The Waterford Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre sits on Chicago’s Far North Side, within walking distance of Lake Michigan. Owned for 25 years by Danny Shabat and his family, the nursing home provides a hospitable atmosphere in which to deliver first-rate, personalized health care. Danny Shabat began his career in the health services industry working in the nursing facility, learning the profession first-hand prior to venturing into ownership of the business.
Daniel Shabat and the staff at The Waterford strive to provide quality long-term care in a home-like environment. Unlike at larger, corporate-owned nursing facilities, oversight of residents at The Waterford involves more individualized attention. Resident life includes nutritious cuisine prepared to specific dietary requirements and served in the main dining room. Family and friends are welcome to dine with The Waterford residents at any time.
At The Waterford, residents enjoy meaningful pastimes carefully crafted by recreation professions. The Waterford strives to keep residents energized through individual and group activities. Monthly fieldtrips allow residents an opportunity to tour Chicago landmarks, take in a movie, and even enjoy dining at a local restaurant. Additionally, residents have the option of relaxing on the grounds in a secure and beautifully landscaped outside patio and shaded gardens.
A full array of personal care services awaits the residents at The Waterford. An in-house beauty salon offers male and female residents an opportunity to stay neatly coiffed. Housekeeping and laundry personnel remain available seven days a week. To protect the well-being of its residents and to promote a high-quality lifestyle, The Waterford provides smoke-free accommodations, regular religious services, and internal banking and security for valuables.
