Making the Skilled Nursing Center Decision
Whether you are looking for a short-term rehabilitation stay before returning home or a residential setting for a longer stay, ManorCare Utica Ridge understands the challenges faced in making this decision. When possible, don’t wait for a crisis to force your hand because it is better to make that choice when not under the added stress and strain during an emergency. It is a good idea for you or your family to schedule a tour if there is a planned surgery and to preregister for an admission. It is also a good idea for you to become familiar with a building and staff before there is a need for services. When evaluating communities, it is reassuring to know you have our expansive services across the continuum for support. ManorCare accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and has formal contracts with over 250 insurance plans.
We understand the physical and emotional challenges of recovery, and how important it is to select the right provider with the experience to meet your needs safely and confidently. Key indicators to review when choosing where to recover includes:
- Does the facility have experience treating your specific condition?
- How successfully have their previous patients with your condition recovered?
- Are the nurses knowledgeable and experienced in caring for patients similar to you?
- Does the facility have hospital-level therapists and equipment?
- Are there any systems in place to reduce unnecessary readmissions to the hospital?
- What activities and events are available to keep you engaged or help you transition back to the community?
You should look for a setting that specializes in providing vital medical care and rehabilitation in a warm and caring environment. ManorCare Utica Ridge treats all their patients like family.
