Nursing Home Care Alternatives-1

Our goal is to rehabilitate your loved one back to an optimal level. For some residents, this allows them to go home and resume daily activities, while others may need a change in their living arrangements in order to accommodate their needs. Options that may meet your changing needs include:

Assisted Living
If you are ready to take the next step in your recovery, Assisted Living is a natural progression. Assisted Living centers (sometimes called Retirement Centers) provide care for seniors who are healthy enough to not require nursing or therapy, but are not quite sure if they are ready to transition home alone.

Assisted Living centers cater to seniors who want a more "homelike" environment but with the added security of someone to check up on you 24 hours a day. Services typically include medication management, a wide array of activities, transportation to doctor's appointments and outings, furnished rooms, healthy and balanced meals, and socialization. Assisted living residences are registered, licensed or certified at the state level, usually by the Department of Health.

Home
Prior to discharging home, make sure to think about the environment you will be returning to. How many steps do you have to climb? Do you have adaptive equipment to aid in bathing? Who will be providing you groceries and cooking? How will you get to Dr.'s appointments or the pharmacy? Can you care for yourself independently?
