Integrity Healthcare of Cobden – Location

Sherry Belcher is the Administrator of Integrity Healthcare of Cobden.  She has twenty-five years experience in healthcare.  She has a degree in Social Work and is working on her Masters.  She is a certified Dementia Practitioner.  Sherry’s primary goal is to help her residents to reach their full potential.  She is a ‘hands on’ administrator and it isn’t uncommon to find her outside of her office, doing things that need to be done throughout the facility.  Leading by example is her motto and she practices that on a daily basis.

When she isn’t working, Sherry says “I enjoy raising two handsome boys, Nate and Reese!”  Nate is in college and is a pre-med student.  Reese is an Anna Jonesboro Wildcat football player and Sherry enjoys following the Friday night games. Sherry is devoted to her community and is a member of the Delta Theta Tau Sorority.

Located in a small rural community surrounded by farmland, orchards and forests, Integrity Healthcare of Cobden is a leading provider of long-term care, providing skilled services for long and short term stays.  Our facility offers a full continuum of services and is dedicated to meeting our residents’ physical, medical and emotional needs.

Our 74 bed facility is located on the south side of Cobden, Illinois.  Our facility is VA Contracted, Medicare/Medicaid certified.  Many insurances are accepted and staff can work with clients to verify approval.

Integrity Healthcare of Cobden is a facility that hosts the Adapt of Illinois Geropsychiatric and Special Needs Program.  This program provides specialized psychiatric rehabilitation services to geriatric persons with serious mental illness.  Adapt staff work in conjunction with the facility staff to develop and individualize the plans of care for the residents.  Holistic approaches to meeting medical, mental health and behavioral needs have been adopted as a routine protocol of care for all residents of the home.

Please visit our “Services” page for information about specific types of care provided.

It is so important to maintain partnerships in our communities.  Church groups, clubs and organizations, schools and local businesses often visit our facility and share with our residents.  The Cobden Jr. High Fellowship of Christian Athletes donated Easter Flowers for all our residents! Daffodils galore!  Plenty for each of our residents and plenty more for our table centerpieces.  What a wonderful gift.

Adria N. Ford is the Social Service Director of Integrity Healthcare of Cobden.  She writes …

“I am originally from Cobden, Illinois, having spent several years of my youth living in Baltimore Md. and returning to Cobden in Jr. High to go on to graduate as an “Appleknocker.” I am the oldest of 3 siblings and have always been passionate about caring for others. My mother worked in long term care, and I spent some time in facilities interacting with the elderly from a young age.

I have been married 14 years and I am a mother of 4 amazing children ranging in ages from 1 to 14 years old; Our oldest children are homeschooled. As a family we enjoy spending time outdoors, participating in the life of our church and I am a soccer mom. In my spare time I also enjoy reading fiction/fantasy novels and taking pictures.

I have been blessed to work for Integrity for over 13 years. I have gained so much knowledge and specialized training for Mental Health and the elderly population. I am thankful to be able to advocate for the residents here as well as the relationships with the co-workers that are also a part of this wonderful team.”

As the Social Service Director, Adria does all the tasks associated with her job.  It is when she reaches out to do other unrelated things when we notice her passion the most.   Team Cobden says that Adria has a kind heart and that she is a great team player.  Adria will jump in to help with anything.  It is not uncommon to see her serving refreshments at parties or running the BBQ grill for outdoor events.

Adria is creative and she has computer graphics skills that frequently allow her to help the Administrator with employee appreciation projects and resident party decorations.

We appreciate Adria!
