Do you have a question about the care level that you need for treatment? Are you located on New Jersey Shore in New Jersey? If so, this blog post is for you. There are many levels of care available to patients with different needs. It can be challenging to know which one will work best for your situation. That’s why we’re here to help. We’ve outlined some key factors that might help determine what would be the right level of care for you below:
1. Are You Recovering from A Recent Treatment?
If the answer is yes, then transitional care would be a great solution for you. It can be hard to go back and forth from home to the hospital/clinic during your recovery. It’s even more difficult if you live out of town or out of state. Transitional care may be the perfect fit for you. Patients often need this care immediately after treatment to ensure that they are getting well enough to transition back home, back to work, or back to their daily routine.
If you have just completed treatment at a facility out of town, transitional care is also an excellent choice. As mentioned above, it can be difficult to commute to receive care. Other patients like to take a vacation immediately after treatment, which means that transitioning back home would also be difficult. That’s where transitional care comes in handy. With this type of care, you can obtain the support you need without living full time at the facility.
2. Are You Looking to Transition Back Home but Want to Maintain Your Privacy?
If you are looking to transition back home, then independent living could be the solution for you. With this type of care, patients work toward independence in one of our assisted living communities. They can do so while still having access to 24/7 nursing support and social services. Patients also work towards returning home, which makes this option ideal for those who want to transition back to living independently.
3. Are You Recovering from Surgery?
If you had a surgery recently, then sub-acute may be the best choice for your recovery. Sub-acute nursing homes are also known as rehabilitation centers. They specialize in providing care to patients needing extended recovery time, usually after an illness or surgery. Patients can work toward returning home while still receiving the physical and occupational rehabilitation that they need.
4. Are You Looking for Short-Term, Temporary Recovery?
If you need temporary recovery, then short-term rehab would be a great choice for you. Just like sub-acute care centers, short-term rehabs offer patients temporary recovery and rehabilitation services. The difference is that these types of centers offer shorter stays than sub-acute centers. This makes them ideal for those who want to obtain the support they need without committing to a long-term stay in an assisted living facility.
The hospice care can be an excellent option for your recovery. Hospice centers offer patients palliative and supportive care as they pass away. Patients can also receive support as they deal with debilitating illnesses like cancer, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), congestive heart failure, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), or even dementia.
5. Are You Recovering from Treatment for Cancer?
If the answer is yes, then transitional care may be an excellent option for your recovery. Just like hospice care centers, transitional care offers patients support during their final days. The difference is that it’s focused on helping patients live instead of allowing them to die. Patients work toward returning home, which makes this option ideal for those who don’t want their loved ones to commit to a long-term care facility while still recovering from cancer treatment.
6. Are You Recovering from Substance Abuse?
If recovering from substance abuse, then short-term rehab would be a great choice for your transition back home. Short-term rehabs offer patients temporary recovery and rehabilitation services. The difference is that these types of centers offer shorter stays than long-term facilities. This makes them ideal for those who want to obtain the support they need without committing to a long-term stay in an assisted living facility.
