Statement of Mission
It is the purpose of this organization and of its employees to provide a home-like atmosphere, and a feeling of security for its residents, and to provide the best nursing care, food, and safety regardless of race, creed, national origin, and social or economic status.
Rooks Co. Senior Services was built in 1964 and was licensed to provide nursing care to 52 residents. At the time, the organization was called Rooks Co. Home and it was owned and operated under the auspices of the Rooks County Commissioners.
In 2006, the County converted the Nursing home to a not-for-profit corporation under the IRS code 501(c)(3)and renamed the organization to Rooks Co. Senior Services. The 501(c)(3) IRS status allows an organization to be eligible to receive grants and donations to help fund the organization's programs and services. The County still retains ownership of the building and major assets and has a lease arrangement with the non-profit corporation to manage the program and services. The County still provides maintenance and upkeep to the buildings.
More recently Rooks Co. Senior Services has re-titled the organization to Redbud Village with the nurisng home to be called Redbud Village and the new assisted living to be called Redbud Estates.
