Southlake Village Rehabilitation and Care Center Celebrates Two Years of Caring for the Lincoln Community

Lincoln, NE – Southlake Village Rehabilitation and Care Center celebrates its two year anniversary on Friday, July 12, 2013.

Southlake Village Rehabilitation and Care Center opened its doors in 2011 with the mission to provide the citizens of Lincoln and the surrounding communities with a state-of-the-art facility where they could rehabilitate or live while receiving world class care and service. Southlake Village achieves this through its multidisciplinary approach using nursing, life enrichment, dining, social services and spiritual care to care for the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

On June 3, 2013, the Southlake Village team welcomed their 1,000th patient and to date have had the pleasure of serving 1,085 individuals. The memories and experiences as we touch the lives of those we serve are amazing. Jennifer Wolf-Wubbels, Public Relations Coordinator recalls the joy on Fred’s face as two very well-known Husker players walked through the door of his room giving him a firm hand shake and the opportunity to talk Husker football. Melissa James, OT states that she is most proud when she is able to help patients like Clarinda recover from a stroke. Clarinda who “arrived at Southlake Village unable to walk needing two people to assist her, is now able to take steps with very minimal assistance and is well on her way to being independent.” “Hugging our rehab patients as they walk out the door of Southlake Village to return to their homes more independent and healthy makes my heart happy”, declares Guest Relation Staff Member, Angie Kreikemeier. Sandra Robertson, LPN states she is so proud when she is able to care for an individual who has chronic medical problems such as a ”long term diabetic ulcer that has given the patient problems for years and while they are at Southlake we are able to heal the ulcer and help the individual return home ”. Gayle Resh, MA, CTRS and Life Enrichment Coordinator comments, “It’s not about just finding activities to keep people busy – it’s providing quality recreation opportunities so those receiving care experience cognitive, social and emotional well-being. Past patients come back to visit and take part in social and musical events – that indicates the quality of our programming.” The care and services that the Southlake Village staff provides is truly world class.

On July 9th Southlake Village hosted their July Jubilee celebrating the Second Anniversary of the facility with a Barbeque dinner, dunk tank, snow cones and cotton candy. The Southlake Village family will celebrate again on Friday, July 12th with a cake reception for residents, patients, staff and their families.
