Marklund provides services to adults with severe and profound disabilities at all three of its facilities:
Marklund in Mill Creek, Geneva
Marklund Philip Center, Bloomingdale
Marklund Wasmond Center, Elgin
Located in Geneva, IL, Marklund’s 25-acre Mill Creek campus was designed to create an environment of community and support for adults with developmental disabilities.
Each of the six 16-bed homes located on the Mill Creek Campus, is licensed as an Intermediate Care Facility for Developmentally Disabled adults (ICF-DD). We have a Medical Director who oversees all of the medical care and doctors orders for the residents on campus.
Homes feature two hydrotherapy bathtubs, a snoezelen therapy room, a multipurpose/dining room, a full service kitchen, and seven double occupancy rooms and two single rooms equipped with state-of-the-art beds to provide residents with the highest level of comfort.
The ratio of staff to clients in each home is 1:5 and there is one Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional per home for case management (ratio is 1:16 staff to client). Staff nurses provide specialized care 24 hours a day.
In addition to therapeutic activities and outings planned to help clients reach their potential, residents also go to the Marklund Hyde Center (located on campus) for the development training program, the hydrotherapy whirlpool and pool, a full-service dental office, a barber shop, a kitchen and cafeteria.
Also located on campus for residents to enjoy is the first Miracle League baseball diamond in Illinois, which features a rubberized surface ideal for wheelchair use.
The Marklund Wasmond Center at Little Angels and The Cathy Freeman Center for Developmental Training are adjacent to one another on 5 acres of land, located on Rt. 58 on the eastern edge of Elgin, Illinois. The residential portion of the facility is home to 57 residents--children and young adults--most of whom share rooms or suites with 1, 2 or 3 roommates. Rooms are painted and decorated to express the clients' personal interests. Those in suites share a common bathing area which is situated in between the two adjoining rooms. The building surrounds a beautiful outdoor courtyard, giving clients and staff a chance to enjoy the outdoors in a pleasant, safe environment right on site. Other amenities include a spacious activities/gathering area, beautiful and relaxing bird aviary, Snoezelen room, and hydrotherapy pool.
With a Medical Director on-call 24 hours a day to meet the medical needs of the residents, the care team also includes licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants who are also on staff 24 hours a day. Our nursing team is specially trained to care for complex medical needs such as intensive nutritional management, seizure control, respiratory therapy, tracheostomy care, gastrostomy care and oxygen therapy. A QIDP serving as case manager, and various therapists support the resident care plans as well.
As Marklund's original facility, the Marklund Philip Center in Bloomindale also provides care to medically fragile adults with severe and profound developmental disabilities. Click here for full details about this campus.
