Family member a one year resident. Clean physical plant.. Varied social, in-house entertainment. Minimal food served at meals. Pre-Vatican II, Catholic environment. Limited staff. Positive "face" put on by staff in visitor presence. Rough, rude verbal abuse when visitor is not observed. (I was visiting in resident 's dark room. Staff did not see me as they entered. Mean, rough, remarks made before becoming aware of my presence.) Poor communication with family for conferences. Limited staff doctor visits. Fall out of wheelchair over six months ago, leg wound not healed. RN claims she knows nothing about healing, night wound care would only know. Mother Theresa Home, Private pay resident (first floor) restricted to monitored, alarmed wheelchair at all times. My family member came into facility walking, but can't walk now. I understand the facility can collect more Medicare payments for wheelchair ridden residents. I do not know how true that is. Conversation with your loved one are sometimes monitored by staff who move in close to your group on another pretence to ease drop. Resident's rooms are monitored, too. Go outside to talk. For $130,000/year before medication or physician visits, I would recommend keeping your family member at home and go through the difficult task of finding appropriate in-house care. This institution is better than many, but not worth the cost for what you get.

We visited several facilities in the area, looking for the right place for our parents, age 94 and 98. They had lived in their home for 56 years, but it had 4 flights of stairs and was becoming more and more dangerous for them. We were impressed by the compassionate and friendly staff and the engaging and friendly residents as well as by the facility itself. While in their home, Dad had gone to daily Mass until he could no longer drive. He missed that. The chapel in Franciscan Village made it possible for him to renew that daily joy. Because a larger unit was not available when we wanted to move, the Administration at FV offered a smaller unit until the larger one would be available. Further, Franciscan Village has 3 levels of care available--independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing. As it turned out, Dad had a stroke in early March and was moved to Mother Theresa skilled nursing facility. Mom was able to walk to visit him whenever she wanted. It was a blessing. And when he passed a month after his stroke, residents and staff reached out to Mom in any number of ways to help her navigate this tsunami. We're VERY grateful that we found Franciscan Village and moved Mom and Dad when we did. And we're VERY grateful that Franciscan Village is the caring, compassionate place we believed it to be.

Franciscan Village was the fifth one we went to and we liked the feel of the place. We liked the residents; they were all friendly, happy and cheerful. That was our first impression; it felt very relaxed and comfortable. We we’re impressed with that. The staff is great. In fact, they went out of their way to find an apartment for my father because they live in a tri-level and the stairs were dangerous. Even though they wanted a larger apartment, they just put them in a smaller one until a bigger one opens up, which was very nice. They bent over backwards. The facility is beautiful. It is much warmer and inviting.

My relative is a resident of this facility. I am not impressed by the environment, services, or staff. I am disappointed that my relative needs to live there.

Franciscan village is very nice, and it’s got a nice exercise facility like a gym. A lot of amenities are right there in the property. It has a nice layout of the rooms and the pricing is good. The rooms are roomy enough. The staff is very good, friendly, informative, and helpful. The dining facility is nice and they offer a good variety of food.

We have selected a place to move to. The top of our list is Franciscan Village. We are moving to what they call a garden home half a block away from the main building, so it's just a short walk. In the main building, they have a large dining room, a snack bar, workout facilities, and a library. We are able to live independent with a 2-bedroom apartment. It's what we were looking for. The staff bends over backwards to take care of you. Franciscan Village is a Catholic community. They have their own chapel, and along with that, they do have some of the nuns living right there near the people so they can associate with each other. I find that very relaxing. They're pretty filled up with activities for everybody.

We liked Franciscan Village very much but we decided to wait a while. We went to see a separate house with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It was very nice. We liked best that we had a separate house for ourselves. The lady who showed us the house, the rooms and the facilities was very nice. They had a PT space for the residents, too.

As A Rehabilitation Specialist, I had the pleasure of assisting my students in a internship that lasted a few months. Upon entering you cant help but notice the cleanliness and professionalism of the staff. Franciscsan Village also showed exemplary performance in the area of activities that involved the residents and kept them fully attentive throughtout all programs. Francisan Village also has plenty of activities geared toward alzheimer patients that helps them with memory recognition and everyday living. One of the most troubling situations I have known over the years with nursing homes were how soon residents were taken care of after acccidents. Franciscan Village has a response team that seem to respond immediately to all acccidental situtation. that required attention such as clean ups etc. Overall in conclusion I would have to say anyone who may be looking for a nursing home and assisted living in the Lemont ,Ill area Franciscan Village comes highly recomendded and suggested to visit first before all others. Thank You
