Senior Services Unit
LRGHealthcare’s Senior Services Unit is a unique place. Located at Lakes Region General Hospital, the private unit is dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable atmosphere for our elderly patients to regain their health.
Many of the nurses working in Senior Services are gerontology certified, and they all have years of experience working with the elderly.
Almost Home Program
It can be scary for a patient to go home after a hospital stay; especially when living alone. Recognizing this, LRGHealthcare created (and is the ONLY hospital to offer) the Almost Home program.
Through this program, staff provides patient education in a 'home-like' environment where patients can practice their skills to care for themselves at home. They provide the education and experience to improve the patient's ability to understand the purpose of their medications and how to take them correctly, manage wound care, prepare meals, care for any respiratory needs, walk, climb stairs and get in/out of bed, any of the simple tasks many take for granted.
With Almost Home staff can assess the patient abilities and send them home when ready, or arrange further assistance if needed.
