Inspire Wellness for Life is designed to improve cognitive function, reduce falls, decrease pain, and alleviate depression.

We are always looking for ways to make your life better. We know that medication misuse and errors can often cause problems in senior living spaces. That’s why we work closely with TotalCare Pharmacy.
TotalCare Pharmacy tailors their services to our unique needs, giving patients access to the medications they need with the oversight to ensure medications are properly managed.
Our goal is to facilitate comprehensive and complete healthcare for our residents. And we believe the key to truly complete healthcare is communication and collaboration among healthcare providers.
Whitefish at the Lakes connects you with onsite and visiting physicians so you can get the medical care you need without the stress of travel and traffic. By offering medical appointments on-campus, we can ensure you, your family, and your physicians are working together to keep you healthy, happy, and active.
All memory care and management staff are trained and certified in dementia care. This training allows our team to enrich the lives of residents with memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s. We do everything we can to make sure residents maintain their independence while getting the necessary care. Enriching Connections certification includes:
- Relationships & Community: Every individual is invited to belong.
- Commitment: Our team is committed to providing every resident with personalized care.
- Certification & Training: All management and memory care staff are certified in dementia care by the Alzheimer’s Association, in addition to other dementia training.
- Services: Families can make the right choices for their loved ones with the help of our nursing staff.
- Meaningful Life & Engagement: Inspire Wellness for Life is our core program philosophy that promotes the best quality of life for every resident.
- Environment: We make continuous improvements, so our community remains dementia-friendly.
- Accountability: We are always monitoring processes, plans, and culture so we can maintain our high standards of care.
Some residents require extra care, which is why we have Enhanced Care services. Through Enhanced Care, we provide all the comforts of home, plus 24/7 nurse coverage. The Enhanced Care program is for residents who need assistance with daily living, and can include:
- Advanced respiratory services: Oxygen management, nebulizers, CPAPs and BiPAPs.
- Enhanced medication management: Sliding scale insulin, coordinating lab results, overseeing medication changes and adjustments.
- Altered diets: Including pureed and mechanical soft diets.
- Mobility assistance: Using mechanical assistive devices or two-person transfers.
