Long-term care is needed when 24-hour skilled nursing attention is required to enable you or your loved one to live life happily, safely, inspired and fulfilled.
First, determine your needs. Most Health Services and Long-term Skilled Nursing communities offer both long-term health care and short-term rehab/therapy services. If the need is for long-term care, you’ll want to be sure the surroundings are comfortable. The team members, food and recreation opportunities should all be high-quality. If the need is for rehab, ask about the success rates in dealing with this particular diagnosis. Tour the building and the rehab area, using all your senses to make an assessment: Does it smell clean? Are the rooms and work areas cluttered? How appetizing is the food? In what ways do the team members interact with residents? Do the other residents seem content? What kind of activities are on the monthly calendar? Can you review a sample menu? These details will help you make a decision.
