Presence Life Connections

The right choice for after hospital rehabilitation

Presence McAuley Manor ExteriorThe team at Presence McAuley Manor, a Joint Commission-accredited nursing and rehabilitation center, understands that after a planned hip or knee surgery, unexpected illness or injury, you or a family member may need additional personal therapy outside the hospital. The experts at the newly renovate Presence Villa Franciscan designed a special short-stay rehabilitation program to help you, or your loved one, reach your recovery goals. Plus, our building is ideally located near major expressways in Aurora, Presence McAuley Manor is on the campus of Presence Mercy Medical Center.

Joint replacement recovery program

Our compassionate, understanding team developed a special joint replacement recovery program that allows each patient and their dedicated team to create personalized treatment plans for each person, based on the patient's goals.  We begin by listening. Then, together, we create a personal plan to recovery that may include therapy, nursing care or more if needed. And, we've added on all the extras, including private rooms, attentive staff and so much more.  Our entire team is here to support you, encourage you and help you. Tour today.

We want you to enjoy life while you’re here recovering. We offer beautiful rooms and plenty of places to recover in peace. And you’ll enjoy three delicious meals a day, cooked from scratch, plus snacks of course. As part of Presence Health, the largest Catholic health system based in Illinois, we also want to make sure your spiritual needs are met. That’s why we offer a full schedule of religious services in our beautiful on-site chapel.  In addition to short-stay rehabilitation, we also offer skilled nursing care, as well as respite care.
