Frequently Asked Questions
How will I know when it is time for me to look into the services of a Health Care Center?
When the family can no longer handle the care and needs of the loved one or if 24/7 nursing care is identified.
How will I know which facility is best for my loved one?
You and your loved one should look at several facilities before making a selection. Make sure you ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable.
Is there an option to stay in the hospital versus a Health Care Center?
Hospitals are designed for patients who have medical issues that can be treated only in a hospital. Insurance companies could also stop insurance benefits when you no longer need hospital care. A nursing center can provide the continuing medical care and rehabilitation services you need while you recover from illness or injury so that you can return home as soon as possible.
