Choosing a health care facility is a difficult choice whether you are interested in a short rehabilitation stay after surgery or you are looking for long term care. We want our clients to make an informed decision about their healthcare and to be comfortable with their decision to trust an Encore Healthcare facility. We have assembled a list of resources to help you find the best healthcare solution for your needs. If you have any questions about the articles and tools below, please contact one of our facilities for a consultation.
Steps to Choosing Long-Term Care
Long-term care is made up of many different services and may include help with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, eating, and using the bathroom, as well as help with care most people do themselves like taking medications. Someone with a long-term physical illness, a disability, or a memory or thought problem (such as Alzheimer's disease) often needs long-term care.
Choosing long-term care is a very important decision. At Encore Healthcare, we believe the best time to talk about long-term care is before you need services. Planning ahead allows you the time to talk with your doctor and your family about the kind of long-term care services you think you might need someday, how much they would cost, and how you would pay for them. The Medicare.gov website gives you some steps that may help you choose the type of long-term care that meets your needs.
