"Illuminated by Love" is our motto and has been from the very beginning of the Home. The seal depicts an extended helping hand, holding a light in the darkness. This light is the North Adams Home -a light set against the darkness, which for some is despair, and for others might be the twilight years of life without a sense of purpose. The North Adams Home thus offers hope and a purpose for life, and becomes a light illuminated by love.

Our professional staff provides loving care for the whole individual...physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. It is our firm belief that the majority of ailing senior citizens can be rehabilitated through programmed motivation and stimulation, to have and to hold God-given rights to enjoy the beauty of life, and an opportunity to live life to its fullest. Programs are developed for each resident. We encourage social interaction - the greatest combatant to loneliness and depression. Community involvement in the home is strongly promoted. Frequent visits by family and friends help residents feel that they are a part of the mainstream of life's activities.

North Adams Home is a truly unique, not-for-profit facility providing care for those in need of a loving home environment. Regulated by the State of Illinois, it is a community owned and supported facility. Known to be one of the finest skilled nursing homes, North Adams offers the best of physical and social care to its more than 100 residents. Since opening in 1977, North Adams has continued to provide excellent care for all.
