After being in a hospital there’s nothing the average person wants more than to return to life as usual. Except there is no average person. No two people are alike physically, mentally or emotionally. Their rehab therapy needs to fit them specifically, with an emphasis on what will most effectively speed their recovery.
Rehabilitation therapy at Good Samaritan Society — Canistota are available for individuals who no longer need hospital care, but would benefit from additional therapy and care before resuming life in the community following injury, illness or surgery. When a person is admitted to the post-acute community, he or she enters a highly-specialized environment that is responsive and committed to individual healthcare needs. We offer long-term care focused on helping people of all ages recover quickly and return to the place they call home.
Does senior living feel like home?
Senior living should provide more than a place to live. It should offer a sense of comfort and safety. A sense of control. Most important, it should provide a true feeling of community. If you’re an avid bird-watcher, you may want a birdfeeder outside your window. Maybe you simply enjoy sitting and reading in your favorite chair. No matter what it is that makes home feel like home, your senior living community should provide those same comforts.
What kind of care should I expect in senior living and care?
Selecting a senior living community can be a difficult decision that often happens after a stressful event such as a fall, a surgery or a lifestyle change. The place you choose should treat you or a loved one as an individual, someone with a unique story. You should feel confident that the staff has experience helping people in similar situations and will treat you with compassion and patience.
What payment options are available?
It’s important to find out beforehand if services or care can be paid through your private pay, Medicare or long-term care insurance. Some offer other payment options depending on your unique situation. Be sure to make an appointment and talk with someone in the business office to determine your best options.
What services are provided?
Many senior living options provide a wide variety of services and amenities. These services should help you enjoy a relaxed, comfortable lifestyle. They should also meet your changing health and physical needs. From activities and lawn maintenance to meal programs and transportation, it’s important to select a senior housing community that provides the right services for you.
Will I lose independence?
Many people fear that they’ll give up their freedom when they move to senior living. In reality, a senior living community should offer more freedom. By helping make daily activities easier, you should have more flexibility to do the things you truly care about.
