Setting the Standards
At The Lodge, our goal is to create an enriching experience — your goals are our commitment.
Recognizing the high demand for a community where one could go for a short stay to receive rehabilitation services and coupling that with an expertise in all disciplines of therapy, our professional management company made their vision a reality. The Lodge opened its doors in Spring 2019 as a brand-new rehab-to-home community located adjacent to Lake Charles Care Center, a long-term care community.
Since Lake Charles Care Center opened its doors in 1974, our team has been committed to continuous innovation and raising the standards of excellence in healthcare. From friendly surroundings to personalized 24-hour service, our community offers all the comforts of home while embracing values of dignity, understanding and respect. At our home, we believe in the value of family, and from the moment you walk in, you feel the difference.
Lake Charles Care Center is Medicare and Medicaid certified and a member of the Louisiana Nursing Home Association, American Healthcare Association and Lake Charles Chamber of Commerce, providing an exceptional level of service by exceeding the expectations of employees, residents, families and friends.
We not only provide comprehensive, therapeutic care to residents, but we are also committed to preparing residents to return home quickly in a safe, friendly environment. Working as a team of compassionate professionals, our staff formulates resident care plans, ensuring that each resident receives medical attention specific to physician orders while maximizing well-being. We maintain open communications between our staff and residents’ family members to ensure that all needs are met.
Private suites offer uplifting spaces where every detail has been considered so you can enjoy the comforts of a home away from home with an experienced team who welcomes you and provides the therapeutic service prescribed while you’re away.
