Sometimes, you or a loved one may need an extended hospital stay. PeaceHealth offers long-term care in an on-site, licensed, skilled nursing facility to give you or your loved one a safe, comfortable environment for care. Long-term care provides medical care and help when moving to other types of care, including hospitalizations, home care and hospice, and end-of-life care.
Long-term care is provided by doctors, nurses, therapists and other health professionals who are skilled in long-term care. Their goal is to improve how patients function and help them stay independent as long as they can.
This care can also be useful for patients who need special help in their everyday lives. It includes help with preparing and eating meals, taking medicines and getting around.
