When life is put on hold due to surgery, stroke, or injury, your doctor may require short-term nursing care or rehabilitation. Short-term rehabilitation at Westerwood helps you regain strength in a comfortable and supportive environment as you recover from a hospital stay or illness. Physical, occupational, and speech therapy are offered on-site with a top-notch medical team to get you back on your feet in no time. If you or your family member is currently in the hospital and in need of short-term rehabilitation, let your case manager know that you’re interested in coming to Westerwood. Your stay maybe covered by Medicare or private insurance.
When a loved one struggles with managing the activities of daily living or their health is declining due to a progressive illness, 24-hour supportive nursing care, outside of the home, may be needed. Westerwood offers quality long-term care at our five-star rated Medicare and Medicaid certified Health Care Center. The Health Care Center provides a choice of private or semi private rooms. Expenses are often covered by Medicare or private insurance.
The Life Care contract provides a flat-rate living cost so you can plan ahead for assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care or rehabilitation therapy, should you ever need it. It offsets the greatest expense associated with care that can easily reach $100,000 a year or more. There are several different types of Life Care contracts, so reach out to us to learn more today.
