Long-Term Care Services
CLHF Homes proudly offers long-term care services for individuals suffering from traumatic brain injuries and other debilitating conditions. Experts define long-term care as services that medical professionals have designed to meet a person’s personal care or health needs over a short or long time period. With the help of long-term care services, we help people live as safely and independently as possible, even if they can’t perform daily activities by themselves.
If a person has an ongoing health condition or disability, such as a traumatic brain disorder, they may need long-term care services. In some cases, the need for these services arises suddenly, while it occurs gradually in others.
When we provide long-term care services, part of our program includes personal care assistance. In other words, we provide assistance with daily living activities, such as getting dressed, bathing, eating, or moving around the house. We also provide services such as cooking, cleaning, and transportation. Furthermore, we are fully equipped to offer medical services as well, ensuring that your loved one has the best possible level of care. This level of care is usually less intense than that a person would receive in a hospital, but more intense than the care that skilled nursing facilities provide. We offer long-term care services for a variety of conditions, including:
- Pulmonary conditions
- Burn care
- Care for complex wounds
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Congenital disorders
- Neuromuscular care
- Amputee care
Furthermore, unlike other long-term care homes, our community is designed for people of all ages, rather than just the elderly. To learn more about our care services, contact CLHF Homes today.
The CLHF Homes Difference
At CLHF Homes, our care homes truly have a home-like feel. Rather than feeling like they’re living in a hospital environment, they can feel like they’re living at home. With this home-like, personal environment, your loved one can recover more comfortably. In fact, we’ve even had birthday parties for patients in one of our large backyards, which wouldn’t be possible in an ICU or hospital setting. However, at the same time, your loved one is also getting a high level of care. For instance, we’re proud to offer specialized respiratory care services, which can assist residents with respiratory or pulmonary conditions.
In addition to the environment we offer, we also have a range of experienced staff members available at the home at all times, including licensed nurses. Each of our nurses is certified in ventilator and tracheostomy. They each also receive ongoing sub-acute training throughout their tenure at CLHF Homes.
CLHF Homes Long Term Care Services
In some situations, moving to one of our lovely care homes is not possible. In such cases, we’re proud to offer in-home care. With the help of this service, one of our staff members will come to your home and administer the same level of care that your loved one would receive in our care homes.
