Types of Care
Brookdale offers short-term stays for guests who want to give their normal caregivers a break, recover after surgery or other medical issues, or test the waters of senior living.
Licensed therapists work aggressively to complete each rehabilitation program, with the goal of each guest becoming as independent as possible in a timely fashion.
Long-term Skilled Care
Brookdale offers a home-like setting combines with 24-hour professional nursing services. Our caring staff is available to provide personal care for residents requiring daily living assistance.
Short-stay Transitional Care
Transitional care is a short term stay that is ideal for those who are discharged from a hospital but need further healthcare and rehabilitation services prior to going home.
We work with a network of preferred providers making it possible for residents with end-of-life needs to receive high quality, consistent hospice care while residing in our community.
Typically, the hospital social worker or case manager will arrange transportation for you and then pass along the information to you, your emergency contact and Brookdale. Please note the cost of the transportation is not covered by Medicare or insurance. The hospital social worker or case manager can give you cost information.
Typically, you will be assisted to your room and you will participate in the admission process, which includes asking you questions about your health and status. We understand that for the first day or so, everything is new for you. We encourage you to bring any questions, compliments or concerns to our attention.
Some physicians do not follow their patients in rehabilitation/skilled nursing/transitional care. If that’s the case with your doctor, we have a list of several expert physicians from which you may choose. You will be asked to follow up with your primary care physician after your discharge from Brookdale.
Your medication list comes with you from the hospital. Our admissions nurse will verify it with your physician and send it to the pharmacy. If you are on pain medications, we recommend you ask for them to be given at the hospital before you leave. We have limited supply of specific medications on hand for emergency situations.
If Medicare or insurance are paying for your stay, your medications will be covered. You may have a co-pay if you are paying privately for your stay and have a prescription drug plan. If you are paying privately and have no prescription drug plan, you will be responsible for paying for your medications.
We offer therapy services seven days a week. In most cases, you will be seen by a therapist upon the day of admission. After your evaluation is completed, the therapy team will begin your individualized plan of care. This plan determines the frequency and duration of your therapy.
You will be up and dressed each day, so bring clothes that you are comfortable wearing and that are easy to get on and off. We recommend sweat pants and sweatshirts or shorts and t-shirts for therapy appointments, and please bring rubber-soled shoes. Also, be sure to include important daily items such as undergarments, pajamas, socks, a robe and slippers. You might also wish to bring a light sweater or jacket, as well as preferred toiletry articles.
You and your family member are invited to discuss your progress and upcoming plans for your discharge through care conferences that are held periodically throughout your stay.
With your permission, a Brookdale representative may contact you after your discharge. Our goal is to ensure you are safe and comfortable at home. Brookdale offers many home health and private duty nursing services that can further assist you.
