What Are My Options for Care?

January 2024

Our team wants you to feel confident choosing our center for yourself or your loved one’s care. Understanding the terminology used in the long-term care industry is an important first step in determining viable care options and discussing them with your primary care physician and/or social worker.

Nursing Centers like ours are Skilled Nursing Facilities, one of the most common and familiar options for personal care. While many terms like Skilled Nursing Facility, nursing home and convalescent home are used interchangeably, there are distinctive characteristics that are important for potential residents, family members and caregivers considering nursing home care to understand.

The term “Skilled Nursing” often confuses what services this brings. Skilled Nursing is high-level medical care that is provided by trained individuals such as registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Our center proudly staffs each of these nursing care professionals in addition to working with local providers and specialists to ensure you or your loved one has the medical attention they may need during their stay.

Skilled Nursing Services may be for short-term rehabilitation (less than 100 days) from an injury or illness or long-term for patients with chronic medical conditions requiring frequent care. For those short-term rehabilitation patients, our therapeutic methods confront both the mental and physical aspects of rehabilitation with the belief that recovery comes from both the mind and body.

In addition to medical services, nursing homes also offer healthy and individualized food plans along with socialization and a daily activities schedule. Visit our Events Calendar to see on-site and off-site activities planned for the month by our Activities Director.

Respite Care, or temporary care, can provide “time off” for family members, friends or others trusted with caring for your loved one at home. Under a respite care program, your loved one can come to our center briefly while the usual caregivers rest and recharge.
