AristaCare at Norwood Terrace has been a presence in Plainfield and the surrounding areas for 15 years and has a reputation for excellent nursing, rehabilitation, and sub acute care (recovery after a hospitalization) and for bringing health programs to groups in the community. A current focus for AristaCare at Norwood Terrace, known for its cardiac rehab, wound care, and outstanding rehabilitation therapy, is Diabetes.
