Life’s Journey Senior Living – Mattoon is a unique memory care community. We provide 24 hour nursing and assistance for your loved one with an emphasis on individualized care and attention for all levels of dementia. Our home is set up into two buildings with four separate houses providing a cozy environment which includes; private dining, spacious living rooms with fireplaces, studio apartments, outdoor activity areas including patios, gardens, gazebo, and koi fish pond.

Located off Interstate 57, and under an hour’s drive to Interstates 70 and 72.  A small town of eighteen thousand, Mattoon grew its roots during the railroad explosion of the late nineteenth century and has maintained a small town charm throughout the years

The area boasts two nursing colleges; the nationally recognized Lake Land College and Lakeview College of Nursing.  In addition, Eastern Illinois University is just fifteen minutes away with its acclaimed Gerontology program.

Our proximity to these schools affords us the opportunity to employ some of the best and brightest to care for your loved one.

Our staff to neighbor ratio is what sets us apart from other communities, and when combined with our individualized approaches for all levels of care we feel Life’s Journey can offer comfort, acceptance, love and support for the individual and their family.
