Sometimes after an acute phase of an illness, patients need additional care. There are times when instead of going home, patients need to be transferred to a Long Term Care or Rehab Unit AKA- SNF). So how do you know which one is best for you or your loved one?
Lake County Indiana has 20 such facilities to choose from. Of course at the time you need one, there may not be a bed available in the one you want. It’s best though to know at least where to look for information on facilities.
The Indiana State Department of Health keeps records on all state licensed and Medicare certified facilities. You can view the Consumer Reports on each one below.

So, who are the top three nursing homes in Lake County? (insert drum roll!)
Top 3 Nursing Home(SNF) Picks with Rationale:
- Lowell Health Care– scored highest in county on state report card. Only 1 complaint reported in 4 years.
- St. Anthony Home– scored 2nd highest in county on state report card. Only 3 complaints reported in 4 years. Latest survey was deficiency free
- Wittenberg– scored 3rd highest in county on state report card. Locally owned. Only 2 reported complaints in 4 years.
I will give an honorable mention to Nursing Care at Hartsfield Village. They are 1 out of 3 that are locally owned. They have a 170 report card (702 is the lowest in the state and guess what…we are the proud county that is home to that horrible place!) Although they already have 3 reported complaints this year, last year they only had 1.
