Welcome to Northridge Care Center
Long Term Care
Northridge is located in the small community of Baker - moments away from Baton Rouge and Zachary. While we offer traditional long-term care and short-term rehabilitation, Northridge is recognized for specialized units that differentiate our facility from others in the area. Our Memory Enhancement Unit provides individualized care for residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and our Lighthouse wing allows us to provide care to men with behavioral problems in a secured environment. The Northridge staff has years of experience and receive ongoing training to provide quality care to our residents in a structured environment. Northridge is recognized by CMS, on Medicare.gov, as a 5 star rated facility, the highest rating possible, and is the #1 rated nursing facility in the greater Baton Rouge area.
Northridge’s services include 24 hour nursing care, recreational activities, therapeutic diets, and rehabilitation programs such as speech, occupational and physical therapies. We offer unique nursing services such as IV medication administration and negative pressure wound care. Short term rehabilitation programs are available for residents who need additional care before returning home after a hospital stay. In such cases, our focus is to begin discharge planning upon admission to ensure that each resident meets individual goals that will allow them to regain the independence needed to return home.
