Lakeview at Mill Pond is dedicated to assisting individuals to attain their highest level of independence through provision of the structure and support necessary for participants to be their most successful in a community setting. Services are designed to maximize the individual’s independent functioning in self-care, physical condition, emotional growth, socialization, communication, recreation and vocational skills.
Lakeview at Mill Pond’s community residences provide a choice to adults with acquired brain injury and related conditions. Lakeview’s Community Residences offer small town living near a major university hub, with ample opportunity for individuals to achieve their full potential and enjoy a rich and fulfilling life. Lakeview ensures that each participant has a person-centered plan of care that is comprehensive and individualized. The plan is developed in collaboration with the participant, his or her identified support network and the area agency that works with the individual.
Participants who live at Mill Pond are provided with the structure and support needed to manage their medical and behavioral health needs. The Program Manager coordinates the care activity in these areas. Medical, allied health therapies and behavioral health services are accessed in the community. Daily therapeutic routines support care plans from physicians, clinicians and counselors. A local pharmacy delivers medication prescriptions.
Each individual’s person-centered plan of care will typically include: case management; community integration; individual and group therapeutic activities; access to community programming; medication management; 24-hour daily supervision; and an as needed neuropsychological consultation. Participants are supported with a healthy lifestyle through preventative care – diet, exercise and a wellness focus. Program participants reside in a private room in a comfortable residence. Transportation is provided as needed into the community for all activities.
Lakeview program participants are encouraged to be self-reliant and as independent as possible, while recognizing the benefits of interdependence through participation in community groups and social relationships. Community Integration Specialists and the Program Manager work with the resident to help prioritize goals and access leisure pursuits in the community designed to enhance his or her overall quality of life.
Returning to school or work after a brain injury is a challenge. Lakeview works with individuals to pursue return to school, work, and productive use of time in their residence and community. Opportunities to explore educational and vocational options, volunteer in community business and service environments, and transition to supported employment with job coaching are integrated into each individual’s person-centered service plan.
Lakeview Community Residences are certified by the Wisconsin State Department of Health and Family Services.
