Long-Term Care in Kansas City
Long-term care communities, also known as skilled nursing facilities, provide a wide range of health and personal care services to residents who require 24-hour care. Unlike assisted living communities, long-term care focuses on medical care more prevalently, including wound care, diabetic management with insulin injections, tube feeding, and more. Most long term care communities also offer Medicare Certified skilled nursing and rehab including physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Residents in a long-term care community typically live there full-time, but in certain cases, those discharged from the hospital stay for a short period to receive rehab therapy and medical support, then return home.
The entertainment provided in a long-term care community is geared more toward relaxation and slower-paced activities—bingo and trivia, movie nights, gardening, painting, and many more. Your loved one can enjoy being social with other residents while receiving the care and treatment they require. Physicians, nurses, and social workers are on staff 24/7 to ensure all medical needs are met at any time of day or night.
