Levels of Care
Summit View of Lake City offers four levels of care to our residents to fit the specific patient's abilities and medical needs.
Skilled Care: Skilled care patients come to us directly from the hospital when it's necessary to continue recovery in a skilled medical facility. Their time with us, whether short-term or for a longer stay, usually focuses on rehabilitation from their injury or illness. They can be people of any age who, without access to medically complex assessment and care, would have to be hospitalized.
"Almost Home": This innovative program helps soon-to-be-discharged residents practice the skills they will need to live independently. In a simulated home environment specially equipped with appliances and furniture, they practice the routine activities of daily living. The goal is to identify possible problems before discharge, increasing both safety and the likelihood of success.
Intermediate Care: Intermediate care is for patients whose health and quality of life would be compromised by the limitations of home care. Within our facility, patients can be transferred to higher or lower levels of care as need requires.
Greenbrier Special Care Unit: This unit is dedicated to the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. It is staffed by professionals who have been specially trained to care for those suffering from dementias. For example, we offer specialized activities that stimulate minds that may seem to be closed. Greenbrier is a secure environment of openness and freedom of movement, without sometimes-confusing hallways. And for the families of these residents, there’s a monthly Alzheimer’s Support Group.
