning home as soon as I thought. I knew that I wanted to be close to my apartment on the north side of Chicago and also wanted to continue seeing my doctor from Weiss Hospital. I was able to participate in physical and occupational therapy that allowed me to get stronger and taught me several exercises that I still use today. After 4 months, I was ready to return to my apartment.”
“I was immediately impressed with the cleanliness of this center and with how friendly the staff treated me. I found the assistance the nurses provided me to be very helpful and allowed me to stay on course with my medications.”
