    If you are looking for a place for your loved one look no further. The staff is kind and considerate. Easy one level facility with nice rooms and lots of activities. My mother is treated with respect and dignity. Always someone to help her when she is in need. The therapy dept keeps her active and motivated and she just loves the bible study and singing of hymns. Highly recommend this facility for rehabilitation or long term care.

    Life Care Center of Michigan City is the best facility in the region, in terms of quality caring staff and excellent rehab to home outcomes. The facility offers a cozy homelike environment. Residents, visitors and vendors are treated like a part of the family at the Michigan City Life Care Center. No one ever feels like an outsider at this facility. Residents take an active role in their quality of care with their selection of personalized goals. Social dining is offered in multiple locations as well as room service (if that is the preference). Home-style meals are always offered with alternate selections for personal tastes. The residents select their own activities; have a voice in terms of which special events occur at the facility, as well as which community outings they chose to participate in. The active population leads a full and dynamic life that mixes the assurance of Life Care's medical expertise, social life options, and rehab outcomes. Come see the Michigan City Life Care Center for yourself.

    Our activity directors are fabulous. they go out of their way to keep us busy, great outings. The kitchen makes special foods for people who can't have certain things. I can't have onions, so they always make sure take enough out for me before adding the onions

    Life care feels like home. I had my grandmother there for end of life care and it was a wonderful experience. The Nurses and CNAs kept her clean, comfortable, and treated her with dignity and respect. I am grateful for this facility. There is no place like home and its defiantly not the cutest facility but extremely clean and caring compassionate people working there.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
