I visited this facility
I would not recommend Central Nursing in Chicago, Illinois. I would rate this facility below average. The building, interior and exterior was all in need of updating at best, a good cleaning at worst. An older facility is acceptable if it presents as clean and organized. This facility did not. I could not find anything appealing or inviting. The common areas and rooms were dirty. I also did not like the fact that some rooms could and did accommodate for 3 residents. During my tour, I did not see any private room options. I would not recommend this nursing home.

(Also referred to as Central Nursing and Rehab; 2450 N. Central) This is a large facility located in an urban setting near the Fullerton and Central intersection. It is a generally safe residential area of the city with fairly well maintained sidewalks and ample street parking, also readily accessible by public transportation. It is a pretty sizable facility and provides care for many residents with both mental health and physical needs. Up until fairly recently it was a family-owned facility, only taken over by corporate management in recent years. The new management is planning extensive rehabilitation and remodel of the building, which is older and generally outdated in aesthetic, finishes and fixtures. There is a decent sized , fenced-in outdoor area that is used primarily by residents who smoke, but is also available for visiting. The interior common areas are adequate but by no means plush. The facility is typically very clean and well kept. Rooms are of average size and appear dated and somewhat institutional. Some rooms have poor natural light and appear dark. The food is average to good, probably better than one would anticipate though nothing to rave about. Staff is exceptional however, with many long-time employees with much greater than average tenure and a clear commitment to ensuring the wellbeing of the residents and overall facility. Staffing is typically good with enough staff on shift to meet resident needs. Kind, compassionate care is most typically the norm here.
