Lakewood’s home care program makes it possible for people to maintain independent living in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes. We provide assistance for people who do not require 24-hour-a-day professional supervision in a hospital or care center setting.
Services vary depending on the individual needs of each person. Individuals may use home care due to an illness, after a hospitalization, or when they simply need extra help with things like medication, nutrition or physical therapy. Our highly-trained staff care about your medical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our goal is to help you and your family be healthy, safe, and happy.

Our home telemonitors are primarily used for patients with heart disease, breathing problems, and high blood pressure. This system reminds patients to take their vitals (blood pressure, oxygen, pulse, weight, etc.), which are electronically transmitted back to our office where a nurse reviews them. By checking these daily, the nurse is able to identify trends and notify the doctor to make changes for the patient before an emergency arises. This system also lets patients be more involved with their own personal care.
Research shows this new technology – used in combination with periodic nurse visits – can decrease the need for trips to the emergency room, the need to stay in the hospital, and the length of hospital stays.
