Get Well, Go Home

As a key component of the service-and-care landscape in the Quad Cities for more than 50 years, Illini Restorative Care offers physical, occupational, and speech therapy for individuals transitioning from hospital stays, in addition to providing an environment for those needing long-term clinical care.

Our short-term rehabilitation environment well-regarded in the eastern Iowa and western Illinois area is differentiated by therapy involving virtual reality and cutting-edge technology and equipment. We focus on the timely and thorough restoration of our clients’ health and strength so they can return home as quickly as possible.

As a WellSpire community, Illini Restorative Care offers the best of its parent organizations — WesleyLife, a leader in services and care for older adults, and Genesis Health System, the Quad Cities’ most trusted name in healthcare.

  • Visits from loved ones are welcomed and encouraged in clients' suites, our indoor common areas, and outdoor courtyards
  • We place an emphasis on wellness that goes beyond physical exercise
  • We provide sheltered care, bridging the gap between independent living and more involved levels of service

Welcome to Illini Restorative Care!

At Illini Restorative Care, we tell everyone we have the very best team — and we mean it. The quality care you’ll find here is second to none, and the fact that our team feels like family carries over to the way they care for our clients. IRC is a very positive, enriching, and welcoming place to be, and our outcomes illustrate that fact.

Short-Term Rehabilitation

Short-term rehabilitation — or skilled rehabilitation — is something many people require when they're discharged from a hospital stay, but not yet ready to go home. It's most commonly needed after a prolonged illness or surgery, such as joint replacement. You don't have to be a client of IRC to rehab with us, as our services are available to the general public.

Short-term rehabilitation is designed to help you get well and go home as quickly as possible.

Short-Term Rehabilitation

The reality of rehabilitation after a hospital stay is made a little easier at IRC. We work alongside your medical team to make sure you receive exactly what you need to get back home quickly.

Our rehabilitation professionals specialize in orthopedic injury and surgery, stroke, neuromuscular insufficiency, and cardiac condition rehabilitation. With occupation, physical, or speech therapy options, our team will tailor a rehabilitation plan to your needs.


Sheltered Care

Sheltered care is similar to assisted living, with several additional features:

  • 24/7 nursing care
  • Accommodation of specialty diets
  • Access to additional care as needed
  • An all-inclusive rate

When assisted living is not enough care or the cost of home care is too much, sheltered care may be the answer.

Long-Term Care

When people think of long-term care, the term “nursing home” often comes to mind. It’s important to understand that, at IRC, long-term care is more than a bed in a hospital setting. Here, it’s a vibrant environment with a team of compassionate medical professionals and skilled caregivers who treat your loved one like family.

Long-term care is defined by top-of-the-line, compassionate care in a well-equipped, homelike setting. Our teams are committed to our clients and find great satisfaction in connecting with them and their families.

Restorative Care

We also offer restorative nursing programs for our clients to maintain their level of function and independence in areas such as walking, dressing, and dining. Our restorative nurses and aides work hand in hand with the therapy team to develop an individualized program to suit your needs. Watch this video to see restorative care in action!

IRC invites you to live your best life — one that focuses not on limitations, but on possibilities as you stay engaged in the greater community, your neighborhood, your city, and your world. With a focus on health and well-being and a person-centered model of care, IRC is honored to serve you or someone you love.
