    Hallmark is a privately owned 70-bed facility in the heart of Pekin, IL that is Medicare and Medicaid certified. Our Vision: A culture of aging that is life affirming, satisfying, humane and meaningful. We recognize our need to create ways of living and working together differently from the traditional models. Our aim is nothing less than transforming the culture of aging in America. Our facility is a more resident-centered “social” model rather than a medical model. The social model encourages and welcomes residents to have individualized care to the maximum extent possible in a home setting through changes in environment, schedules, and resident care. The goal is to change the culture within the facility by restoring control to the residents and creating an environment that is a more socially and biologically diverse human habitat. The main change has come about in the dietary service. Traditionally, long-term care food service has consisted of a tray line, where the same meal was served to all residents, with one substitute available. At Hallmark House Nursing Center, the entire kitchen was revamped, new equipment installed, and staff trained in a totally different way of cooking. Equipment not normally found in traditional long-term care kitchens, such as a char-broiler, deep fryer, and cold station for making sandwiches and salads, as well as a cappuccino/hot chocolate machine and a juice bar were installed. The residents can order the special of the day, or from a menu that includes anything from an omelet to surf and turf. The kitchen is open 24 hours a day Monday through Friday and from 5 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on weekends, and residents may eat at any time. Staff from all aspects of service have been trained to take orders and serve the residents in the dining room. Hallmark has a beagle named Octavian that lives at the facility and residents have brought their pets with them from home. The residents truly appreciate the benefit of having pets around on a full time basis. The staff provides for their physical needs such as food and toileting. The residents benefit from their constant need to be petted and loved. The residents and staff plant a garden in the spring and have reaped the benefits by eating tomatoes, onions, peppers, green beans and radishes. The comments of “This is from our garden” is truly rewarding to all. Hallmark has a beatiful Spa that is staffed with CNAs 7 days a weeks on the first and second shift. All natural body products are used and residents have the choice of aroma therapy and music during bathing. Special attention is given to the requests of the residents. Activity Staff are scheduled 7 days a week and every evening. A van provides outings to area restaraunts, casinos, fishing, wineries, musicals and many other events. We are also offering resident choices regarding their care, bathing, sleeping, and other aspects of their life. Life here is truly “Resident Centered”. Hallmark has provided care using a unique care delivery model called Care Management*. The nurses here at Hallmark House have embraced this style of nursing and have become very close to their residents and families. This is just one more aspect of how we truly value our residents and provide individualized care. The families are considered to be part of our team of care providers, and their input is invaluable to us in the formation of our plan of care for their loved one.
