Presence Life Connections

Care in a comfortable place. Day and night.

PLC-Villa FranciscanPresence Villa Franciscan is perfect for individuals who require additional rehabilitative or advanced nursing care, but don’t necessarily need to remain in the hospital. Whether you’re recovering from hip surgery, cancer, or a stroke, you can count on us 24/7. You’ll receive advanced care in a comfortable setting. We’re accredited by The Joint Commission. And we’re here for you.

Presence Villa Franciscan is ideally located in the heart of Joliet on the campus of Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center. In addition to skilled nursing care, Presence Villa Franciscan also offers short-stay rehabilitation and memory care.

Respite care is also available, which gives full-time caregivers a break so they can recharge, refresh and restore their life balance. Rest assured that our skilled care community will provide high-quality care, and we'll meet with you to discuss the right level of care for your loved one.

We want you to enjoy life while you’re here. We have a variety of activities and social outings each week. Enjoy three delicious meals a day, cooked from scratch. 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 chapel and on-site chaplains to provide support.
