Medical Care Services
Monthly Drug Review Committee: Every month, our facility medical directors, the pharmacists, the directors of nursing and dietary services get together to discuss our resident's medical status and wellbeing. This committee ensures that your loved ones are receiving the appropriate treatments they need and that they are not receiving medicines or treatments they don't need.

Alzheimer's/Dementia Unit: Our facilities are designed with specialized care units to meet the needs of patients who require more attention and care. At Lancia's, these patients are not simply disregarded because they have lost some or all of their capacity for rational thought.
