For almost 150 years, St. Aemilian-Lakeside has focused on the care and treatment
needs of children and families in the community. The non-profit, non-sectarian
agency works collaboratively with its clients and many other organizations
to meet these needs. Equally important to fulfilling the agency's mission,
members of the community support St. Aemilian-Lakeside as volunteers, donors
and caring friends.
Most of the children discharged from St. Aemilian-Lakeside will return to
their families. Therefore parent involvement is important throughout treatment.
Families participate with their children in therapy, on the unit and in the
classroom. Social and recreational activities for families are regularly
scheduled. Parent training and support groups provide families with additional
tools for success.
