The Lake County Board, Winchester House Advisory Board, local officials and members of the community gathered at Winchester House yesterday in Libertyville to say farewell to the beloved skilled nursing care facility by remembering the past, while looking to the future.
For more than 150 years, Winchester House served vulnerable elderly and disabled individuals in Lake County, including twenty-four-hour skilled nursing and rehabilitative care that provided for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and related illnesses.
Winchester House is scheduled to be taken down this fall. The Lake County Board will consider future use for the property at a later date.
Through the efforts of Lake County United, Winchester House has been replaced by Thrive of Lake County located at 850 US Highway 45, Mundelein, IL 60060. Thrive opened in the summer of 2020.
