Second Joliet Nursing Home To Close Within A Year

January 16, 2024

A Joliet nursing and rehab facility is closing its doors. Salem Village located at 1314 Rowell Avenue has been an option for elder care in the Joliet area for well over four decades.

Last Thursday, staff and residents were told that Salem Village will be closing its doors as of March 15, 2024.

The reason for the closure of the privately owned nursing home is that the census is down. Only 132 residents are currently in Salem Village with the max occupancy of 272. That’s the lowest census in 40 years.
