Considering a move to a retirement community? Make sure they have a skilled nursing facility on-hand.
We talk quite a bit about the luxurious apartments and cottages, the beauty of the natural wildlife surrounding our campus, and of course the wonderful hotel-like services and amenities. Plus the delicious food, indoor pool and gym, friendly staff and more.
All of those items are very important when choosing a retirement community. You want to make sure you’re in a place that fits your personality, needs and wants. You’re moving because you want a wonderful lifestyle.
But you’re also making this move to secure your future, and should you have a fall or other medical occurrence, chances are you will need to spend some time in rehabilitation before returning to your apartment or cottage. This is the case for people of all ages, and of course becomes increasingly important as we age.
So make sure to ask the question “Does this community have a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center on-site?” If not, you may need to move again should you need skilled nursing or rehabilitative care.
Should you find yourself in the hospital, you need to make a decision as to where you will get your care. Typically you choose from a list of area facilities without the benefit of exploring the facility in-person or doing the proper research to ensure they provide the great care you need.
At Crane’s Mill, we have a 24-hour skilled nursing and rehab department in our health center. If a Crane’s Mill resident is in a position to need this high level of care, the choice has been made in advance as to where they will spend their time in rehabilitation. They likely even know the staff, residents and neighbors. And they certainly know they will receive the top-notch care that Crane’s Mill provides.
