Residents & Family Members
We value providing our residents and patients with a quality living experience as a member of our health care family. We know that high-performing teams communicate well together, enjoy their work, help one another when needed and are engage while delivering personalized, quality care to our residents.
At Woodlyn Heights Senior Living, we are committed to ensuring our patients are engaged and prepared to succeed when they leave our community. We have integrated a state-of-the art solution called Engage that allows our staff to easily track the progress of each patient, provides management intelligence to our team, and ensures each patient has the tools, resources, and support necessary to self-manage at home.
While providing the highest quality of clinical care is always forefront, we recognize that the ability to self-manage after discharge is dependent upon several key factors:
Closing expectation gaps to the greatest extent possible sets the stage for successful transitions.
Our experienced team has been committed to quality improvement through innovation and alignment with our core mission. Listening and responding to the needs of our tenants and families is imperative to maintaining our commitment to quality care.

In response to this need we’ve come together with pharmacy experts utilizing an affiliate organization to meet our needs. PCA Pharmacy will provide extensive benefits, with pharmacy services tailored to our processes, allowing Accura HealthCare’s managed and owned properties to provide you the best care possible.

Lake Andes Senior Living provides care for individuals when staying at home is no longer possible. We provide a person centered environment to meet the needs of those who choose to call Sterling Park home. In addition to rehabilitation services, we take the worry and stress out of daily living with the following benefits. We know that each person is unique, and we want to help meet the individual goals and needs of our residents.
Q. What factors should be considered when choosing a skilled nursing and rehabilitation community?
A. It is important to select a community and team of care providers that can offer the appropriate care that you or your loved one requires. Not all communities offer the same medical services. If your care plan will call for wound care treatment or physical therapy, as examples, you will want to select a community that offers access to these programs, on-site. It is important that you also select a community that feels like the right fit for you or your loved one. Take some time to visit the communities you are considering. Take a tour and meet with the staff. Choose the one that can best accommodate your medical needs, but also feels comfortable and can serve as a true home away from home.
Q. What is a plan of care?
A. A plan of care identifies the specific steps that will be taken to treat and care for a patient. Plans are individualized and based treatment that will achieve the best possible outcomes for you or your loved one. Physicians and other members of your clinical care team will work collaboratively to develop a plan of care, with input from you and your family members.
Q. What is the average length of stay for short-term rehabilitation patients?
A. Every patient is unique and so is their length of stay. Your physician will give the best recommendations to get you or your loved one back on their feet as quickly as possible.
Q. Are utilities, phone, internet, and cable included?
A. Yes, most are included. Our Transitional Care guests receive all utilities, cable, internet, and phone as a part of their daily rate. For our Long Term Care residents, all utilities, cable, and internet are included; phone services are available for an optional fee.
Q. Is Medical Assistance available if there is not enough insurance coverage to pay for a stay?
A. If you are qualified through the State of Minnesota, yes. If you are unsure whether or not you qualify, contact your insurance carrier or ask us to help you determine your eligibility.
Q. Are community tours offered?
A. Yes! We feel that tours are the best way for you and your family to learn about who we are, what we do, and how we do it. Visiting with us will give you a great opportunity to see our community, meet our staff, and learn what life will be like if you choose us for your short-stay or long-term care needs.
Q. Can an existing family doctor be the attending physician during a stay?
A. Yes, but we would need verification that the physician agrees to follow you while you stay in our community.
