What Services do Long-Term Care Facilities Offer?

Long-term care facilities provide a variety of services such as rehabilitation therapy, nursing home care, skilled nursing care, assisted living, psychiatric treatment, behavioral health, hospice care, and more.
The number of older Americans continues to rise. In 2016, nearly 9 million older adults moved into long-term care facilities. This trend is expected to continue through 2040, when 14.5% of the population will be over 65 years old. As baby boomers age, they will require assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental ADL (IADL).
By providing quality care, Fall River Jewish Home enables seniors to remain independent longer. According to a study conducted by the American Health Care Association, long-term care facilities are associated with higher patient satisfaction scores compared to other types of healthcare settings, and patients who stay in these facilities tend to live longer lives.

Transitioning from Surgery and the Hospital

After surgery or some other medical procedure, your body may need time to recover before you leave the hospital. You may also need additional support after leaving the hospital.
Rehabilitation centers offer physical and occupational therapies that help restore strength and mobility. They also provide socialization opportunities for residents so they can maintain their sense of community.
If you have questions about how long-term care centers work, ask your doctor, nurse, or therapist. Your physician or surgeon should give you information on what to expect after discharge. Fall River Jewish Home is highly recommended as we network with physicians in our area to accommodate their patients daily.

Planning for Long-Term Care

It’s impossible to predict whether you will need long-term care. Maybe you won’t ever need it. However, an unanticipated event, illness, or injury may cause your current situation to change, sometimes unexpectedly. It’s better to plan for long-term care now than when you’re sick.
If you plan ahead for the potential need for long-term care, you’ll be able to get familiar with local services and costs before you actually need them. It lets you make major life choices while you’re still capable so that you don’t regret anything later.
People who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia should start thinking about their future well before they or their families are faced with difficult decisions down the road.
