Caring for short-term injury or illness

Lakewood accepts clients into our skilled nursing facilities for rehabilitation from injury or illness.  

Based on approval from the Virginia State Health Commissioner, Lakewood offers short-term rehabilitative care and other nursing services, expanding its tradition of providing exceptional health care in a faith-based, family environment to the Greater Richmond community.

Lakewood offers a number of services and amenities that make the community appealing to people recovering from accidents or illness. Nestled on 128 acres in Richmond’s West End, the quiet community boasts a low CNA and nurse turnover rate, promoting continuity of care and demonstrating the staff’s commitment to rehabilitative success.

Direct admit clients work with experienced therapists who will help them reach their rehabilitation goals quickly. A fully-equipped therapy gym with ADL kitchen helps clients best simulate the tasks they will need to do when they return home.

Like Lakewood residents, direct admit clients also enjoy meals prepared by a trained chef and offered in restaurant-style dining rooms. They may order directly from the menu and have access to the services of a registered dietitian. At the end of a stay in Lakewood’s skilled nursing facility, direct admit clients may transition to Assisted Living or Independent Living levels of care if they are functionally and financially approved.

Lakewood has earned a five-star rating through Nursing Home Compare. Calculated by, Nursing Home Compare contains quality of care and staffing information for the more than 15,000 Medicare- and Medicaid-participating nursing homes across the U.S. The system rates each nursing home on health inspections, staffing and quality measures, then combines those three ratings to calculate an overall rating, with one being lowest and five highest.
