  • Arranging in-house health counseling and personal therapy sessions
  • Connecting residents with spiritual support
  • Helping connect residents with dental, hearing and vision services
  • Assisting with discharge planning
  • Educating clients about community services available and options for more independent living

WestLake specializes in creating meaning for our residents.  Activities create opportunities to both give and receive care, develop relationships, or just plain have fun.  Some residents assist with activity coordination and leadership. Families also participate through volunteering, attending activities, special events, and supporting community involvement.
