History of Lakeland Health Care Center

Walworth Country has historically provided care for all individuals who are not able to care for themselves. The County Poor Farm opened in 1852 and housed the homeless, poor and those deemed to be chronically insane. Farm products raised on the farm were distributed by the Board to needy people throughout the county.

Over the years the programs adjusted to the needs of the population. In 1938, the country general hospital was built and the poor farm became the Walworth County Home for the Aged.

Lakeland Nursing Home was built in 1962 and became a skilled nursing facility in 1974. In 2004, the Walworh County Board of Supervisors approved the construction of the 120 bed facility, built to provide resident directed care in a homelike environment.

We moved into this beautiful facility on July 19, 2006
