Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation
LASATA CARE CENTER is the Ozaukee county owned nursing home. Lasata opened in 1966 as a 100 bed retirement home for seniors. Since then we have expanded to 136 bed Rehabilitation Facility providing acute and skilled care services to the frail senior, chronically ill, dementia related, medically unstable and rehabilitative therapy residents.
Our average daily census is 134 residents and all our beds are certified for Medicaid(T19) and Medicare(T18) services. We accept various payer sources. We contract with MJ Care Therapy and they offer a full range of therapy services. We can treat short-term, medically unstable, and residents recovering from surgery or injury as well as long-term residents coping with chronic conditions. Services include speech, occupational, and physical therapy.
67% of our rooms are private rooms and the remaining rooms are double rooms with bathrooms shared by 2 residents. We have 18 newly remodeled private rehabilitation suites that include a flat screen TV, electric lift chair, comfy bed, neutral decor, a new armoire, dresser, and nightstand. A table and chair for visitors is also provided. Every room is wired for cable TV and has an emergency call system. We have a full service beauty shop and a chapel where we hold several denominational services. We have a greenhouse for residents to grow flowers and vegetables that are planted in our wheelchair accessible gardens as a part of our expanding Horticultural Therapy program.
Our 24-hour nursing service can accommodate IV’s, tube feedings, ostomy, palliative, Alzheimer’s and dementia care. We have outside consultants that come to Lasata to treat you so you do not have to travel or leave our building. These services include dental, podiatry, audiology, optometry, psychiatric, psychological, respiratory and hospice care.
Lasata has a Resident Council that meets with the Administrator on a monthly basis to discuss common issues, to stay informed and to help make changes in facility procedures, programs and services. Our Activities department offers a full range of programs to meet everyone's interests. We offer rec room spaces for special family gatherings.
