Award-winning care

A skilled nursing care residence in Evanston, Illinois

When someone close to you needs skilled nursing care, you want it all—quality care, comfort, and personal attention. Simply put, an enhanced quality of life. All that and more can be found at Mather Pavilion.

Mather Pavilion is an award-winning senior living residence for those who require skilled nursing care, memory support, or rehabilitation services. Located in a pleasant Evanston neighborhood near Northwestern University, Mather Pavilion offers a comfortable setting where older adults enjoy companionship, encouragement, and activities that stimulate mind, body, and spirit.

Quality care is based on quality staff

At Mather Pavilion, staff members are specially trained to meet the needs of older adults. They have direct access to nationally recognized programs developed by Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging—programs that have been shown to result in measurable improvements in quality of life.

Our remarkably low staff turnover (10% in 2013 vs. 50+% nationwide) speaks volumes about the commitment of our staff. And satisfied staff results in satisfied residents.

Backed by award-winning research and training

Mather Pavilion is fueled by nationally recognized research, education, and techniques developed by Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging. Members of our staff—from administrative and maintenance to nursing and concierge—undergo specialized training to ensure that touch points of care meet our standards.
