Star Care at Renaissance

Star Care at Renaissance -- Skilled Treatment and Rehabilitation Overview: We provide long term residential care for children, young adults, and adults with developmental disabilities. Renaissance Care Center is a unique setting in which skilled nursing care, case management, and family integration are combined to enhance the overall quality of life of each individual for which we care. Definition of a Developmental Disability: A severe, chronic disability of a person which is caused by a mental or physical impairment, or a combination of both, such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or autism and is manifested before the age of 22 and is likely to continue indefinitely. This can include a brain injury that has occured before the age of 22. It can also include any other "related condition" that mimics the effects of an intellectual disability, as determined by the Department of Human Services. Typical Resident: Most of our residents have severe and profound cognitive deficits. They also have complex medical needs such as seizure disorder, severe Cerebral Palsy, respiratory inefficiencies, and thermoregulation problems. Types of Clinical Care routinely provided: -- Tracheotomy Care -- Medication Management -- PICC/Central line care -- Ostomy Care -- Enternal Nutrition and TPN -- Oxygen Therapy and Monitoring -- Seizure Management -- Traumatic Brain Injury Services -- Thermal Regulation -- Wound Prevention and Care for all stages of Wounds -- Post-Surgical Care -- Respiratory Therapy -- Orthopedic Services including seating and mobility -- Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies -- Vision, Audiological and Dental Services Age of Residents: The individuals we serve range in age from birth to late adulthood. Our facility becomes their home, and as long as they require the services we provide, there is no need for them to "age out" of our placement. Medical Director: Our Medical Director is Dr. Kenneth Krock of the Graham Medical Group of Canton, IL. He is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics. He serves on the Board at Graham Hospital, and has many connections with OSF St. Francis Medical Center, as well as the Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria. He works diligently to ensure parents and family are always involved in their loved one's care, and is known for his commitment to open communication with families and the necessary specialists. Care Staff: RNs, LPNs, and CNAs provide the care, as well as a Respiratory Therapy Consultant. Our average staff to resident ration is 5.3 residents to 1 nursing staff. Referral Sources and Working Relationships: We receive referrals and requests for our services from a wide varitey of reputable hospitals and organizations such as the Children's Hospital of Illinois @ Peoria, the Rehab Institute of Chicago, Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, the Department of Specialized Care for Children, and the Department of Children and Family Services. We also receive requests for our services form other Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled due to these facilities' inability to care for a temporary or permanent skilled medical need. Location: We are located in the heart of Illinois, in the small but growing community of Canton. We are fortunate to have the advantages of nearby specialty hospitals, doctors, and clinics, while still being "small town" enough for the community to embrace our residents and welcome them into their schools, workshops, restaurants, parks, churches, and community events. Educational Services: The local Canton school developed a program in the nearby middle school to meet the needs of our residents. All residents who are 3 to <23 years old attend the program, which is designed specifically to meet their physical, medical, and educational needs. Advantages of Renaissance Care Center: -- Decreases length of stay in hospital setting -- Provides needed family support and assistance for services -- Excellent educational program located within the local Canton Public School -- Day Programming tailored to meet each individual's need after graduation from school -- Exceptional Care Certification -- IDPA Accepted -- People of all ages are accepted -- "no aging out"
