Skilled Long-term Care Overview

Here we have an overview of Skilled Long-term Care. Speak with your Care Advocate regarding your specific needs.

Commonly referred to as a skilled nursing facility, rehab facility, or just nursing home. These facilities used to be one of the few options for those needing long-term care. Decades ago there simply were not the thousands of Assisted Living facilities there are today and a loved one needing more care would go to the “nursing home”.

Today, these facilities primary focus on providing post-acute (post-hospitalization) care to individuals who need care for a few weeks to a month after a hospitalization. Services could range from speech and occupational therapies to wound care and much more. Most people in a skilled nursing facility will only receive services for two weeks to a month. However, may of these facilities will set aside 10% to 25% of their beds for long-term care.

While one of the most expensive care options, running from a low of $5,000/month to a high of $15,000+/month, the facilities can be a great option for some clients.

The best fit is for clients that need care at a very high level. An example of this high level of care would be ventilator patients or someone needing frequent Intravenous treatments.

While almost any level of long-term care can be provided outside of a skilled nursing facility, many feel more comfortable with the skilled nursing environment knowing that doctors and nurses are available 24/7.

If you need help determining if skilled long-term care is the best option available contact your Care Advocate.

I could not be happier with the services provided by CareWise. Genevieve was incredibly professional and kind during the process of finding a home that could give the attention necessary for my brothers needs. Just having someone who would LISTEN to our needs took so much pressure off.

PATRICIA STEVENS

Patrick and Genevieve have worked tirelessly and with great expertise to help me find and vet the right facility for my mother. They have a broad and deep knowledge of the facilities in the greater Scottsdale area and have helped me with hundreds of details and important information about each of the choices I reviewed.

KRISTEN WALSTEDT

My elderly brother needed a new living arrangement after he convalesced following a hospital stay. My nephew connected with Patrick and Genevieve through the hospital and we could not have found the perfect place for my brother without them. There are so many options in the Phoenix area that none of us had the time to figure out what place would be best for him. The experience was great and they are both very caring and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them if a family was in need of finding the perfect place for a family member.
