Care Plans & Services
A: At Woodcrest, we assist prospective residents and their families as they navigate through several different transitions of care. We use a person-centered team approach to assist prospective residents and their families with different transitions; transitions from home to Assisted Living or Long-term care, transitions from the hospital to Woodcrest for a skilled rehab stay.
A: Adams Woodcrest offers assisted living, independent living, nursing care, short-term rehabilitation and memory care. Assisted living allows for the ability to live your life as you have known it with the added support of an experienced and attentive staff. Independent living offers carefree living where residents can do what they love such as gardening, crafts, sports and traveling. Nursing care is designed for residents needing long-term care, and short-term rehabilitation is offered for individuals who need rehabilitation or who suffer from serious health issues too complicated to be tended to at home. The Memory Care Household is designed to care for those with memory loss, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
A: Rehabilitation and skilled nursing are both offered at Adams Woodcrest. An in-house therapy team from Adams Memorial Hospital provides physical, occupational and speech therapy six days a week. Our one-on-one therapy sessions foster individualized person-centered care.
Skilled nursing is a level of care for patients who require additional services beyond their hospital stay. Skilled nursing and rehabilitation services (also known as a swing bed program to individuals on Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans) are extremely beneficial when a patient is ready to leave the acute care level of a hospital stay but is not yet well enough to return home.
A: During an acute inpatient stay, physicians make recommendations for patients to ensure a safe discharge from the hospital. Some insurance plans require a qualifying inpatient stay of three days while other plans, specifically some of the Medicare Advantage Plans, do not require a three-day stay but rather documentation which could include labs, physician notes and therapy notes to support the need for a skilled nursing stay. Adams Woodcrest is in-network with most Medicare Advantage Plans.
A: In cases where an individual is unable to care for themselves for an extended period and a lack of assistance would result in personal injury, they would likely meet the requirement for Nursing Home Level of Care. Typically, states require individuals to be unable to care for themselves in more than one way. For example, a state might require the person to have a combination of memory issues and mobility issues. The reasons for which a person may be unable to care for themselves can be:
- Medical: Individual requires assistance with catheters, IV drips, ventilators or other medical devices
- Cognitive: Individual experiences memory issues resulting from Alzheimer’s/dementia or an inability to process information
- Behavioral: Individual is unable to control their actions or moods
- Functional: Individual is unable to manage activities of daily living (ADLs) like dressing, toileting and eating
