ALL visits must be scheduled ahead to ensure we have openings and space available.

October 21, 2020: Effective immediately, Lakewood Care Center, Lakewood Pines and Lakewood Manor are suspending indoor visitation per guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).
