Welcome to Lakeside Special Care Center, a five-star facility specializing in psychiatric care. Together with our nursing staff, our goal is to help patients achieve their highest level of functional independence.

We provide long-term care to patients 18 years of age or older, both male and female, who display severe and persistent psychiatric impairment and whose adaptive functioning is moderately to severely impaired. These patients require 24-hour care. Due to their chronic mental illness, admission to a standard skilled nursing facility is prohibitive. We employ our own therapists, who work together with our nursing staff to help patients achieve their highest level of functional independence.
Special Treatment Program
We have 69 beds in our program, dedicated to improving or preventing deterioration of our residents’ current level of functioning. The recovery, wellness, and discovery approach involves collaborating with the resident to facilitate hope and empowerment, with the goals of counteracting internal and external “stigma,” improving self-esteem, encouraging resident self-management of his or her life and making his or her own choices, reintegrating the resident into his or her community as a contributing member, and achieving a satisfying and fulfilling life.
