A three-day qualifitying hospital stay is required and a maximum benefit of 100 days of care is allowed. Typically, the first 20 days of skilled care are covered by Medicare at 100 percent. Days 21-100 are covered at approximately 80 percent with the recipient being responsible for a 20 percent co-pay. Often, recipients choose supplemental coverage that pays for varying amounts of their co-pay. Others have chosen Medicare Replacement Policies that pay varying amounts and have various requirements.

Is the food good there? With an average of over 140 residents, each with unique tastes and wants, we make it a priority to offer variety, freshness and tastes. Our menus change quarterly to reflect the season and to take advantage of fresh ingredients. Residents have the ability to choose from a large assortment of menu items each day keeping with their physician prescribed dieting order. Typically, residents enjoy a full breakfast and hearty lunch. The evening meal tends to be a lighter meal. Meals served in the dining room begin between 8 and 8:30 a.m. for breakfast; noon for lunch; and 6 p.m. for dinner. Meals are also delivered to the room for those unable to eat in the dining room. Of course, snacks and beverages are served throughout the day.
What kind of activities are available? Our activities department works diligently to engage residents socially. Local entertainers, educators and visitors providing life-long learning opportunities are on campus virtually everyday. Additionally, games, fun and fitness, cooking demonstration, current event discussion and crafts are a part of each resident day - if they choose to be a part. Some residents find joy in helping others and become volunteers themselves.
