Source: Whether you are in search of an assisted living facility, nursing home, rehab center, or memory care unit, there are few facilities that offer these services under one roof. Located in central Wisconsin, there is one that can provide for all your needs with a staff capable of helping you navigate the twist and turns of an already complicated health care system. Here, we consider one facility aimed at providing service for your loved one with tender loving care and dignity, putting pride back into senior health care.
We are all given advice to plan for our senior years, however, most people put it off, saying they are still young, and there is plenty of time to save for retirement. Then when the time comes to deal with the realities of our senior years, including health care needs, many of us continue to be unprepared. Maybe you lead a healthy lifestyle and were fortunate enough to enjoy your golden years in perfect health. Maybe you lived well under your means, and could sell your family home and move in with family or friends after your spouse had passed, leaving you resources to draw from when the day comes and additional senior care services are needed. Or maybe, you had great benefits from your professional career that will carry over into your retirement. Not everyone is so fortunate.
Today’s health care system programs such as Medicare and Medicaid are littered with tons of paperwork that a person must complete even before receiving a stich of care. Applying for social security and social security benefits is just as much of a hassle. Without guidance of a health care administrator, the process of applying for care so one can be admitted to a senior health care facility can seem overwhelming and take a long time.
A person in their golden years, that has little or no family to help them stay mobile within their community, or their own home, faces a larger uphill battle in applying for the care they need. Many of the senior benefits and health care option applications are handled online. It creates anxiety for a senior that must deal with petitioning for benefits they paid into during their working career, when they may be unfamiliar on how to use the internet or a computer. This may seem like a silly situation given our modern world, however, there are many elder folks that have lived life without the internet, and only now are having to use the computer.
Most assisted living, nursing home, rehabilitation centers, and memory care units have qualified trained health care administrators to help assist potential and current residents/patients navigate the health care system maze. They focus their attention on individuals, family, and community health, wellness, and quality of life within these facilities. Part of their responsibilities is to help incoming patients receive the advantage of the monetary benefits that may be available so the patients care services are covered. Most senior care facilities have administrators that understand the Medicare and Medicaid systems and programs, in detail, removing some of the stress a patient may have about how to pay for their health care services.
Health care administrators also provide feedback and suggestions to other industry leaders and government boards, providing a balance between establishing quality care and finding ways to pay for senior health care, as well as ensuring these issues are not lost in a sea of public policy debates.
Quality senior health care requires well trained professionals that have a passion for providing the best care their facilities have to offer, so patients can continue to either maintain or increase their quality of life with less worry.
Changing the way patients are cared for while creating new standards in senior health care quality of life is a modeled destination designed to uplift individuals seeking elder care, making them feel they are at home, regardless of their condition. Staffed with qualified, motivated individuals who look for opportunities to serve those seeking assisted living, nursing home, rehabilitation, or memory care in their golden years is a vital component individuals must consider when choosing a facility.
