According to the AARP, 68% of seniors will spend at least some time in a skilled nursing facility. As part of our Lakeview LifeCare, should a resident need skilled nursing and/or assisted living care, they will be able to remain on campus, with access to all of Lakeview Village’s amenities.
Centerpointe Care Center serves 120 residents with physical and cognitive deficits. The second floor specializes in caring for residents with memory impairment, and those who are likely to wander.
Updates to Centerpointe Care Center, our on-site skilled nursing facility
In 2014, Lakeview Village remodeled the two neighborhoods on the first floor of Centerpointe including the front room, dining room and living room. Updates included new paint, lighting, flooring, and furniture and a redesign of the space to provide more community areas. We also added a backyard for residents to enjoy, including a water feature, patio, walking path and garden area.
In 2015, Lakeview Village remodeled the two neighborhoods on the second floor of Centerpointe, along with expanding the front room, creating a small Sun Room, relocating and remodeling the beauty shop, and relocating and remodeling of the second floor therapy space.
Promoting Active Lifestyles
The Lakeview Village Life Enhancement team works closely with the nursing staff to assist residents who wish to visit the backyard or the Lakeview Village Community Garden. The team also helps residents take walks inside the community and attend events on the campus.
For the past three years, Lakeview Village has planned and hosted a larger-scale, off campus outing in May. Previous events have included a picnic and games and walking around a small zoo. This outing is popular will the residents; typically, 80 to 90 of our 120 residents participated. All residents are accompanied by a volunteer.
Centerpointe staff has also established Men’s and Women’s groups. These groups are resident-driven and participate in a variety of activities on and off campus. In 2015, residents took trips to the movies, shopping, museums, and restaurants, to name a few. Centerpointe residents also attend on-campus events like our annual Flag Day BBQ and Trunk or Treat on Halloween.
Centerpointe residents visit many other areas of our campus daily from the Bistro in Eastside Terrace to Fountain Lake at Northpointe.
