Welcome to Northgate Care Center

Northgate Care Center located in Waukon, IA, is a skilled nursing facility certified in both Medicare and Medicaid. Northgate's experienced staff provides a consistent level of quality care and has embraced the philosophy of Person Directed Care. The Person Directed Care philosophy is used to enrich the lives of the people who live and work at Northgate by offering more choices to the staff and residents. The choices include day-to-day living decisions, such as when they get up, what they eat, how and when they bathe, and what activities they attend.

Consistent staffing, another aspect of Person Directed Care at Northgate, ensures residents are cared for by the same caregiver at least 85% of the time. This continuity of care ensures that residents feel safe and more secure during their stay at Northgate. In fact, Northgate's nursing department has over 160 years of service!

Northgate's administrator, along with several other employees, hold quarterly CQI Advisory meetings to provide the residents the opportunity to express their feelings about living at Northgate. During these meetings, all departments are reviewed to ensure that the residents are being treated with dignity and respect. Residents are encouraged to share any new ideas they have to further enhance their living environment.

Northgate Care Center serves two assisted living facilities. The staff from Northgate Care Center provides services for Southcrest Manor II in Waukon and Oneota Village in Decorah. In addition Northgate can assist individuals in staying home longer with the ABCM Healthy Living Home Care program. Ask our staff how we can assist you with our many services.
