A specially designed rehab program for the memory-impaired
The McGaw Care Center is pleased to offer physical, occupational and speech therapies for older adults experiencing cognitive impairment and other forms of dementia at our residential campus in Evanston. Presbyterian Homes and The McGaw Care Center has been serving older adults, including those with cognitive impairment, for more than 100 years and we understand the complex issues of dementia. Drawing on the Presbyterian Homes heritage of providing quality rehabilitation services for older adults, this new program meets a critical need for patients with cognitive impairment.
Older adults experiencing cognitive impairment require a unique set of skills from professionals that are familiar with dementia. The Westminster Place health care team is ready to provide new opportunities for an enhanced and enriched quality of life.

How often will I receive therapy services?
It depends on your needs. At our senior rehabilitation center in Evanston, each person receives an individualized treatment plan based on their specific situation, physician orders and therapist recommendations. We’ll provide the most appropriate services as recommended by your therapy team after your admission.
Is occupational therapy the same as physical therapy?
It’s similar in that it helps restore strength and mobility. However, occupational therapy focuses on helping people improve their ability to perform daily tasks by modifying the physical environment and using adaptive techniques and equipment to increase independence.
What will happen when I’m ready to return to my home?
Prior to your discharge, we’ll develop a plan that determines any equipment needs, outpatient therapy or in-home services you may require.
