Life Enrichment Activities
Lenox Care Center has been serving families from Lenox, Iowa and Taylor County since 1962. We also take care of our neighbors from Creston and Corning and beyond. Our nursing home team works every day to create a healing environment and uplifting atmosphere so residents can focus on achieving their highest level of health. You'll find a special combination of hometown compassion with clinical knowledge and skills.
"The staff is very nice."
We're here with the services you need when you need them. Our team accepts admissions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are the only skilled facility in Lenox providing 24 hour nursing care.
If you've had a hospital stay as a result of an illness or injury and need short-term rehabilitation, why not transition to your home right in your home community? Therapies are available 7 days a week to help patients heal, gain strength and discharge home. Find out more about Medicare benefits in the Official Medicare Handbook (pdf).
For those you may know who are no longer able to care for themselves at home let us help them create a home at Lenox Care Center with long-term care. Restorative services, offered by our LPN 5 days a week, are designed to help residents regain independence and stay engaged in life at Lenox Care Center.
There are more than 450,000 family and friend caregivers in Iowa, many in our local communities. Our respite service is designed for those who need assistance while their primary caregiver gets much needed rest, takes time off or may be unable to provide care for a short period of time.
When a patient no longer benefits from curative treatment we work closely with community hospice specialists to provide compassionate care so the individual can live as fully and comfortably as possible at end of life. We're pleased to be able to provide a dedicated hospice suite.
It's not just our services but how we provide those services, that is the Lenox Care Center difference. Our clinical staff adds "caring" to their knowledge and expertise to offer the following specialties:
- 24-hour skilled nursing care
- Post-operative care
- Pain management
- Medication administration
- Wound care management
- Dressing changes
- IV therapy
- Tube feeding
- Tracheostomy and other respiratory care services
- Respite care
- Hospice care
We believe an important part of successful therapy is the positive relationship between therapist and patient. Our therapists challenge, encourage, motivate and support patients as they set and work toward their goals. Our short-stay program is designed to help patients heal, gain strength and transition home.
- Physical therapists help patients reach their highest level of independent mobility and learn how to prevent injury.
- Occupational Therapists work with patients to improve their command of activities of daily living.
- Speech & Language Pathology specialists assist patients in achieving improved quality of life through assessment of language, swallowing and/or cognitive disorders.
