Resident-Family-Centered Comprehensive Care
Lakewood offers families and residents the opportunity to participate in helping an R.N. develop the personalized care plan. When families and staff partner together as the care team, it can enhance the quality of the resident’s life. It also helps the nurse to customize a more accurate, effective care plan. Comprehensive care addresses the mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and physical needs of the “whole” person. Our goal is to improve the resident’s life in ways that will bring them happiness, contentment, and feelings of security.
We encourage families and residents to partner with Lakewood’s staff and work together with us as the care team.
Extended care services provided to patients needing additional support following a hospital discharge.
All-inclusive care that addresses the mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and physical needs of people. When you care for the “whole person”, you will learn how to improve their life in ways that will bring them happiness and contentment as well as feelings of security.
Ongoing, without interruption. Continuous care is another way to say “a continuum of care.” It refers to the concept that when a person’s health status changes or declines, the health care provider is able to provide the next higher level of necessary care that the patient’s health requires.
A philosophy of care that focuses on providing compassionate, palliative care for people who have 6 months or less to live. When curative treatment is no longer an option, professionals focus on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress associated with the life-limiting illness or terminal disease. During this difficult time, Lakewood’s goal is to improve the quality of life for both the resident and their family.
Lakewood’s staff will continue to be the primary care givers. We will work along- side each family’s designated hospice agency that provides medications, equipment, supplies, and additional staff services. Lakewood will serve as the essential care partner and be at your family’s side every step of the way.
Extended care. Long term care is a variety of services which help meet both the medical and non-medical needs of people with a chronic illness or disability who cannot care for themselves for long periods. Our focus is on providing premium, personalized assisted care and support services. Our goal is to maximize each resident’s quality of life.
Compassionate, comfort care. Palliative care provides relief from the symptoms and side effects of life-limiting and chronic illnesses. Palliative care can begin during any stage of an illness. This care helps people live longer and happier lives.
Temporary relief care. Respite care is designed to give a primary caregiver a break in providing care for others.
