A Long-term Commitment to Short-term Rehab.

Just as receiving the finest hospital care is essential, so too is finding the highest quality senior rehabilitation therapy services that are customized to meet your specific needs — in an environment that makes you feel both comfortable and motivated.

That’s what you’ll find at Memorial Care Center — the short-term rehab community with a long history (since 1963) of getting patients from the hospital to home so they can begin living their best lives again. We call what we do “Helpful Healing.” As you compare Memorial Care Center to other senior rehabilitation centers near you, you’ll see why our results are exceptional.

The Ideal Setting for Rehabilitation and Recovery

From the moment you arrive at our senior living center in Belleville, you’ll feel the warmth and attentive care that brings out the best in every patient. That begins with an industry-leading staff-to-patient ratio of 1:10, allowing for more focused and attentive care — particularly with our senior rehabilitation therapy.

You can also rest assured our staff will treat you with great tenderness and professionalism, too— a combination that has consistently resulted in a Five-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Additionally, you’ll find beautiful outdoor spaces at Memorial Care Center (including a short walking trail), lovely common areas for visiting, and newly enhanced rooms — each with a TV and dresser or chest of drawers. As you research senior rehabilitation centers near you, consider that Memorial Care Center also offers activities to keep you engaged between your rehab sessions.

You’ll be impressed by our spacious and modern Therapy Gym. It’s large enough to house a wide range of equipment while still giving you — or your loved one — the open space to truly focus on recovery through senior rehabilitation therapy.Finally, because Memorial Care Center is on the campus of the highly respected Memorial Hospital, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that any unexpected medical care needs are available right next door.


You’ve earned this life, one with comfort in every moment and without worry for the future. A life like this shouldn’t feel like a far-off fantasy. It’s just around the corner, and it’s at Memorial Care Center.
“I’ve needed therapy three times – twice for a hip and once for a knee – and each time I said ‘Please let me go back to Memorial Care Center!’ The therapy is excellent, and I can’t say enough about the nurses, the CNAs, the housekeepers and the activities team. I’m so glad that I came here!”
- Mary M.
“I live by myself in a 2-story house, so it was very important to me to be able to do all of the things I need to do on a daily basis and do them safely. Memorial Care Center did a wonderful job of preparing me for that, and I cannot thank them enough.”
- Jim S.
“Therapy was challenging at first, but it continued to get easier, and it made me feel good that I was improving. I have the team at Memorial Care Center to thank for that – I would have stayed longer if they’d let me!”
- Robert B.

When you choose Memorial Care Center over other senior rehabilitation centers near you, we hope you find it comforting to learn that we consistently earn the coveted Five-Star Rating (the highest possible) by CMS.

We’ve also been named one of America’s Best Nursing Homes for Overall Quality of Care by U.S. News & World Report for 12 years straight.

Customized Senior Rehabilitation Therapy for YOU

Rehab is very different from hospital care. The goal of rehab is to help you to be independent, which means doing as much as you can for yourself. And because you are the key to your rehab success, you must be willing to work with the Memorial Care Center therapy team to complete your treatment at our senior living center in Belleville and, later, with caregivers or alone at home.

While surveying senior rehabilitation centers near you, you may find that some communities only offer certain types of therapy. It is important to fully understand the role that each type of senior rehabilitation therapy will provide in getting you back home and living your best life.

  • Physical Therapy –you may need this type of treatment when health problems make it more difficult to move around and do everyday tasks. In addition to helping you move better, it can restore your physical function and fitness level. Physical therapy services at Memorial Care Center also help improve walking, going up stairs, and getting in and out of bed.
  • Occupational Therapy – this treatment will help you regain independence in the activities of daily living. Services are diverse: teaching personal care techniques (eating, bathing, or dressing), conducting activities to increase strength and coordination, and promoting basic independent living skills.
  • Recreational Therapy – this type of senior rehabilitation therapy is designed to help you return to your previous lifestyle, develop new interests, and learn new skills. Memorial Care Center stands apart from other senior rehabilitation centers near you, empowering you to pursue therapy activities based on your interests: crafts, music, dance, news, exercise groups, and leisure education.
  • Speech Therapy – during speech therapy treatment at Memorial Care Center, speech-language pathologists will assess and treat patients who have suffered vocal and language impairment. Speech therapists can also help patients who have difficulty swallowing, communicating, and/or have cognitive impairments.

Safe Transition Home

Your care team will assess your or your family member’s progress toward a safe transition to your home/community every week and keep you updated on your progress. You will be discharged from our senior rehabilitation therapy community when your physician and care team determine that you have reached the goals identified for a safe return to wherever you call home, or if you require extended services at another level of care. When a projected date for discharge from Memorial Care Center has been set, we will discuss this with you and your family.

Many patients continue their rehab after returning to their homes. This rehab can take place at their home (home health) or in the community (outpatient therapy).Unfortunately, however, going home or returning to your previous setting in the community is not always possible. If a new living arrangement is necessary, our social worker will be available to discuss resources and alternative settings with you, your family, and your physician.
