Which type of long term care facility is best for your loved one?

There are a variety of long term care facilities for you to choose from. Depending on the level of care your loved one needs and your financial means, you could move your loved one into:

  • A hospital-based skilled nursing facility, which is best for those recovering from illnesses, injuries or surgery.
  • A skilled nursing facility, which offers a high level of medical and personal care. If your loved one needs to be closely monitored, this is a great option.
  • An intermediate care facility, which is best for those with chronic ailments. These facilities are meant for elderly individuals who need longer or permanent stays.
  • A custodial care facility, which mostly offers personal assistance along with low level nursing services. Your loved one will also get to participate in recreational and social activities.
