The lighting in the parking lots and the Glidden Road entrance is faulty and needs total replacement. Thankfully, this has happened during the summer with long days. As the days are getting shorter, the Glidden road entrance may be hard to see after dark. Several county departments have worked on this to get it fixed properly. We have to relocate the lights, trench and bury new wiring, and buy new lights and poles. The lights and poles are specialty items that have been on order and will not be delivered until September.
So, until the lights are back in action, PLEASE USE THE DRESSER ROAD ENTRANCE AFTER DARK
Thank you for your patience,
Cathy Anderson, Administrator


The DeKalb County Rehab & Nursing Center (RNC) has been in existence since 1853. We are the oldest and largest health care provider in DeKalb County. Beginning as a Poor Farm, the facility has evolved over generations to a progressive, skilled nursing center that is highly regarded County-wide for its quality nursing care and for its commitment to improving daily life for seniors with healthcare needs. The RNC is a 190-bed state-of-the-art building located just north of Northern Ilinois University.


Our resident rooms have private bathrooms and a maximum 2-person occupancy. A limited number of private rooms are available for residents with special needs. There is ample space for sitting and socializing.


We specialize in both short and long-term nursing and rehabilitative services. We are licensed by the State Illinois Department of Public Health and Certified to participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs. We offer an alarmed and secured environment for the safety and well-being of all we care for. We also have a secured Dementia Care Unit with a gated courtyard and view of the wetlands. This unit specializes in the care of those with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and Related Dementia.
