Our Community Focus

Located in the quaint, historic town of Benton, KY just a few miles from Kentucky Lake in Western Kentucky— Lake Way Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has served the community for over 25 years. Our quiet, nurturing home-like environment is staffed with a kind and caring team that treats every resident like family. We believe in personal connections and knowing everyone on a first name basis. We believe each resident is unique, bringing their own life experience, likes/dislikes, and personalized needs. Our resident patio area and outdoor spaces are surrounded by lush flower gardens throughout the property. This meaningful and direct connection to nature is a labor of love for our residents, employees, and community volunteers. Something is always in bloom at Lake Way.

Residents and their families and loved ones have peace of mind knowing that we are available to help with all daily tasks such as personal hygiene, medication needs, cooking, cleaning, and transportation as well as a large array of skilled nursing and medical support services.

State of the Art Safety

Safety is a Top Priority

We have multiple prevention methods for the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. These include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma has been shown to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores, and recent studies have demonstrated a significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.

Partnering With Industry Experts

We developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to help prevent the spread of disease. We partnered with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while following state and CDC guidance.

Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:


Screening anyone who enters the facility – including our teammates prior to starting their shifts – at the door, including temperature checks


Residents are monitored and screened regularly


Teammates and guests are wearing masks throughout their shifts/visits


Daily Activities

When residents have an engaging social life, they’re able to live more comfortably and productively. Activities give structure which provides them certainty in knowing what’s coming up next; time goes by faster and increases a sense of purpose. There’s also something comforting about having people around who care enough to make your days a little more interesting.
