Marklund develops collaborations with other organizations so that children and adults with profound developmental disabilities and medically challenged conditions receive the support and resources they need.
Marklund has partnerships with area educational institutions including Chamberlain College of Nursing, Harper College and College of DuPage. Nursing and therapy students participate in clinical rotations at the Marklund Children’s Home in Bloomingdale and Marklund at Mill Creek campus (therapy only) in Geneva. The experience at Marklund educates students on providing care to individuals who have complex medical needs and developmental disabilities.
Additionally, we collaborate with the Illinois Respite Coalition and agencies within the coalition to improve education and awareness regarding the need for respite care.
