Care Options and Definitions

What’s the difference between long-term care and assisted living? Home care and adult day care? Find out here.

Sub-Acute/After-Hospital Care

Sub-acute/after-hospital programs are offered for patients who require medical and physical rehabilitation after a hospital stay. CareOne’s sub-acute/after-hospital care programs specialize in clinical services such as physician oversight, nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapies, social workers and licensed nutritionists. The ultimate goal is to return patients to the home setting fully recovered and as independent as possible.

Long-Term Care

Long-term care can often be the best option for individuals who require around-the-clock nursing care and clinical services. Offered at all CareOne centers, long-term care features specialized programs such as wound care, hospice care and Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Long-term care services are directed by physician oversight, and all services and amenities are tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient.

Assisted Living

Assisted living offers residential, apartment-style living for aging adults who require assistance with some care needs (i.e. medication management, activities of daily living, etc.). Residents enjoy restaurant-style meals, daily activities and entertainment and care services tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual.

Many assisted living communities also offer specialized units for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and related memory impairments. CareOne assisted living communities offer Harmony Village specialized units for people requiring memory care.

Home Care

There are many options for people who prefer home care services. Care at home ranges from Medicare-certified visiting nurses to private-duty nurses and home health aides. There are many factors involved when selecting a home care agency, from cost considerations to the type and amount of care that is offered. For more information about home care options, please contact the Admissions Office at the CareOne center of your choice.

Adult Day Care

Adult day care services offer a safe and secure environment for patients who can benefit from social activities and medical care during the day. Adult day care providers vary in the services offered and the types of insurance and funding accepted. CareOne can assist you in finding the right adult day care options in your community.

For more information about adult day care, please contact the Admissions Office at the CareOne center near you for assistance.

Hospice Care

Hospice can be a meaningful care option for individuals with chronic illnesses and for end-of-life care. Hospice care can be rendered in a care center like CareOne or at home. Services can include nursing care, home health aides, spiritual support and pain management. For more information about hospice care options in your community, please contact the Admissions Office at the CareOne center of your choice.
