Skilled nursing vs. assisted living
The biggest difference between skilled nursing and assisted living is the amount of individualized care. People who live in assisted living merely require assistance with a few activities, such as administering medication(s), providing meals, doing household chores, etc. In comparison, those who need skilled nursing services require 24-hour supervision from medically trained staff and medically specific care.
Long-term care vs. short-term rehabilitation
Long-term care is when a person requires access to skilled nursing, assisted living, and/or around-the-clock care for the foreseeable future. Short-term rehabilitation is offered for this same type of care, but for a short time while a person recovers from an injury or medical procedure. For example, if an elderly person recently became injured, had surgery, or had a stroke, they will require temporary help and, likely, physical therapy services to heal and regain their strength.
How long does rehabilitation take?
At a Haven Health facility, the average short-term rehabilitation time is between 7 and 30 days before being released back home.
What type of care do I need?
The Haven Health skilled nursing facility staff will discuss all your options with you to make the most suitable individualized plan for the best quality of care for you or your loved one. During your stay, there will be weekly check-ins with you to reevaluate your progress and to openly discuss your goals for your stay.
Who decides when a patient gets discharged?
At Haven Health the length of the patient’s stay is an open discussion between the patient, the nursing team, and/or the therapy team. At a Haven Health facility, typically, the recommendation is made based on the patient’s individual goals for their physical and mental well-being.
What to expect
When staying at a Haven Health facility, you can expect top-quality extensive care beyond rehabilitation. Haven Health is dedicated to overall health and wellness. To achieve this, you will see a staff member and/or an attending physician soon after you arrive and then two to three times a week after that.
You can expect to work with a professional with your rehabilitation plan two to three times a week for rehabilitation services.
What to bring
Most of a Haven Health resident’s needs will be handled by staff. However, there are a few things you need to bring. This list includes:
- The patient’s state-issued ID
- All medical insurance cards (both sides)
- Power of attorney information (financial and medical)
