When faced with senior care decisions, it is important to understand the various options available and the services you can expect from each provider. 

At Communities at Indian Haven, our caring team of medical professionals offers a person-centered approach with your recovery to help you get back to doing what you enjoy in life.

Skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services can also be provided in other health care settings, such as a home health provider or an inpatient rehabilitation hospital.  The Medicare program will often pay a portion of a skilled care stay provided in a nursing home setting when the nursing care and therapy services can only be safely and effectively performed by, or under the supervision of professionals or technical personnel. Skilled care providers offer around the clock licensed nurses to evaluate and manage a resident’s individual treatment plan.   Most skilled procedures are provided by registered nurses and rehabilitation therapists, with physicians available as needed. A skilled-care stay is usually a goal-oriented and client centered short-term stay averaging 14 to 21 days. Goals are established with a primary focus of improving physical function while recuperating from an acute illness, injury or surgery. At the conclusion of a skilled stay, individuals are often discharged back to their home in the community where they continue to live independently.

Individuals can also receive long-term care in a nursing facility.  Some residents need more day to day assistance than can be provided in their home which necessitates their transition to a longer term nursing home stay.  Care and services are typically focused on maintaining functional and/or cognitive capabilities and effective management of future declines.  The care focus expands to include permanent housing and social programming in addition to medical care.  Long-term nursing home care is typically paid by the consumer or through the Pennsylvania Medical Assistance Program.     

Communities at Indian Haven has earned a reputation for providing comprehensive skilled nursing to our residents with the highest level of specialized rehabilitation. In addition, resident and family members are treated as valued participating members of the transition team assisting with life after discharge.

Today’s nursing home serves two very different patient populations.  We can provide more complex medical care and rehabilitation services for those recovering from surgery or illness to assist with their return to home and community settings.    Additionally, we also provide long term support services that offer permanent support for day-to-day needs.
