When Long-Term Care is the Best Option
When is the right time? That decision can be a hard one for not only you, but your loved one. It’s important to remember that the right skilled nursing facility can be an enriching and rewarding environment for your loved one and for you as their caregiver. Health and safety concerns are the main reason why someone may need to be admitted into long-term care:
A chronic illness that can’t be managed at home, leading to repeated hospitalizations
Frequent falls can have significant effects on a person or caregiver and quality of life
Impaired cognitive function, increased confusion, or memory issues

Every family is invited to meet regularly with our team of highly trained professionals to review and participate in the resident’s treatment and plan of care.

Members of this team are specialty trained and dedicated to the care of the long term population.
