Life Care Center of Sandpoint
At Life Care Center of Sandpoint, our residents are our highest priority. We recognize that every resident has unique needs, goals and abilities. We offer 24-hour skilled nursing care in order to preserve dignity and self-respect in a loving and caring environment.
The professional support team develops an individualized care plan for each resident by working closely with the resident and his or her family. That plan is regularly re-evaluated and adjusted to meet ever-changing needs. Family Care Conferences are scheduled and families are fully informed.
We specialize in subacute services for patients who need advanced medical services. These services may include medical management, rehabilitation, infusion therapy, and VitalStim® therapy.
Rehabilitation - In patient - Out patient
Rehabilitation is often a critical component of a resident's care plan. A skilled nursing team of physical, occupational and speech therapists evaluates the rehabilitation needs of each resident and designs an outcome-oriented treatment program. Therapy may be scheduled multiple times throughout the day, seven days a week. Many residents receive on going therapy enabling them to maintain daily living skills. Others are merely here short term following surgery and receive restorative care and return home.
Respite, or short-term care, is provided for individuals who need assistance while their primary caregiver is on vacation or temporarily unable to provide home care. Respite participants receive the same quality nursing care and supervision as our full-time residents.
All residents are encourage to participate in a wide range of activities planned by a professional activity director. A monthly calendar keeps residents and guests informed of events such as parties, movies, exercise classes, musical programs, arts and crafts, and religious services. The activity department also schedules excursions to allow residents to stay in touch with their community. Residents ride safely and comfortably in a wheelchair-accessible van.
To promote socialization, residents are encouraged to eat in the facility dining room. Meals are prepared to support individual dietary needs and catered to according to the physician's plan of care. Residents may also enjoy special services and amenities, including a library, ice cream parlor, an on-site beauty salon, and a beuatifully manicured courtyard.
